An MRI is a scan that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create precise body images to aid in diagnosing and treating many illnesses and conditions. At North Oaks Diagnostic Center and Livingston Parish Medical Complex, our MRI is circular-shaped, with flared openings on both sides, and provides the clearest and most accurate picture possible.  This is because the magnet strength is up to five times stronger than that of an open MRI, providing high-quality, high-resolution images while reducing scan times. 

Results are provided to your physician typically within 48 hours of your visit. Studies are read by a board-certified radiologist with North Oaks Imaging Associates, and are available to your physician in a CD format upon request.
