MRI scans

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. 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).

Exceptions for MRI scan

Although an MRI scan is harmless, there are a few situations where you cannot be scanned:

If you:

  • Have a pacemaker
  • Have a neurostimulator
  • Have a vascular clip on a vein in the brain that was inserted before the year 2000
  • Are pregnant in the first trimester
  • Are unable to lie still during scanning
  • Have severe claustrophobia. In mild claustrophobia, a sedative pill may be offered before the examination.
