Most MRI examinations are completed within 30 minutes, depending on the type of information needed by your physician. During the MRI examination patients will be lying comfortably on their back. Patients will need to remain as relaxed and as motionless as possible during the imaging examination. MRI imaging is very sensitive to motion as in photography, motion will blur your images. The scanning process does not cause any pain you will hear a mild knocking noise as the MRI machine takes its pictures. A trained MRI technologist will perform your exam and will always be available during the procedure.


Preparation is not required for most MRI examinations. Patients may feel more comfortable wearing their own clothing that is free of metallic objects. If not we will provide comfortable metallic free clothing for your MRI examination. You will be asked to remove all metallic objects from your person before entering the MRI examination room. Some examples are hearing aids, keys, coins, jewelry, glasses, credit cards, hair pins or other metal objects that can affect the MRI. You may also be asked to remove your dentures if applicable. You will personally lock your belongings and retain the key during your imaging procedure.
