MRI Scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a radio imaging diagnostic procedure to create detailed images of soft organs and tissues within the body. The detailed MRI image helps doctors examine the issues associated with internal organs, blood vessels, muscles, joints, cartilage, tendons tumors, areas of infection etc. and make an accurate diagnosis. MRI is also known as MRA (Magnetic Resonance Angiography).The MRI Scanner or machine uses a powerful magnet and radio waves linked to a computer to create remarkably clear and detailed cross sectional images of the body. Kior Healthcare is one of the best MRI Imaging Center of Mohali, offers 1.5 Tesla MRI Scan at highly affordable and genuine rates, keeping in image quality. Our MRI Scan cost is priced to ensure that every individual can afford an MRI Test as and when required.
For most of the MRI Tests, you can stick with your normal, everyday routine. So, no special preparation is needed. You can eat and drink your usual diet, work, or play sports (unless you have an injury!) – and take any prescribed medications. However, there may be some circumstances in which you’ll be given specific instructions to follow before the exam. These will be given to you by your doctor, or by his/her representative.
Before entering the MRI Scan Room:MRI machines create a strong magnetic field around them, so all iron and steel objects are pulled towards it. To avoid all adverse actions – Remove all Metallic objects before entering the MRI room. Also, let your doctor know if you have any of the following objects implanted in your body.
- A pacemaker
- Aneurysm clips
- Cochlear implants
- A neuro-stimulator (Tens-unit)
- Metal implants
- Steel surgical staples or clips
- An implanted drug infusion device
- Any implant made partially or wholly of iron or steel
How is MRI Scan different from CT Scan & X- Ray Procedure?
MRI Scan is more advanced technology compared to CT Scan and X- Ray. It does not use potentially harmful ionizing radiation like CT scans and X-rays.
An MRI image provides more detailed information of internal body structure like the brain, reproductive system, skeletal system etc. and is used when X-ray and CT are not effective to diagnose the underlying issues in the body.
