MRI CENTRE all you need to know

SO YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE MRI SCAN????

Your doctor has arranged for you to have an MRI. What is MRI? Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a medical technology that uses a magnetic field and rafio-waves to examine the internal organs of our body.

It does not use x-rays. The pictures produced during the scan can help your doctor define the differences between healthy and diseased tissues.

The scan pictures provide valuable information to help your doctor choose the most suitable treatment for you.

PREPARING FOR MRI

Can I eat? –You can eat and drink as usual. No special preparation is needed before the scan. If sedation is needed for you during the scan , you will be informed of what you can or cannot take.

Children may need sedation — Your doctor will give you instruction regarding this.

No make up Please— Do not apply any substance such as hair spray or mousse to your hair and do not use make-up as this substance may alter the pictures or images.

Please be punctual for your appointment— The scans require scheduling. If you miss your scan, your doctor may not have the information he needs to make a medical decision on your condition. If you arrive late, they will have to reschedule tour appointment.

Inform us if you have any of the following: *pacemakers*artificial heart valves *metallic clips used in brain surgery * neuro-stimulators* metal implants *implanted hearing aids*Metal fragments in your eyes*metal shrapnels in your body * Intra-uterine contraceptive devices (IUD) *claustrophobia (fear of enclosed space) * Also please tell if you are pregnant.

ON THE DAY OF SCAN

Before the scan— Radiographer will describe the procedure to you and answer any questions or doubts that you may have.

Do not carry magnetic items with you–Remove any magnetic or metalic item like your wallet, watch, keys, magnetic strip cards (ATM or Credit cards), hair pins, clips, jewellery. You will be asked to change into patient gown.

WHEN THE SCAN IN PROGRESS....

Simple and painless— you will lie flat on a padded table whisch is designed to slide into the centre of the magnet.

Keep very very still— once you are comfortably positioned, it is important that you remain relaxed and completely still during the scan. Movement will result in unclear images and will need to repeat the scanning.

During the scanning— While the machine is in operation, you will hear intermittent humming and thumping sounds common to all MRI equipment. Ask for ear plugs if the sound bothers you . You will have all times, voice contact with the radiographer who will observe you clearly from the control room on the video monitor. If you need attention, please press the call buzzer given to you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE ?

Depending on the information that your doctor needs, the scan can take between 15 to 45 minutes.

WHEN ENCHANCING THE SCAN IMAGE IS REQUIRED..

In some cases the radiologist may order an image enhancement agent. This is a solution which is given as an injection into vein in your arm. If this is needed, it does not mean that your condition is more serious. So do not worry. It simply means that the radiologist wants a clearer picture.

THE REPORT

The radiologist will review the images obtained during the scan to check that they are clear. The report will be sent to your doctor who will then discuss the scan results with you.
