How Long Does a Full Body MRI Take?

What's an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's like a giant camera that looks inside your body!

Why a Full Body MRI?

Doctors use a full body MRI to check if everything is okay inside your body, from head to toe!

Getting Ready

Before the scan, you'll wear a special gown and remove all metal objects like coins and jewelry.

The MRI Room

The MRI machine is a large tube that's open at both ends. You lie down on a movable bed.

Once you're inside, the machine will start taking pictures. It's very important to stay still!

Inside the Machine

You'll hear loud knocking sounds. Don't worry, that's just the machine working.

The Sounds

Time to Scan

A full body MRI can take about 60 minutes. Sometimes, it can be quicker or a bit longer.

What Happens Inside?

The machine uses a big magnet and radio waves to get clear pictures of your inside.

When it's done, the bed will slide out, and you can go back to your day!
