What is MRI?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique that allows you to capture images or pictures of the inner part of a human’s body or anatomy without the use of radiation (x-rays).

The scanner of an MRI machine uses a powerful magnet and electricity to capture images of body tissues. MRI is useful for taking pictures of different parts of the body, which includes the spine, brain, head, chest, abdomen, arms, pelvis, and legs.

Some MRI diagnostics may require a contrast substance to be injected into the vein in order to improve the image. Contrast, is a substance used to observe a problem better. Such problems include the area of inflammation, or to take pictures of the bloodstream. When a contrast study is requested, the person who wants to undergo the scan will be asked to put on a hospital gown and paper shorts, and also take off all his or her clothing, including the underwear. The MRI specialist will also ensure that you remove all metal objects you might have in your possession (this include keys, coin, jewelry, glasses, headphones etc), this is because the scanner has a powerful magnet. If you are wearing an artificial hair, you will be asked to remove it as well.

I guess these information are useful like I said earlier. So, let us now move to the main aim of this article.
