IS AN MRI SCAN LIKE AN X-RAY?
No. An MRI scan uses a powerful magnet in conjunction with radio frequency waves to generate images of your internal organs and structures without radiation.
HOW LONG WILL THE EXAM TAKE?
That will depend on what is being studied but a typical exam lasts 20 – 45 minutes. You should allow extra time in case the exam lasts longer than expected.
DOES THE MACHINE MAKE A LOT OF NOISE?
Yes, there is significant noise made by the magnet. Our exclusive CinemaVision program blocks out the noise with either music, TV programs or movies.
DO I HAVE TO REMAIN STILL THE WHOLE TIME?
It is important for image clarity and optimum scan results to hold still during the exam. Keep in mind a routine exam will take at least 20 minutes.
MRI isn’t for everyone. Be sure to inform your physician if you have a pacemaker, aneurysm clips in the brain, a shunt with telesensor, inner ear implants, medication patches, metal fragments in one or both eyes, implanted spinal cord stimulators or if you are pregnant, breasfeeding, or have anemia or any disease affecting red blood cells.
