What is Magnetic Resonance Imaging?
It is a harmless technique, based on a high magnetic field, which does not emit ionizing radiation, allowing us to study the structures that make up our body.
With this technique we can evaluate osteo-articular structures (bones, joints and muscles), band parts (abdomen and pelvis), vascular structures (through angioRM), heart functioning with functional studies, etc.
When you go for an MRI scan, the MRI technician will ask you to remove all metallic objects such as rings, earrings, necklaces, etc.
Since metallic objects cannot enter the MRI room, the technician will accompany you to a dressing room, where you will be provided with a gown and you will be able to leave all your belongings under lock and key while the scan is being performed.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is incompatible with patients with pacemakers (except those of the latest generation and providing a report from the cardiologist). Patients with cochlear implants or SAR devices cannot undergo this type of test either. Patients who use an insulin pump must disconnect it and leave it in the dressing room.
