ABOUT MRI

MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a painless, non-invasive exam that can produce images of the entire body without harmful radiation.  It is used to facilitate precise diagnosis and treatment as well as assessment prior to surgery or other medical procedures.

While generally extremely safe there are some special considerations.  Pregnant women should not be exposed to MRI unless approved by a physician.  In addition, individuals that have worked with metal, such as sheet metal workers, welders or grinders, will require careful screening by the MRI technologist and may require an additional x-ray exam of the eyes prior to their exam.  Also, people with metal plates, implants, pacemakers or surgical clips will require careful screening.

BENEFITS OF MRI

MRI is an extremely accurate method for diagnosing many health problems and diseases. It produces exceptionally precise, three-dimensional images of the body facilitating precise diagnosis and treatment. The images will also help improve surgical assessment and procedures. The diagnostic information that will be rendered from your MRI will help your physician treat the medical condition, which will help the patient return to their daily activities.
