MRI, also known as Magnetic Resonance Imaging, uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create clearer, more detailed images of the inside of the body. MRI is a painless medical test that is often used to diagnose medical conditions, such as cancer and spinal injuries.
During the exam, you’ll be asked to lie on a fully cushioned table and will have a “coil” placed around the body part that is being imaged. The coil is a soft plastic material that captures the signal. Throughout your exam, you’ll hear a knocking or buzzing sound which signals that images are being taken. If contrast material is being used, your technologist or radiologist will guide you through the procedure to ensure you are comfortable with the process.
