Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound are two methods of taking dynamic visual images inside the body without the use of radiation used in x-ray and CT scans. MRI is a noninvasive, diagnostic technique capable of displaying high quality, cross-sectional images. MRI uses powerful magnets and radio waves and ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body.
A brand new state-of-the-art III Tesla MRI Magnet is now available in the new Dixie Regional Health & Performance. It offers the best quality MRI imaging currently available. Only a handful of these machines are in use in the entire intermountain west.
What can I expect once I receive a doctor's order for an MRI or ultrasound?
Once you have received an order and your doctor has discussed your treatment options, your doctor's office will send an order to the imaging department. Our Intake Coordinator will then contact you to schedule an appointment. If you don't here from us within one day, please call us at (435) 251-1777.
