Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to produce pictures of organs and structures inside the body.
MRI will often provide physicians with more information and detail than that provided by other imaging methods.
Cookeville Regional Medical Center is accredited in three areas of MRI: routine imaging, consisting of neuro, musculoskeletal (MSK), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and body imaging; breast and cardiac imaging, which require additional training and consist of their own accreditation process.
While some communities are just beginning to offer those services, Cookeville Regional has been leading the Upper Cumberland with some of those services for more than 15 years.
The MRI technologists at Cookeville Regional are all registered technologists committed to 24 hours of continuing education bi-annually to maintain their licensure. In addition to those requirements, Cookeville Regional requires that each technologist acquire MRI safety training and complete job performance competencies annually, all assuring you the best and safest health care today.
From 3T, breast, prostate and cardiac MRI, patients can rest assured that the best technology will find any issues that need to be resolved.
