What is the technology used in MRI testing?
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Scan is a widely used procedure to check many body ailments and decide on the treatment course accordingly. MRI Scans are not invasive (i.e. no cut is made in the body) and painless. The scan uses magnetic rays to create detailed images of the organ being tested.
How is the MRI test done?
You will lie down on reclined stretcher that can move inside the hollow MRI machine. This is the case with most MRI machines which are doughnut shaped cylinders. Some other MRI machines which are called Open MRI machines, may not require you to lie down. The MRI may be done standing up.
What are different kinds of MRI tests?
1. MRI Scan with or without contrast:
Your doctor is in a best position to tell you whether a contrast material is required or a normal MRI Scan will do. MRI with contrast material in the body creates more details images of certain sections of the organ being tested. However, in most cases a normal MRI Scan will be enough.
Please note that MRI Scan with contrast costs higher ₹ 2500 to ₹ 6000 as compared to the same body part MRI Scan without contrast.
2. 1.5 Tesla MRI Test vs. 3 Tesla MRI Test:
Tesla is a unit of measurement of magnetic strength. MRI machines can either be 1.5 tesla or 3 tesla strong. 3 Tesla MRI Scan creates better images but a normal MRI Scan which is 1.5 tesla will do the same job in most cases at a lower price.
