What is the technology behind MRI imaging?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) generates images of the body without using radiation. Instead, a MRI uses a strong magnet and radio waves to create an image. There are no known harmful effects from the magnetic field or exposure to radio waves associated with creating MRI images.
What can I expect with the MRI Exam?
The exam is painless and on average takes less than 30 minutes, excluding preparation time. The amount of time varies depending on the type and number of exams for which you are scheduled. During the exam, you will be asked to lie on a movable table. A coil or small antenna-like device may be placed over the body part to be examined. Once you have been positioned, the technologist will move the table under the MRI scanner. The technologist monitors you throughout the procedure.
When your exam is complete you may leave and resume regular activities. A radiologist will review your exam images and report the findings to your doctor within 48 hours. Your doctor will then discuss the findings and next steps with you.
