Are you getting an MRI? MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) systems allow medical professionals to see inside the body with outstanding clarity. With MRI images, physicians can rule out problems, identify areas for treatment, and track progress with greater speed and accuracy than ever before. The scan does not involve surgery, radiation, hospitalization or side effects.
Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions, such as whether or not you can eat beforehand.
Please be aware that MRI technology is sensitive to metal. You will be asked to remove any metal before the test, including jewelry, clips and pins.
MRI is available at all UMass Memorial community hospitals. For patients who are claustrophobic or are unable to be comfortably accommodated with a high-field MRI system, UMass Memorial also offers an "open air" MRI system at the 214 Shrewsbury Street location in Worcester.
