Safe & Accurate High-Precision MRI Scan

A popular diagnostic procedure using world-class technologies to identify abnormalities of the important body parts and internal organs.

What is an MRI?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is a medical diagnostic test known by other terms such as Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (NMRI). As its name implies, the MRI scan is powered by strong magnetic fields, field gradients, and radio waves to take clear images of the internal body structures. These images help in detecting health issues and abnormalities in the spinal cord, nerves, and brain.

At Krishna Scan, our MRI unit can obtain high-precision images of any body part from any angle or plane. Our MRI techniques are absolutely safe from ionising radiation and other biological hazards.

Our non-invasive MRI scan delivers high-resolution isotropic 3D images with excellent soft-tissue contrast. Krishna Scan is the preferred choice of doctors and patients for clear and dynamic imaging of human anatomy.

Krishna Scan is the most reliable diagnostic facility for a diverse range of diagnostic procedures. Our centre boasts state-of-the-art MRI machines powered by cutting-edge technology to ensure safe and reliable imaging procedures.

If you have booked your appointment for an MRI scan, you should follow the given instructions and guidelines to prepare for the test.

  • Before the scan, you may be asked to follow certain diet restrictions, if necessary.
  • You must remove all pieces of jewellery, dentures, hearing aids, watches, and spectacles before the procedure.
  • When the procedure commences, you will be asked to lie flat on a movable table that slides into a circular tube-like structure.
  • The lab staff will position you and provide you with earplugs to mute the repetitive tapping sound produced by the MRI machine.
  • A contrast material will be injected into your arm via an IV catheter to take contrast images if prescribed.
  • You should remain still throughout the procedure to avoid blurred and unclear images.

1. Is MRI scan a safe diagnostic procedure?

Yes, it is a perfectly safe procedure. The scan is harmless as it does not use any ionising radiation or other biological hazards. Moreover, it is a painless and non-invasive procedure when no contrast injections are used. Even with contrast material, the pain is very minimal.

2. What medical conditions are not ideal for a MRI scan?

MRI scans are not suitable for patients with:

  • An implant such as a cochlear implant
  • Some types of coils placed in blood vessels
  • Pacemakers and all types of defibrillators
  • Some clips used for brain aneurysms

3. How long will a MRI scan last?

An MRI scan can last from fifteen minutes to an hour or more. The duration depends on the size of the body part that's being imaged and the number of images required. The procedure may last longer if the patient requires anaesthetic.

4. For whom is a MRI scan not advisable?

MRI scan is a safe procedure. However, it is not recommended for pregnant women and those with implants such as pacemakers and clips for brain aneurysms. Nursing mothers should inform our staff before the procedure. People who have claustrophobia are bound to find the process uncomfortable.

5. Does a MRI scan have side effects?

Most people do not experience any side effects after or during the scan. However, some people may have a mild reaction to the contrast medium. It may cause nausea, headache, dizziness, and a metallic taste in the mouth. There may also be some pain at the injection site. If you require sedation or general anaesthesia during the procedure, you may talk to our doctors about the possible side effects.

6. Can I communicate during the procedure?

You may talk to our technologist or lab staff at various times throughout the examination. However, it is essential to remain still until the procedure is over.
