Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) information
The tunnel in the MRI machine is roughly 60-70 cm in diameter. The machine is air conditioned, lit and open from both ends. At times, the machine may produce high volumes, for which you receive ear plugs. A nurse can be contacted at all times during the examination. The length of the examination can be 15-45 minutes depending on the machine.
A contrast agent without iodide might be infused into the veins of the arm to better the contrast of the imaging examination.
MRI can be used to investigate traumas and diseases of musculoskeletal system, head, neck, stomach, breasts and the circulatory system among other.
