MRI Scans: Best Body Imaging
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.

MRI imaging provides a unique view into the interior of the human body and has become an essential tool of modern medical imaging and disease diagnosis.

In many cases, MRI provides important diagnostic information that cannot be obtained with other imaging techniques such as computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan, which gives off more radiation than a MRI.

Host of The Wizard of Eyes, Dr. Robert Abel, welcomes Delaware’s most experienced MRI Radiologist, Dr. Philip Chao, to share with you the latest equipment and techniques for noninvasive imaging of the brain and eyes.
