What is an MRI scan?
MRI Scan or magnetic resonance imaging scan is a medical test that uses an advanced MRI machine to create images of our body parts that are being checked. MRI Scan can be done for the brain, knee, KUB (Kidney Ureter Bladder), ankle, abdomen, PNS (paranasal sinuses), and many other body parts.
MRI Scan is a non-invasive and painless process. It does not have radiation because magnetic rays are used to create images. X-rays are not used.
Why is an MRI scan done?
MRI scan is done to detect and diagnose various abnormalities in your body such as
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Kidney or liver disease
- Bone damages
- Heart diseases, etc.
It is also done to plan for surgery and to evaluate the success of it.
How to prepare for the MRI scan?
Generally, there are no special preparations required for an MRI scan. You can have your normal diet and carry on regular activities before the procedure.
However, in some cases, a contrast material will be used to get enhanced details of the body part. You should fast for a few hours before the procedure if any contrast dye is used. It will be given either orally or injected into the vein.
You should also remove all the objects containing metallic contents such as jewelry, watches, clips, etc before entering the MRI room.
How is an MRI scan performed?
MRI scan is a non-invasive imaging technique. An MRI machine looks like a huge doughnut with magnets attached to it. You should lie down on a table that slides into the MRI machine.
Once you are inside the MRI, the large magnets will start rotating around your body. This will create strong electromagnetic pulses inside your body. These signals will be picked and sent to a computer to process into an image.
The entire procedure will be monitored by a radiologist from a different room with the help of a microphone and speakers.
Usually, it will take around 90 minutes to complete the entire procedure.
What are the risks involved in an MRI scan?
MRI scan is quite safe compared to other imaging techniques that use radiation to examine your body. You may create allergic reactions if any contrast dye is used. Apart from this, an MRI scan is completely safe.
Though it is safe, an MRI scan also has its limitations. People with metallic implants such as pacemakers, artificial heart valves, plates, clips, etc are restricted from taking an MRI scan.
