The article offers information about the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is considered as the latest type of imaging system in medicine, which is a non-invasive imaging technique regardless of ionizing radiation. It provides tomographic images in multiple planes. While calcium emits no signal, MRI is considered useful in imaging tissues encased in bone, such as brain and spinal cord. It provides non-invasive, high resolution multiplanar images for clinical and research purposes.
