What is MRI?
MRI scans use strong magnetic fields alongside radio waves to produce images of great detail and show us what is happening inside the patient’s body. The scanners themselves are large tubes that feature magnets, used to create strong magnetic fields. Patients lie on flat beds that is then moved inside scanner, the process is painless.
What can MRI be used for?
Virtually any part of the body can be scanned during the process. MRI scans are commonly used to examine the brain and spinal cord, bones and joints, the heart and blood vessels, the breasts and organs like the liver and womb. Once an MRI has taken place, the results can be interpreted to diagnose conditions, create treatment plans and find out how successful previous treatments have been. MRI scans are advantageous as they do not radiate the individual with x-ray radiation, like with Computed Tomography (CT) scanners. Not all individuals are suitable for MRI scans, for instances those with artificial heart valves or insulin pumps.
More about MRI scans..
MRI scanners are operated by radiographers, who you can normally communicate with during the process. Patients often wear headphones to block the noise from the scanner coils. Scans can last for as little as 15 minutes or as long as 90 minutes. The length of the scan is determined by how many images are needed and how big the scanned area is.
