MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance. MRI uses a very powerful magnetic field and radio waves to see into the body. No X-rays are used and it is therefore safe to be scanned. An MRI scan is very noisy, and you will therefore be offered hearing protection and / or earplugs. It will be possible to listen to music and watch "movies" while being scanned.
An MRI scan takes between 15-45 min.
MRI scan is best for seeing soft tissues, such as the brain and internal organs. MRI is also absolutely great for seeing small structures in joints and the back.
Progardia has a state-of-the-art 3 Tesla MR scanner (60,000 times more powerful than Earth's magnetic field).
We offer MRI examinations of:
- Full body with focus area
- Body parts/organs
Exceptions for MRI scan

- Has a pacemaker
- Has a neurostimulator
- Has a vascular clip on a vein in the brain that was inserted before the year 2000
- Is pregnant in the first trimester
- Unable to lie still during scanning
