Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a tomographic imaging technique that produces images of internal physical and chemical properties of the body by measuring the emitted nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signals. In a typical MRI exam, the patient lies inside the machine and a radiofrequency (RF) signal is emitted into the patient body, which responds by emitting another RF signal.1 The received signal is recorded and processed to yield the MRI image.
