Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, is a patient examination utilizing a magnetic field and radio waves to produce a detailed view of the inside of any portion of your body. It is a painless and extremely safe procedure because no radiation is used. Aided by a computer, MRI is able to produce an image of bone and soft tissue from many different body angles or planes. This enables our physicians to quickly and precisely diagnose a wide variety of conditions.
The scan usually takes from 30 to 60 minutes. Time may vary significantly, depending on the nature of the study and other factors.
  • Abdomen / Pelvis and exams requiring Contrast injection- Nothing to eat or drink 3 hours prior to exam.
  • Head / Neck-Do not wear any eye make-up.
  • All other MRI exams-There is no dietary restrictions prior to your MRI examination.
CT scan is an advanced system producing cross-sectional images of the body much like the slicing of a loaf of bread. It is a highly sensitive method to accurately view the internal anatomy and detect extremely small lesions. Utilizing high speed computers, the CT obtains 360 degrees of X-ray information. The information is processed into single slice images for display on a computer monitor and can be reproduced on film or high quality photographic paper.
  • You lie quietly on a table

    You will be asked to lie on a table that is connected to the CT scanner. Then the part of your body that is to be scanned will be positioned in the middle of the large, doughnut-shaped scanner ring. This ring holds the x-ray tube and the electronic detector that sends information to the computer.

  • The technologist may take preliminary scans

    If a contrast medium is to be used during your exam, the technologist will probably take some preliminary scans before the radiologist injects the material.

  • The radiologist may administer a contrast medium

    If a contrast medium is used, the radiologist or technologist will inject it into a vein, probably in your arm. Some or all of the solution may be injected by a syringe or by an automatic injector. Some or all of it may run slowly into your vein from an intravenous (IV) bottle that hangs on a pole next to the table. A tourniquet may be used to make the vein stand out for easier injection. A tourniquet is simply a band that is wrapped tightly around your arm, similar to, but smaller than, the cuff that is wrapped around your arm when you have your blood pressure taken.

  • Wait for the radiologist to review the scans

    After the exam is over, the radiologist will look at all the images to make sure they contain all the needed information. You will be asked to wait while this is done because sometimes it is necessary to do repeat scans or take additional scans.

  • Dress and return home

    After the radiologist has a complete set of scans, you may change back into your clothes and go home. If you are a hospitalized patient, you may go back to your room.

  • Drink plenty of fluids

    Unless you have other tests scheduled, you may eat normal meals after the exam and your doctor will suggest that you drink plenty of fluids. Fluids will help eliminate the contrast medium from your body.
