These are all the patients forms that are needed if you would like to do them ahead of time. This allows you to save time when arriving for your appointment. If you would like to do so please fill out the MRI Screening, MRI Registration, and the MRI Exam you are wanting.
Forms For Different Types Of MRI's:
Our MRI machine has an open design to make patients as comfortable as possible. Our technologists are experienced and caring and will talk you through the exam and make sure you are as comfortable as possible. We can also provide headphones and you always have the option to hit a a call button if you need anything.
MRI’s can take between 15 to 25 minutes depending on the area being scanned and based on the number of images being taken. When you schedule with us we can inform you of how long your scan will take.
An IV is only needed if the MRI is ordered with an IV contrast which is needed if the radiologist recommends it or if there is a clinical indication for it. Otherwise the only other time is if a patient is getting an IV sedation because of anxiety with an MRI Scan.
Before your MRI appointment, you can follow your daily routine and meal plan as normal and take prescribed medication. Make sure all metal is removed from the body. This includes piercing, jewelry, etc. The MRI technologist will show you to a private changing room that contains a secure locker so you personal belongings are kept safe. You will be given a pair of shorts and a tee shirt so that you will be covered and comfortable.
In most cases patients with metal implants such as hip or knee replacements can get an MRI. However, if a patient has metal clips or a pacemaker then they can’t receive an MRI. Our team will be sure to evaluate you before your MRI and you can always give us a call if you have questions.
