Magnetic Resonance Imaging
This test is used to see detailed images inside the body without using x-rays or radioactive injections.
MRI uses radio waves and magnetic fields to align atoms within the body. You’ll feel no pain, discomfort or sensation of any kind during the MRI.
What about my medical history?
Be sure to make your MRI technologist is aware of any metal that might be detected during the MRI scan including metal implants, surgical staples, aneurysm clips, a pacemaker, shrapnel, hearing aids, dental bridges, cochlear implants, spine stimulator, body tattoos, or an inferior vena cava umbrella.
Also let us know if you’re pregnant or have ever been a metal worker.
