About MRI scans

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful diagnostic tool that can be used for many neurological and musculo-skeletal conditions that have occurred as a result of injury. MRI tests can be used to produce an accurate representation of many parts of the body, including the brain, spinal cord, bones, and internal organs. By using powerful magnetic fields, the radiographer in charge is able to obtain a detailed picture of the specific body part, which can then be viewed on a computer screen.

Some people may require a full body MRI scan while others may only need an MRI procedure focusing on a certain part of the body, for example the brain. After the procedure, a radiologist will analyse the results of the MRI scan and confirm any injuries that have shown up on the image – an MRI diagnosis can then be made.

How MRI scans are used in court

During a court case, it is imperative to have thorough medical evidence and the necessary reports to back up specific elements of your client’s claim, in order to be successful.
