standard-title MRI Services
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) exam is a modern way of looking at disease processes without using radiation.
MRI exams produce highly detailed images of the body and changes in tissue chemistry by using a powerful magnet with an advanced computer system and radio waves. It is particularly useful in diagnosing conditions of the brain, spine, abdomen and joints.
At Putnam Radiology Group in Palatka, our MRI suite is developed to make your experience as comfortable as possible. With natural lighting, headphones for listening to music, and a two-way communication system that allows you to speak with a technologist at any time, your wellbeing is our top priority. Patients are welcome to bring their own music to listen to during exams.
