Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is diagnostic imaging technology that uses a strong magnet and radio frequency waves to produce pictures or “images” of your internal organs and structures.

Because MRI allows your doctor to see inside your body from any angle with great clarity, it is giving doctors a wealth of information more quickly, and in may cases, more economically than past test and exploratory surgeries.

 

 

Your MRI Exam

image2.gifYour MRI exam is really quite simple. With the assistance of an MR technologist, you will be positioned on a padded table. Because it is essential that you remain as still as possible, you may be secured with soft Velcro straps.

The padded table will move smoothly into the magnet opening and your exam will begin. During your MRI exam you won’t feel anything. The only thing you’ll notice is a knocking or buzzing sound that occurs as the images are being taken. You should be provided with earplugs to wear during the scan. The length of your exam is dependent on the type of study being done. Many MRI exams are completed in about half an hour.

An intercom and mirror arrangement in the system allows the MR staff to see and hear you throughout the exam. If you become uncomfortable at any point, just say no. The MRI staff will be right there to assist you.

Once the exam is completed your technologist will bring you back to the preparation room to collect your belongings. And that’s all there is to it.

Magnets and Metals Don't Mix

When you first enter the MR Clinic, you must let your MR physicians for technologist know if you have a pacemaker, surgical clips, prosthesis, metal implants or any other metal objects in your body. Some implants (e.g., a pacemaker) may be affected by an MR examination. The clinic personnel will then determine whether or not you should proceed with the MR examination.

Any metal materials that might be affected or attracted by the powerful magnet use for MR imaging should be left at home or given to the MR staff for safekeeping. This list included you watch, coins, keys, bobby pins, credit cards, pocket knives, etc.
