Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful tool to get spatial information about muscles of different regions inside the body. It has the advantage of being non-invasive and being without any radiations. It is objective and quantitative tool. This review covers the basics of MRI and informs about how the image is obtained using MRI.
