MRI

MRI is a powerful tool that uses magnetic fields instead of x-rays to obtain very detailed images of the human body.  MRI images have been shown to be very safe for medical purposes.

The MRI scan is performed inside a large cylindrical machine through which a table is able to move. The patient lies on the table and the table is positioned for the exam. RIMI uses scanners which are short in length making the studies much more comfortable for claustrophobic patients.  Since the machine uses a strong magnetic field, it is important to let the technologist know of any metal on or in your body.

Some MRI exams require an injection of an MRI contrast or dye. The contrast used for MRI is different than used for CT scans, but it is still important for you to notify the technologist of any allergies you may have and whether you have had contrast injections in the past.  It is always a good idea to increase your fluid intake after an imaging exam involving contrast material to help flush the contrast material from your body.  Typical MRI studies require 30 to 60 minutes and it is important to remain motionless throughout the exam.  All MRI exams at RIMI are interpreted by board certified radiologists with subspecialty training in MRI.
