What is MRI scanning?

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan) is imperative for a detailed image of tissues and organs. It uses radio waves and magnetic fields to get a clear picture of the affected organ. It is recommended in times of head injuries, strokes, tumors, breast cancer, joint disorders, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, mental trauma, etc. And it is regarded as the safest medical procedure as there is no evidence of the severe side effects.

What organs are scanned through MRI?

The organs of the body such as Brain, Spinal cord, Head, Abdomen, Bone, joints (knee, shoulder, wrist, etc.), Heart, blood vessels (cardiology), Liver, kidneys, Breast, and Womb, etc. are scanned through MRI.

The inauguration of a 1.5 T Magnetic Resonance Imaging system in Liberty Scan was the first of its kind in Asia. This whole body MR system with a superconducting magnet has a wide range of capabilities and the images generated by it are at par with the best in the country. High Definition Data Acceleration Technology, and applications are optimized for each anatomical area and, delivers images with the enhanced contrast, clarity, and accuracy.

  • When you come for your MRI scan you are requested to bring the doctor’s prescription and any previous scans (CT, MRI, USG, X-ray, PET-CT). This information will help our radiologist plan and generate an appropriate report.
  • There are no special preparations necessary for the MRI examination unless specified by your doctor.
  • You won’t be allowed to wear anything metallic during the MRI examination, so it would be best to leave watches, jewelry or anything made from metal at home. Even some cosmetics contain small amounts of metals, so it is best to not to wear make-up.
  • In order to prevent metallic objects from being attracted by the powerful magnet of the MRI system, you will typically receive a gown to wear during your examination
  • Before the MRI procedure, you will be asked to fill a screening form asking about anything that might create a health risk or interfere with imaging (e.g., pacemaker, metal implant, aneurysm clip, foreign metal objects, shrapnel or bullet wounds). You will also undergo an interview by a member of the MRI facility to ensure that you understand the questions on the form.
  • Check with the MRI technologist or radiologist at the MRI center if you have questions or concerns about any implanted object or health condition that could impact the MRI procedure. This is particularly important if you have undergone surgery involving the brain, ear, eye, heart, or blood vessels.
