What happens if I move during an MRI?

What's an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's a big machine that takes detailed pictures of the inside of your body!

The Importance of Staying Still

The MRI needs you to stay super still to take clear pictures, just like a camera!

What if You Move?

If you move, the MRI might get blurry pictures, and it might be hard to see what’s inside.

Starting Over

Too much movement might mean the MRI needs to start over. That means more time in the machine!

Small twitches are okay sometimes—the MRI can handle little moves.

Small Movements

If you’re comfy, it’s easier to stay still. The technicians make sure you're snug and secure.

Comfort is Key

Practice Makes Perfect

Before starting, you can practice lying still, just like a statue game!

During the MRI

During the MRI, you can think of fun stories or count in your head to stay still.

Staying still helps get the best pictures! So, let's try to be as still as possible during an MRI.
