Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the body uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the inside of your body. It may be used to help diagnose or monitor treatment for a variety of conditions within the brain and spinal cord, joints, chest, heart, abdomen, pelvis and more. If youíre pregnant, body MRI may be used to safely monitor your baby.

 West Feliciana Hospitalís cutting-edge Hitachi Echelon Oval MRI combines the most comfortable patient experience possible with the highest quality diagnostics. With a 74 cm ultra-wide bore, the Oval is the widest MR system on the market providing space where patients need it most. With its feet-first imaging capabilities, the Oval also allows greater freedom for positioning. All of these features combine to accommodate larger patients and decrease claustrophobia.
