Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a painless test that can provide clear images of body parts not seen as well with other imaging tests. A powerful magnet, radio waves and a computer work in tandem to allow technicians to see 2D or 3D images of your body.

At Inspira, our wide bore MRI scanners are used to detect a variety of conditions, including those in the abdomen, brain, upper or lower extremities and spine. An MRI procedure takes about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the images needed.

Prior to the exam, an Inspira MRI technologist will explain the procedure to you and answer any questions you may have. You’ll be asked a series of questions about past medical procedures that may be a potential risk for entering the magnetic environment. When scheduling your MRI appointment, identify if you have any of the following:

  • Any internal electronic device
  • Artificial heart valve or stents
  • Artificial joints or metal rods
  • Cardiac pacemaker
  • Embedded shrapnel or metal fragments
  • Hearing aid or implant
  • Intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Medical surgical clips or aneurysm clips
  • Neurostimulators
  • Shunts
