Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic modality that produces detailed images of the body without the use of ionizing radiation. Patients at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham have access to the most sophisticated MRI technology available. All patients are screened to ensure their safety for MRI imaging as it entails the use of a magnetic field.

MRI scans enable radiologists to visualize the body function and structure and are frequently used in neurological, musculoskeletal and cancer imaging. 



The department is accredited with the American College of Radiology. Our technical staff are all registered with specific credentials for MRI imaging.

Appointments are available in the morning, afternoon and evening, Monday through Friday as well as mornings and afternoons on Saturday and Sundays.
