Nowadays, radiological health technologies are necessary especially for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases to be maintained effectively. The use of magnetic resonance (MR) technology, which was first used in 1973, is increasing daily. The absence of radiation risk and high sensitivity in soft tissue imaging are among the main reasons for the widespread use of MRI technology. MRI can be used alone for imaging of tissues, or it is used with contrast-enhancing agent to obtain high anatomic details.
