What Is an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It’s a big machine that doctors use to look inside your body without surgery!

Why do people get MRIs?

Doctors use it to find out if there's anything wrong inside your body, like a broken bone or a sick part that needs attention.

Sounds Like Magic, Right?

It's very useful, but sometimes it can have a few downsides. Let's explore what those are!

The MRI machine is a tight space. Some people feel a little scared or uncomfortable because it's so close in there.

Feeling a Bit Squeezed

MRIs make loud noises that can sound like knocking. This can be quite surprising and a little scary if you're not ready for it.

Noisy Neighbor

Allergy Alert

Sometimes, doctors use a special dye to see better images. A few people might feel sick from the dye if they're allergic to it.

Metal is a No-Go!

If you have metal like braces or some implants, it can be a problem because MRI uses strong magnets.

Takes a Lot of Time

An MRI scan can take a while—sometimes up to an hour. You have to stay very still the whole time!

After the scan, you might have to wait for the doctor to look at the images and tell you all is okay.
