WHAT IS AN MRI?

An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is the most sophisticated imaging modality that has revolutionised modern radiology. Maxlife Diagnostic has an internationally recognised MRI team who specialises in clinical diagnosis, research, and education.

An MRI scan uses a strong magnetic field to form superbly detailed views of parts of the body, particularly joints and soft tissue such as the brain, spinal cord and muscles. Unlike other imaging tests, MRI does not use radiation. For this reason, MRI is of particular use in the evaluation of paediatric patients, whose organs are more radio-sensitive than adults. MRI is a painless procedure and can take from 5 to 45 minutes to perform depending on the examination requested by your doctor.

HOW DOES MRI SCAN WORK?

An MRI scan requires three basic components including a computer, magnetic field, and radio waves. The three elements are used to create visually advanced and clear images of the internal organs of a human body. The human body has numerous hydrogen atoms, which are magnetic in nature. When the body is out into a magnetic field, these atoms align with the field’s intensity. With the radio wave, the MRI machine works against the polarity of these atoms and the time these atoms take to resume to their magnetic condition is measured using a sensor.

MRI procedure is used to check the water/ fluid content of the body and the images show it as black-colored accumulation in the images.

To further advance the imaging, the doctors may use a dye to your bloodstream and check specific tissues. The gadolinium content of the die has magnetic properties, which when absorbed by any organ, stands out in the images.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Maxlife Diagnostic Center, we are an MRI scan center that pays great importance to your convenience and offers you all types of assistance in your diagnostic tests. MRI is a magnetic and radio wave involving test and hence you must prepare for it a little. Here is what you should do:

  • Remove all metallic accessories
  • Notify the technologist about any prosthetic joint, IUD, Pacemaker, metal plates, screws, shunts, tattoos, and more.
  • Also, inform the technologist if you are pregnant or claustrophobic.

No full-body MRI scan is not a painless diagnostic test. In case you are claustrophobic, you might feel a little nervous and scared. Also, the machine makes high-volume sounds which may affect your peace of mind. There will be a slight warmth in the area that is being examined but it is very much normal. When you are administered an injection for the test, you may feel a cooling enation on the site and a slight pain associated with the injection, like any other.
