Can You Talk During an MRI?

Usually, you can't talk to the doctor while inside the MRI machine. It's noisy inside, and the machine needs quiet to take good pictures.

Can You Move During an MRI?

Use a special button to talk to the doctor if needed.

What if You Have Questions?

Before the MRI, the doctor or nurse will talk to you and answer all your questions. You can also use a buzzer to talk to them if you need to.

How Long Does an MRI Take?

MRI scans usually take around 15 to 60 minutes. It depends on what part of your body the doctor is looking at.

The MRI machine makes loud banging and thumping sounds. Talking can make it hard for the doctor to hear the sounds of your body.

Why Can't You Talk?

It's normal to feel nervous, but try to stay calm. Think about something fun or close your eyes and imagine a peaceful place.

Staying Calm

Keeping Still

Staying still is super important! Even moving a little bit can make the pictures blurry, and then the doctor might not see everything clearly.

What Happens After?

Once the scan is done, you can talk to the doctor about how everything went and ask any questions you might have.

MRI machines help doctors see inside your body to make sure everything is okay. Remember, it's important to stay still during the scan!
