Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
The Section of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at the Philippine Heart Center is equipped with a high-field (1.5 Tesla) MRI system. MRI uses a strong magnetic field and a sophisticated computer system to construct detailed, cross-sectional images of the body. These enhanced, high-resolution images help physicians study the brain, spine, joints, abdomen, pelvis, and the cardiovascular system.
