How Fast Can an MRI See What's Inside You?

What is an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's a large machine that doctors use to look inside your body!

How Does an MRI Work?

It uses strong magnets and radio waves to take pictures of your insides.

Preparing for an MRI

You might wear a hospital gown and remove metal objects because they can interfere with the magnets.

Entering the MRI Machine

You lie down on a sliding table that goes into a tunnel-like space.

The technician operates the machine from another room, and you can talk to them through a microphone.

Starting the MRI

It can take anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour, depending on what's being checked.

How Long Does It Take?

Why Stay Still?

It’s very important to stay still while the pictures are being taken to make sure they come out clear.

Fast and Informative

MRI can quickly give doctors detailed pictures to help diagnose and treat health issues.

MRIs are safe and don’t use radiation, making them a good choice for seeing inside your body.
