Physicians may recommend various types of medical scans for their patients depending on their unique situations. MRIs are used to take detailed images and identify problems around the bones, brain, spine, and joints. Weight Bearing MRIs can reveal herniated discs and bulges around the spinal canal. Neuroquant can assess neurological conditions and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Multiple Sclerosis. An arthrogram provides a clear image and detailed information about the soft tissue in the joint. MRAs are used to evaluate blood vessels and identify abnormalities.
What Can I Expect During a Medical Scan?
Medical scans are painless and relatively quick. The duration of medical scans will vary depending on the type of scan and area being scanned. Patients will be asked to remove any metal objects and will be provided with a private changing room where they can change into a gown for the scan. During medical scans, patients will lie on the cushioned table that slides into the scanning machine. They can communicate with the technician, wear ear protection, or listen to music during the scan.
