Cardiac MRI

doctor and patient

If you hurt your back and conservative treatments weren’t reducing the pain, you’d probably talk to your doctor about getting a Lumbar MRI to get to the bottom of what’s causing the discomfort. Likewise, if you experience pain or discomfort in your chest, consider talking to your doctor about a Cardiac MRI.

MRI – whether for your back or your heart – is a proven imaging technique for visualizing a broad range of conditions in an extremely safe way, with no exposure to radiation. If you and your doctor believe a Cardiac MRI is right for you, call to schedule an appointment at Franciscan Health Valparaiso CDI.

  • Functional issues like valve failure
