Patient safety tips prior to the procedure

Because of the strong magnetic field used during the exam, certain conditions may prevent you from having a MR procedure. When scheduling your appointment and prior to your exam, please alert our staff and technologist to the following conditions that may apply to you. The radiology staff will let then let you know whether you can have the MRI exam and whether the exam needs to be modified for your particular condition.
•    Pacemaker
•    Pregnancy
•    Claustrophobia
•    History of kidney problems
•    Skin tattoos
•    Neurostimulators
•    Implanted drug infusion device (i.e., insulin pump)
•    Exposure of metal fragments to your eye
•    Artificial heart valves
•    Aneurysm clips
•    Cochlear implants
•    Metallic implants and prosthesis
•    Vascular stent or stent graft
•    History as a metal worker
•    Shrapnel or bullet wounds
•    Dorsal column stimulators
•    Allergy to gadolinium
•    Other conditions you believe to be relevant

Other Tips

•    Please leave your valuables at home, including jewelry, to prevent it from being lost or stolen, for they have to be removed prior to entering the scan room.
•    If you experience anxiety related to claustrophobia, your doctor may prescribe an oral medication for you to take with you for your MRI appointment.

What can I expect before my MRI exam?

There is little preparation for an MRI exam. Take your daily medications as you normally would, unless instructed otherwise. There are few dietary restrictions for an MRI. For those exams, you will be notified of the requirements.
•    Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your exam. You will need to complete the MRI screening form.
•    A technologist will verify your identification and the requested exam. Your screening form will be reviewed by the technologist in consultation with the radiologist if indicated. If MRI contrast is indicated for the exam, an IV catheter will be inserted in your arm by a technologist or doctor.
•    Come to the examination with a request (voucher for the examination), which must be signed and stamped by the indicating doctor.

What can I expect during my MRI scan?

•    The duration of the procedure will vary but the average is 30 minutes to one hour per body part.
•    You will be required to lie still during the actual MR scanning. Depending on the body part that is being examined, you may be instructed to hold your breath for up to 20 seconds.
•    The magnet is permanently open on both ends. It is well lit and there is a fan for patient comfort. There is also a two way intercom system for communication between patient and technologist. The part of the body being scanned will be placed in the middle of the magnet.
•    During the actual imaging, you will hear a loud intermittent banging noise. You will be provided with earplugs or head phones to minimize the noise during the procedure.
•    The technologist will also provide you with an alarm button to alert the technologist of any discomfort you may experience at any point during the MRI exam.
•    Some MRI exams require an injection of intravenous MRI contrast. Inform the technologist if you experience any discomfort during the injection.

What can I expect after my MRI scan?

•    If a dye injection is used, the IV is removed from the arm before you go home.
•    Allergic reaction from gadolinium dye is extremely rare. However, if you experience symptoms such as rash, hives, or shortness of breath, you should notify the technologist immediately if you are still at the imaging facility, or call your doctor or go to the nearest hospital if you have already left the imaging facility.

For most MRI examinations, preparation is not necessary. Before the examination, it is necessary to put away all removable metal objects such as watches, earrings and piercings - earrings, bracelets and more.

MR Enterography (also known as MRI of the small bowel) is an imaging exam that lets doctors look at problems in the structure of the small bowel or problems with how it is working. To prepare for your MR Enterography, don’t eat or drink anything beginning 6 hours before your scheduled exam. It is ok to have a small sip of water with any medications you need to take. Arrive at the MRI Department 90 minutes before the time your exam is scheduled for. When you arrive, the MRI staff will give you an oral contrast agent to drink, along with some water. The contrast agent fills your belly with fluid that helps make the pictures of your small bowel clearer. You may use the restroom prior to your exam.
