Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI uses waves and a strong magnetic field to produce clear and detailed pictures of the body, without the use of x-rays. It is a non-invasive way of viewing organs, soft tissues, bone and other internal body structures.

Common Uses of MRI:

  • Analysis of any part of the body including the brain, spine, joints, bones and soft tissues.
  • Diagnosis of small tears, injuries to tendons, ligaments, muscles and small fractures which cannot be seen on X-rays.
  • Diagnosis of degenerative disorders such as arthritis.
  • Analysis of damage to the spinal cord after trauma.
  • Diagnosis and analysis of infections and tumours of the nervous system, bones and joints.

Preparations for MRI:

  • No special preparation of food restriction is required except for MRI Abdomen, MRI Liver and MRCP, 4-6 hrs fasting is required before the examination.
  • Inform the staff if you have any existing medical conditions or electronic devices in your body.
  • Jewellery or any metal objects have to be removed prior to the MRI scan.
  • If you are claustrophobic, sedation may be required. Please highlight this when making an appointment.
  • A contrast medium may be administered to enhance the visibility of certain tissues or blood vessels. This is usually injected in the vein of your hand or arm.
