Diagnostic Services - MRI Scans

MRI machines are located in the Prairie Mountain Health, Southern Health-Santé Sud, and Winnipeg regional health authorities. Ask your health care provider where you are having your scan.

What is an MRI?

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In some cases, a contrast material (dye) may be injected to show pictures of organs or structures more clearly.

 

Please note:  not all facilities perform all types of MRI scans.
