Abstract
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. An MRI machine uses a powerful magnet, radio waves, and a computer. It does not use radiation or X-rays. The MRI machine takes detailed images that show tissues in your body. These images will help your primary health care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner) or specialist diagnose your condition. An MRI does not hurt. This pamphlet explains how long an MRI takes, how to get ready for your MRI, what to bring to your appointment, and what will happen during and after the MRI. Information about children and pregnant people is included. A list of things to tell the technologist about (like if you have a pacemaker or an implanted defibrillator, aneurysm clips, etc.) is given. The French version of this pamphlet 1960, "Imagerie par résonance magnétique (IRM)", is also available.
