Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields, magnetic field gradients, and radio waves to generate images of the organs in the body.
The higher resolution of the 3 Tesla MRI produces more detailed images, which are beneficial when diagnosing pathological conditions involving the whole body and particularly the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal system. The resolution and clarity also allow radiologists to identify smaller lesions and anatomical structures that cannot be seen with less powerful machines.
What to Expect
Every MRI scan is different, but most scans take approximately 30-45 minutes. You should not have an MRI scan if you are, or suspect you may be pregnant. It is very important to inform the doctor or the nurse prior to the scan if you have been diagnosed with any form of kidney disease, or if you have any of the following; metal implants or objects: aneurysm clips, artificial heart valve, bullets, cardiac pacemaker, eye/orbital prostheses, hip or knee prostheses, insulin pump implant, intra-cranial bypass graft clips, middle or inner ear prosthesis, shrapnel or sternal wire.
