An Introduction to MRI Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a procedure that uses strong magnetic fields to produce images of the inside of your body. During an MRI, you lie inside a tube-shape device called a magnet or scanner, which produces radio waves and a very strong magnetic field. These radio waves cause hydrogen atoms within your body to move slightly and generate small electric currents in nearby tissues. Sensors detect these currents and create images base on how they vary with respect to time. Because of its ability to image soft tissue without using radiation, MRI has become one of most important diagnostic tools available today.

How Does an MRI Machine Work?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive, painless medical test use to evaluate internal structures of your body. Image quality is better than for traditional X-rays. One of the reasons for better image quality is that no ionizing radiation (X-rays) are use during an MRI procedure. Instead, magnetic fields and radio waves are use to produce detail images of organs and structures within your body. An MRI can also provide unique information about organ function and many other aspects of health as well.

What Is Magnetic Resonance Imaging Use For?

There are a number of uses for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRIs use magnetism, radio waves and a computer to produce detail images of areas inside your body. The procedure is noninvasive, and you may have it done on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home after having it perform. Some common uses for an MRI include

Scanning Protocol for PROSTA (Prostate) Scanning

For those with a history of rectal or prostate cancer, or for those who have had radiation therapy to your pelvis, we will recommend a lower field strength magnet and use an endorectal coil. The goal is to avoid any saturation of these tumors and keep them in a safe range. If any doubts, please mention it at time of registration as it may delay scanning process.

How Can I Schedule an Appointment?

At our imaging center, we offer three different MRIs: standard MRI, multiplex rapid acquisition with relaxation enhancement (MR-RAIR), and endorectal prostate MRI. All three types of exams can produce 3D images that help our radiologists detect a range of problems in different areas of your body. If you’re interest in scheduling a prostate cancer screening, talk to one of our technicians or call us at 505-989-1117 to schedule an appointment today.

What If My Insurance Doesn’t Cover An MRI?

If you have health insurance, it’s possible that your insurance company won’t cover an MRI. That’s because MRIs are typically use as a last resort. When other imaging tests (like CT and X-rays) don’t detect a problem. In fact, many people who receive MRIs pay out of pocket because they want answers—not necessarily to be reimburse by their insurance company.

Before Your Exam

Your doctor will probably order an ultrasound test or a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test to determine whether you need an MRI. If your prostate is found to be enlarge or if you have signs of BPH, you may need an MRI scan.The National Institutes of Health (NIH) provides further information on possible risks. Side effects and complications associate with prostate MRIs. The NIH recommends that patients undergoing a magnetic resonance imaging scan receive an injection of gadolinium contrast prior to their appointment in order to improve image quality. This is why your doctor may order blood tests before scheduling your exam. Be sure to tell your doctor about any medications you’re taking before your exam. As they can affect results and cause adverse reactions.

During Your Exam

Your doctor will insert a probe into your rectum to scan for prostate cancer. The device looks somewhat like a large flashlight and includes a wire that’s insert into your rectum. You will lie on your side with your feet pointing towards one corner of the room. And rest in that position while an imaging sequence is complete. The process typically takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour and you may need an enema prior to having your exam. Despite some pre-screening questions, you may not know whether or not you’re schedule for an MRI until right before it happens—these exams are often scheduled on short notice to accommodate emergency or non-emergency cases as need.

After Your Exam

After you’ve completed your imaging exam, your physician will review and analyze your results with you. If there are any issues that may require immediate attention, they’ll be discussed at that time. Generally speaking, however, it’s a good idea to wait 24 hours after an exam before making major decisions about treatment options or scheduling further appointments. It can take some time to understand how all of your imaging results fit together and whether they indicate a serious health concern. During that period, we encourage you to sit back and relax; get plenty of rest; stay hydrated; eat well; enjoy life! You will be hearing from us soon if there is something for you to do next.
