The University Hospital of Northern BC (UHNBC) in Prince George has done 1,360 more magnetic resonance imaging scans (MRIs) so far this fiscal year, a 33.2% increase over last year.

MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields to make images of the brain, heart, liver, arteries, and more, helping doctors diagnose and treat disease.
