Without further ado, our MRI unit is now live. The magnet is ON!
At Advanced Urgent Care Marathon, our MRI machine can provide data on the following areas of your body:
IS MRI SAFE?
To date, there are no known adverse side effects of MRI. The scanner has full approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). MRI images are produced using magnetic field and radio waves unlike X-ray equipment that uses radiation to obtain images. The MRI scanning delivered at our office is generally painless and causes little or no discomfort to patients.
WHAT DO I DO DURING AN MRI?
MRIs usually take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to perform, depending upon the area being scanned. During this time, patients will lie on a padded table, and will be placed inside the core of the MRI. It is critical that patients remain completely motionless once inside in order for the machine to capture accurate imagery.
WHEN DO I GET MY RESULTS?
MRI studies will be interpreted by a Board Certified Radiologist within 24-48 hours. The assessment will be relayed to your referring physician and/or to you via your Patient Portal.
