WIDE BORE MRI

Wide Bore MRI

Our Wide Bore MRI has a much larger opening than old MRIs and is also much shorter in length.

How do I prepare for my Wide Bore MRI?

No special preparation is necessary before your exam. You may eat and drink as you normally do. We advise you to dress in clothes that are metal-free (no zippers, brass buttons, etc) for your exam, but we can also provide you with a dressing gown.  Individual dressing rooms are available for your privacy, and all metal objects, including coins and watches, will be kept safely in a locker.

What's the Wide Bore MRI like?

The MRI contains a padded bed on which you will lie during the exam. A technologist will be in continual voice and visual contact with you. For certain exams, you may notice that your upper or lower body is outside of the machine. Exams normally last 30 minutes.

You will hear a knocking sound during the exam. Music of your choice can be played through headphones. We have XM radio or you are welcome to bring your own CD.

Information about your examination

  • Prior to the exam you will be asked to remove all jewelry and metal objects.
  • Your hair must be dry before you go in the scanner.
  • During the exam, just like a photograph, the most accurate images will be taken when you are still.
  • Immediately following the scan, you may resume your normal activities unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
