Wooster Community Hospital offers both high field open, as well as, traditional cylindrical style Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). MRI is a noninvasive, state-of-the-art technology utilizing a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the human body without the use of ionizing radiation.
Ultrasound utilizes sound waves to evaluate many of the body's internal organs, as well as observation of unborn babies. Some exams, such as those for blood vessels and the heart, can be captured in real time. This provides an actual recording of information for the physician to review. Other organs, as well as unborn children, are best evaluated with a sequence of still pictures taken during the examination.
