What can I expect?
Because MRI Scans use an incredibly strong magnetic pull, technologists will ask you to change into a gown. They will also screen you for a variety of conditions, like pacemakers, skin tattoos, and artificial heart valves. The scan runs an average of 45 minutes, and you will need to lie still during that time. An MRI also emits a series of banging noises, so you’ll be provided with ear plugs. Specific instructions will be provided at the time of scheduling.
