Are Medical Scans Safe?

Medical scans such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) are safe and effective for providing detailed information that can be used to accurately diagnose a variety of injuries, diseases, and abnormalities. Other forms of MRIs such as weight-bearing MRIs, MRIs with brain image analysis, and Arthrograms are also safe medical procedures. They are used to reveal critical issues that aren’t visible under normal circumstances.

Who Can’t Have Medical Scans?

Although medical scans are typically extremely safe, certain people have conditions that can make medical scans dangerous. Patients who have metal implants, pacemakers, are or might be pregnant, or have any serious health problems, may not be recommended for MRI scans. The powerful magnet inside the machine could pose potential risks. Health care professionals can determine whether or not patients are qualified for medical scans and will recommend the perfect scan for their unique conditions.
