An MRI uses magnetic waves and computers to make pictures of the inside of the body. It can make two-dimensional and three-dimensional pictures.

You may have an MRI to diagnose a condition or look for internal injuries. MRIs can look at any body part, from your head to your toes. MRIs can also be used to see if medication or treatment is working for a specific disease like cancer.
