WHAT IS MAGNETIC RESONANCE USED FOR?
MRI is a diagnostic test that does not use x-rays, but magnetic fields and radiofrequency waves. The images obtained by MRI are apparently similar to those of the CT scan, but they give different information. The equipment for this diagnostic test is distinguished in MRI
high-field (> 1 Tesla) and low-field NMR (<1 Tesla).
Preparation is required only if an MRI with a contrast method (MDC) is required, in this case the patient will have to go to the facility with the creatinine test carried out in the last 30 days and fasted for at least 6 hours.
The only possible risk during MRI is that of an allergic reaction to the substance used as a contrast agent.
Low-field MRI <1 Tesla (open machine) High-field MRI> 1 Tesla (closed machine)
