What is Magnetic Resonance Imaging?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, MR or MRI is an advanced imaging method that produces images of the body without surgery or x-rays. Magnetic Resonance Imaging utilizes the forces of magnetism and radio waves to create images or pictures of the human body.

You are placed in a strong magnetic field, which causes the hydrogen atoms in your body to align in a positive position to receive radio signals. Your body then transmits signals of its own which are collected and processed by a computer then transformed into the images that our radiologist will read.

The G-scan Brio is a revolutionary MRI approach for all musculoskeletal applications, which increases diagnostic accuracy and confidence. The open and tilting design is the new and innovative way of doing MRI in which the position of the patient becomes an integral part of the outcome of the examination. The G-Scan Brio is equipped to image the brain and spine. This innovative machine is now available at Clermont Radiology Ocala.

The system’s open magnet design is ideal for claustrophobic and obese patients, creating a non-restrictive, quiet, and comfortable imaging experience. The scanner can accommodate patients up to 440 pounds.

Weight-bearing studies allow patients to be imaged in the position in which they experience symptoms and provide documentation that can be critical for surgeries and treatment. MR imaging in the natural standing position allows you to obtain extra details which would not normally be seen.

Tell the technologist if any of the following pertain to you:

  • You have a pacemaker

  • History of working with metal

  • Brain aneurysm clips

  • History of injury during Military service

  • Metallic plates or other implants

  • Nursing or chance you could be pregnant

What should I expect?

Our technologist will help position you in the scanner. An imaging device called a "coil" will be placed around the area of the body to be scanned. You will be scanned in a natural standing position or lying down flat on your back.

 

Please Note: Our Esaote G-Scan Brio unit can accommodate patients up to 440 pounds.

 

In some cases, you will need contrast material to further aid in detection or diagnosis of potential abnormalities. In this instance, an I.V. will be placed in your hand or arm.

 

As images are acquired, you will hear a series of "knocking and buzzing noises" for a few minutes at a time. It is important to remain as still as possible during this part of the exam to help us capture clear images. Our technologist will be able to see and hear you. They will talk you through every stage of the exam.
