It uses radiofrequency waves and a strong magnetic field to generate detailed images of organs, the functional connectivity of the brain and structural details of soft body tissues such as the eyes, blood vessels, the female reproductive system, bladder, prostate and joints.

The 3T-MRI can be used to detect conditions such as strokes, multiple sclerosis, cancerous tumours and damage to the brain or spinal cord.
