Wide Open MRI

Exam Preparation

Preparations are based on the exam type and any special instructions will be given when making your appointment.  You may eat and take any medications needed as usual, except in the special case of sedation. If you suffer from claustrophobia, or the scan will be performed on a young child who cannot remain still, then sedation of various types may be used. Please bring such situations to the attention of your physician and the scheduling staff at Basha Diagnostics before scheduling the MRI procedure, as more detailed information will be provided to you.

What Should I Wear

Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing without zippers, snaps, or other metal parts, although in some cases a patient will be asked to change into a patient gown for the examination. You will also be asked to remove jewelry, dentures, bobby pins, makeup, credit cards, prostheses, wire support bras, or any other metal objects that might interfere with the magnetic field of the MRI scanner. 

What to expect

Before the exam begins, a technologist will ask you a series of questions about your medical history as well as the reasons why you are having the test.You will simply lie on your back on a special table that slides into the center of the circular magnet.  It is essential that you remain completely still during the scan, which can last anywhere from 15 minutes to 60 minutes per exam, depending on the type of MRI exam ordered by your physician.If you will be taking medication prescribed by your physician, or you will be undergoing sedation, please have someone else drive you to and from the facility or notify the scheduling staff at Basha – we may be able to provide free transportation to and from the appointment for you.

More Info

A magnetic resonance imaging exam (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to create images of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases, MRI provides detailed information that cannot be seen on an X-ray, ultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scan.
