Title MRI an Emerging Revolution in Medical Imaging Technology

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a latest medical imaging technology which provides excellent images of the inside of the human body without any surgical procedures. MRI is a non-ionizing and powerful diagnostic medical imaging modality that uses magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of the organs and structures inside the body. My talk will cover the fundamental principles of MRI. I will also shed light on how MRI has revolutionized the field of medical imaging. I will also discuss about the future applications of MRI
