What to expect during an MRI
Before the Exam
No special preparation is required prior to the MRI exam. Prior to entering the scan room, you will be asked to leave items not compatible with a magnetic field in a safe place outside the scan room. You may also be asked to wear a hospital gown to avoid magnetic interference from belt buckles and zippers.
During the Exam
Lay down on the table and the technologist will position you. He/she will keep in close contact with you via intercom and observe you in an outside room. While the scanner is operating, you will experience normal humming and thumping sound form the scanner. The majority of MIR scans take 30-45 minutes.
After the Exam
Once the examination is over, the pictures taken by the MRI scanner will be interpreted by a board-certified radiologist, and the results sent to your doctor who ordered the MRI.
