The patient is placed on a sliding table and positioned comfortably. Then the radiologist and technologist leave the room and the individual MRI sequences are performed. The patient is able to communicate with the radiologist or technologist at any time using an intercom. Also we allow a friend or, if a child is being examined, a parent to stay in the room
- Depending on how many images are needed, the exam will generally take 25 to 45 minutes, although a very detailed study may take longer.
- Typically an MRI examination consists of two to six imaging sequences, each lasting two to 15 minutes.You will be asked not to move during the actual imaging process, but between sequences some movement is allowed. Patients are generally required to remain still for only a few seconds to a few minutes at a time.
- Depending on the part of the body being examined, a contrast material (usually gadolinium) may be used to enhance the visibility of certain tissues or blood vessels. A small needle connected to an intravenous line is placed in an arm or hand vein.
- When the exam is over the patient is asked to wait until the images are examined to determine if more images are needed. A radiologist will analyze the images and prepare a report with his or her interpretation.
