MRI

About MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the most advanced medical imaging tool available. This extraordinary diagnostic test uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed, high resolution images of the inside of the body.

The test takes place on a comfortable table in an open area of the scanner, and typically takes 35 to 45 minutes. The technologist uses a computer, intercom and adjacent window during testing, and can see and hear the patient at all times.

It’s natural to experience some anxiety before medical testing; knowing what to expect can help!

Know before you go…

> Wear comfortable, loose clothes (no metal zippers/fasteners)
> Leave jewelry & valuables at home or with someone; they must be left outside the testing room
> Tell us about any implanted medical devices (pacemakers, aneurysm clips, etc.) that may be incompatible with magnetic fields (don’t worry, we’ll ask)
> No special preparations or dietary restrictions are required
> A friend or family member may accompany you
> Remaining as still as possible is very important, and may help us complete your scan more quickly
> If your images should require injection of a contrast agent, we’ll discuss it with you first
