Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the body's internal structures that are clearer, more detailed and more likely in some instances to identify and accurately characterize disease than other imaging methods. It is used to evaluate the body for a variety of conditions, including tumors and diseases of the liver, heart, and bowel. It may also be used to monitor an unborn child in the womb. MRI is noninvasive and does not use ionizing radiation.
Pediatric Sedation Program
Community Children's offers a pediatric sedation program that provides moderate and deep sedation allowing MRI scans, joint injections and other procedures to be done without intubation, avoiding potential negative effects of general anesthesia on the developing brain.
Community Medical Center is affiliated with Advanced Imaging to provide MRI Services. Please contact Advanced Imaging directly at (406) 327-3950 to schedule an appointment.
