1What Is MRI?
MRI is a way of looking inside the body without X-rays. The exam uses radio waves and a magnetic field to create images of the soft tissues of the body. Unlike X-rays and CT, our MRI systems do not use radiation to obtain a scan.
2How Long Will the Exam Take?
Most exams take about 30 minutes to complete.
3Will I Feel Anything?
No. There is no pain, vibration, or unusual sensation. The MRI will produce a mild tapping sound during the exam.
4What Do I Need to Do During the Exam?
Nothing! Just lie on the table and relax.
5How Is the MRI Performed?
You will be asked to lie on a comfortable table and the technologist will position you. The table will then be moved toward the magnet opening and only the portion of your body being imaged will be within the magnet. You will be asked to remain still during the examination.
6What If I Have More Questions?
Your physician or MRI technologist will answer any questions you may have.
7How Should I Prepare for My MRI Exam?

You can eat, drink, and take regularly prescribed medications prior to the exam. If you will be having a leg exam, you can bring some shorts to wear. Otherwise, you may be asked to change into a hospital gown to avoid any possibility of interference from metal in zippers and fasteners.

You will be asked to remove your watch, credit cards, jewellery, keys, pocketknife, hearing aid, or any other metal objects before approaching the MRI.

The magnet could affect the items of this type, or the items could affect the magnet.

An ultrasound scan imaging test utilises high-intensity sound waves to look inside your body. Other terms for ultrasounds include ultrasonography or sonography. The sound waves create real-time videos or pictures of soft tissues or internal organs.

An ultrasound lets your healthcare provider see details of your internal organs without incisions. They differ from x-rays, which use radiation to see inside the body.

When you get an ultrasound, your healthcare provider will pass a probe or transducer inside of a body opening or over your body. Before they do that, they’ll apply gel to your skin. The gel enables the ultrasound waves transmitted from the device to enter your body.

As the device sends sound waves into your body, they bounce off various soft tissues and internal organs. The sound waves return to the device, converting them into electrical signals.

  • Kidney ultrasound
  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Transvaginal ultrasound
