How can an MRI test help you?

An MRI helps a physician in looking for a disease or an injury and can help them find out how your body is responding to a treatment. It can also be done when x-rays or CT scans fail to deliver detailed information about your condition.
An MRI can help keep a check on the health of certain organs including ovaries, kidneys, breasts, prostate, pancreas or liver. Or it can also aid in having a look at different ongoing conditions in your body which include:
  • Brain injuries
  • Cancer
  • Blood vessel damage
  • Ear and eye problems
  • Stroke
  • Bone infections
  • Damaged joints

What are the requirements of an MRI test?

Don’t carry any metallic items including cell phones, coins, hearing aids, eyeglasses or watches, as metal is strictly prohibited in MRI procedure rooms. This is because the magnetic field in the machine can attract all metal based items, and they will eventually create disruptions in your procedure.
Do talk to your doctor briefly if you have any implanted limbs or joints, fillings in your teeth, body piercings, artificial heart valves, cochlear implants, pacemakers or drug pumps. Make sure to discuss your tattoos because some inks contain metal fragments.

How to prepare for an MRI test?

  1. On the day of your test wear loose and comfy clothing, your technician might also get you changed into a gown.
  2. You may hear a loud thumping sound from the machine during the procedure so you can ask for earplugs or carry your own to muffle the sound.
  3. If you fear enclosed spaces do discuss it with your doctor before the procedure so that they can give you a relaxant or perform your procedure in an open MRI machine.

How is an MRI performed?

An MRI machine looks like a large tube with magnets surrounding it. You’ll be asked to lie on a sliding table, then you’ll get a contrast dye called gadolinium in your hand or arm. Straps may be there to help your body stay firm.

Your body is then slided into the machine and the machine initiates creating a magnetic field inside your body.
Then a computer picks signals from the machine and starts creating a series of images. The procedure takes around 20-90 minutes.

How can you interpret the results of an MRI?

Only a specially trained doctor or radiologist is able to read and understand the results of an MRI. They will then forward the results to your physician and then your physician will interpret them for you.
