MRI Scan

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is non- Invasive procedure that uses a specialised magnetic field along with radiowaves to create a detailed digital picture of a specific organ or region inside the body. MRI images and resolution are quite detailed, it can detect tiny changes of structures within the body. For some procedures, contrast medium gadolinium are used to increase the accuracy and visibility of particular tissues or area that are relevant to the scan.
Depending upon the information needed and the part of the body to be imaged, our MRI session may last from 10 to 30 minutes in near silent environment.

Our MRI charges vary from ₹ 180-250 per minute.

Procedure

Mediclaim-Facilities

Preparation

An MRI scan is a painless and safe procedure.During the exam, it’s important to stay still to obtain the clearest images. Children who have difficulty staying still may need sedation,administered either orally or through an IV line. Sedation can also be helpful for adults who are claustrophobic.

Stichless-surgery

Pre-scan

You will lie down on a table that slides into the MRI machine. The table slides through a large magnet shaped like a tube. You may have certain equipment fitted around your body. There will be a microphone in the machine that allows you to communicate with staff.

Throat-Treatment

During Scanning

The test normally takes 10 to 30 minutes. You may receive a contrast solution, usually gadolinium, through an IV injection to see certain parts of your body more detailed, particularly your blood vessels, tumours, suspected lesions. Our MRI scanner is much silent than other devices. You may be offered earplugs to block the MRI machine’s noises, or you may listen to music during the test.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

ARE ALL MRI IS THE SAME?

No, A magnetic resonance imaging MRI machine are sophisticated medical imaging and diagnostic device. In the past all MRI machines are not only worked the same, but also looked the same. Today there are three different types of MRI scanners available in service ranging from 0.2Tesla to 1.5Tesla refurbished for scanning to patients.Older center will have high chance of having an an old generation machine, because these machinates are not able replace minimum 15 years life span.

ARE THERE ANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF MRI SCANNER?

Yes, There are a variety of different MRI scanners are in service around us. The most common facilities those scanners are in free standing facilities charge low price for MRIs are inferior quality images, they may not have the latest equipments or technological advancement compare to new generation machines, that certainly vary the quality image like 2G, 4G Technology, thus this will reflect the diagnostic quality and difficulty to find decease conditions.

CAN I TALK DURING THE SCAN?

Though you will need to remain still, you will be able to communicate with the technician at various intervals. You are free to ask questions and answer any questions addressed to you.

IS MRI SAFE?

Yes, getting an MRI scan is very safe. Unlike CT scans, this diagnostic imaging method does not involve any exposure to radiation. In fact, there are no known side effects related to MRI scans. However, because it does involve exposure to a strong magnetic field, patients with certain devices like cardiac pacemakers and other implants cannot get an MRI done.

DOES MRI HAVE RADIATION?

MRI uses no ionizing radiation. The basic components of MRI are a strong magnetic field and a brief pulse of a radio frequency. There are no known side effects related to MRI. Since there is a strong magnetic field however, people with certain devices such as pacemakers, defibrillators, aneurysm clips and certain cochlear implants must not enter the MRI room.

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY EXAM?

Some MRI procedures require patient preparation before the examination such as fasting. The MRI department will inform your doctor, who will in turn, inform you. If you are claustrophobic, please ask your doctor to prescribe medication for you, and bring it with you on the day of your appointment. We ask that you also bring with you, any previous examination (X-ray, CT scan, etc.) that is relevant to your MRI exam.
