Glossary of terms

Here’s a guide to assist you in understanding the meaning of the terminology used by CBHS.

  • MRI

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to investigate the anatomy and function of the body in both health and disease. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radio waves to form images of the body. The technique is widely used in hospitals for medical diagnosis, staging of disease and for follow-up without exposure to ionizing radiation.

    CBHS does not pay a benefit if an MRI is performed as a non-admitted patient.
