An MRI scan typically takes between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on the area being scanned and the type of scan. They are performed on an outpatient basis so patients can return home the same day. MRI centers can provide reports within 24 hours after imaging is performed and provide transportation for patients who need sedation due to claustrophobia or anxiety or if they react to contrast dye.
Are MRI Scans Safe?
MRI scans are safe and comfortable for patients who were cleared to get scanned. During the MRI scan, you may hear repetitive tapping or other noises. It is important to stay as still as possible, so earplugs or music may be offered so you can stay as relaxed as possible. You should inform your doctor and MRI radiologist if you have any metal objects inside your body or suffer from claustrophobia. You will also be asked to remove all metal items to avoid MRI interference.
MRI Scans: Pinpointing Abnormalities
MRI scans are painless tests that can help doctors identify and diagnose abnormalities, injuries, and diseases causing symptoms. They provide detailed and accurate images of the body’s interior that allow doctors to pinpoint abnormalities within the patient’s body. MRI scans can help providers plan treatments and monitor disease progression.
