What To Expect
Wear comfortable clothing without any metal zippers, snaps or buttons. Patient gowns are available if you do not have this type of clothing. Leave jewelry, watches, hair clips and belt buckles at home. Patient lockers are available.
MEDICAL HISTORIES are obtained to fully understand the condition of the patient and to rule out any metal or foreign bodies that may be in the patients body. Blood lab results may be necessary for patients that are receiving contrast and who have kidney disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. These blood tests can be performed on-site for those patients that may require them before scanning. Typically, there are NO preparations or dieting for an MRI scan, although abdominal and pelvis scans may require some preparation.
We have "4" locations to serve you. Three of them are conveniently located throughout Metropolitan Detroit: Allen Park, Madison Heights and Port Huron Our fourth location is in Toledo, Ohio.
The entire Technical staff performing your MRI scans are registered in MR Imaging and one or more other Radiology categories.
Our Radiologists (Physicians interpreting your MRI) are all Board Certified, specializing in Neuro, Orthopedics, Breast and Musculoskeletal Radiology.
Together our team of Physicians and technologists possess many years of expertise.
SEDATION is provided to patients who are claustrophobic and/or are in need of pain management by our full time nursing staff of Board Certified Registered Nurses.
These nurses provide both oral and/or inter-muscular (IM) injection sedation prior to the MRI scan. This will allow for patients to be relaxed and comfortable during their scan and assure quality control of the images that are performed. The nursing staff is readily available to take medical histories on all referred patients. A licensed driver must accompany patients that receive sedation to ensure that they return home safely after completion of their study.
