Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Southern Tennessee Regional Health Systems's experience in MRI is unsurpassed with over 70 years combined radiology experience, with sub-specialties in sports medicine imaging, body and neuro-radiology. STRHS promises to continue our leadership role in MRI and medical imaging by bringing our southern middle Tennessee patients the latest MRI techniques as they become available.
