MRI

  • MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. An MRI makes very clear images of the human body without using x-rays. While x-rays take an image of dense structures like bones, the MRI scanner takes images of soft tissues in joints (wrists or knees, for example).
  • The MRI scanner is a large doughnut-shaped machine that uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to make accurate cross-sectional images, or “slices”, of a body part. The MRI scanner does not use radiation, has no known side effects or risks and is considered safe for both children and adults.
  • You should not have any metal objects on your body (earrings, watches, etc), as the MRI produces powerful magnetic forces which attracts iron-containing objects, which may cause them to move suddenly and fly through the air toward the centre of the magnet.
