Pacific Coast Imaging is a comprehensive medical imaging facility serving the area of Orange with two convenient locations in Orange County. They specialize in various scan techniques, one being magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, which is a relatively new technology that allows doctors to clearly visualize the body’s internal structures and functions, offering greater detail than other methods such as computed tomography (CT) scans.
An MRI relies on a combination of powerful magnetic fields and radiofrequency to align hydrogen atoms within the body’s water content, which result in the production of images of the body’s organs, bones, and other tissues. The technique is especially useful in imaging the structures of the brain, the musculoskeletal system, the cardiovascular system, and tumors. Your MRI procedure may include injections of a special dye which is used to aid in producing higher-quality, higher contrast images. The MRI scan itself is painless and usually takes less than 30 minutes. At your initial visit, your specialist serving the Orange area will be able to tell you exactly what to expect during your scan.
An MRI can help your doctor differentiate between healthy and unhealthy, or pathologic, tissues, a technique especially important in treating cancer patients.
As MRI specialists serving the Orange area, the staff of Pacific Coast Imaging uses the latest, state-of-the-art MRI technology to ensure your doctor will receive the images he or she needs to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment regimen.
