In addition to delivering a pleasant, safe and comfortable patient experience, we have well-trained radiologists to read and interpret test results. They are experienced, board-certified and fellowship-trained. And they look forward to helping you five days a week.


To prepare for a MRI scan, we ask that you follow the following guidelines:

  • For a regular MRI exam, you can eat and drink as normal.
  • You may take all prescribed medications.
  • Please do not wear any item that is metal – including watches, hair pins, hearing aids, eyeglasses and jewelry.
  • It is important to also inform us if you have metal implants or objects such as insulin pump implants, metal fillings, TENS units, pacemaker, vascular clips, etc.


Bring your photo ID and wear comfortable clothing that doesn’t contain metal buttons, snaps or zippers


  • You should arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
  • If you must cancel or reschedule, please advise at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.


  • After registering, you will be given forms to complete.
  • The MRI technologist will then review your medical history with you and explain what will happen during the procedure.
  • During the procedure, you will be asked to lay still and not to move as any movement can cause blurring on the image.
  • You will hear a loud knocking sound and feel some vibration, which is normal.
  • Depending on the type of MRI scan, the procedure can take approximately 25 to 45 minutes.

1What is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)?
MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, is a means of "seeing" inside of the body in order for doctors to find certain diseases or abnormal conditions. MRI does not rely on the type of radiation (i.e., ionizing radiation) used for an x-ray or computed tomography (CT) scan. The MRI examination requires specialized equipment that uses a powerful, constant magnetic field, rapidly changing local magnetic fields, radiofrequency energy, and dedicated equipment including a powerful computer to create very clear pictures of internal body structures.
2Will I be exposed to radiation during an MRI?
No. Unlike traditional x-ray and CT scans, MRI does not use ionizing radiation. The MRI creates detailed images of the body using magnet and sound waves. MRI provides good contrast between the different soft tissues of the body, which makes it especially useful in imaging the brain, muscles, and cancers compared to other medical imaging techniques.
3Is MRI safe for everyone?
Although MRI is an effective diagnostic tool, certain medical conditions will prevent individuals from having an MRI. If you have any of the following conditions or devices we will not be able to perform an MRI:
• Pacemaker
• Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)
• Cochlear Ear Implant
• Metal fragments in one or both eyes
• Certain Aneurysm Clips
• Other certain electrical or magnetic activated implants
• Pregnancy

It is very important if you are pregnant or if there is a possibility that you may be pregnant or if you are breastfeeding, that you inform you’re referring physician and our staff prior to your MRI appointment. If you have any of these conditions or devices, please let our scheduling staff know at the time of scheduling. Your referring physician and our radiologists will determine if you can be safely scanned or may recommend an alternative imaging procedure that can be safely performed with your condition or device.
