Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI uses a magnetic field to acquire cross sectional images of your anatomy. Unlike conventional radiography and Computed Tomographic (CT) imaging, which make use of radiation (X-rays), MRI imaging is based on the magnetic properties of atoms. Several sets of images are usually required, each one ranging in duration from 2 to 8 minutes.
During the scan it is important that you remain very still so the images are as clear as possible. A complete scan may take from 20 minutes to one hour. The radiographer performing the scan will explain the length of scan and answer any questions prior to entering the scan room. The scanner in the Limerick Clinic is a modern scanner and is smaller in length to the older scanners. Music can be played during your scan to help eliminate the inherent banging noise emitted by the machine while your scan is taking place.
