About This Service
To see inside your body, doctors use Magnetic Resonance Imaging, also known as MRI. There is no exposure to x-Rays and they are completely non-invasive. An MRI uses magnetic fields and computer-generated radio waves to create images of the organs and tissue inside your body. These images allow doctors to diagnose a broad spectrum of possible medical conditions.
An MRI exam usually takes approximately 45 minutes. Arrive at least 15 minutes early to verify your registration information and complete patient registration forms. Please make sure you have your insurance cards with you. Patients will need to remove all metal in preparation for their exam. Bring previous scans with you to the exam if you are instructed to do so. Notify your physician and our staff if there is any chance that you may be pregnant or are currently breastfeeding. Please do not bring small unaccompanied children for your MRI, as they may not enter the exam room with you. Our staff will send the results of your exam directly to your physician within 24 hours. Your physician will discuss the results with you at your next scheduled appointment or by telephone.
