Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) service.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is a medical imaging technique that uses computer-generated radio waves to stimulate the intended organ needed to be examined and to measure hydrogen energy levels within the body which is also known as resonance. Then it is generated into an image and is more detailed than a CT scan because it can identify the different types of tissues, enable multiple planes, create 3D images and can be used to detect all systems of the body especially in the brain. For example when checking for tumors in the brain, the nervous system or the spine. There are more specific techniques for patients with an acute ischemic stroke, analyzing biochemistry levels to determine lump types or checking blood vessels throughout the body etc.

Preparation prior to the procedure.

1. No water and food for 6-hours before the procedure for patients doing an upper abdominal examination (Liver + <R Elastography), duct and gallbladder examination (MRCP), Cardiovascular Stress Monitor (MRI) and pediatric patients requiring Anesthesia.

2. If the patient falls into one of the following categories, please inform the staff when making an appointment or immediately before the examination.

3. Patients must have kidney function results (Creatinine) before the examination no more than 3 months old.

4. Patients should avoid bringing metals such as jewelry, electronic devices, mobile phones, watches, credit cards, key chains, coins, or other metal things which may have been ingested into the radiation examination room. Ladies should wipe off cosmetics before entering the examination room, especially eye shadow and mascara because they contain metal.
