• Patient table – patient table where patient lie down inside the scanner.
• Radio Frequency Coil – It is like “antenna" of the MRI system, spreading the radio frequency signal to the patient and / or receiving the return signal.
• Gradient Coil- Gradient coils are used to produce slow variations in the main magnetic field (B0). The gradient coils are used to spatially encode the positions of the MRI spins by changing the magnetic field linearly across the imaging volume.
• Magnet – The most important part of this MRI system is the magnet. There is a horizontal tube – when the patient enters the magnet run through from front to back. This tube is called as the bore.
• Scanner - An MRI scanner is a large tube that contains powerful magnets. You lie inside the tube during the scan.

On the other hand, there are different types of technologies, images that can be created through which the medical professional/ doctor can look into the body to identify abnormal conditions. The medical image is a window to the body. No image window reveals everything. Different medical imaging methods tell different features of the human body. Each of the method, the range of image quality and structure brightness can be great, its depend on the features of the imaging equipment, skill of the operator (Medical professor), and give and take with factors such as patient radiation exposure and imaging
