As rightly said by our ancestors, “Health is Wealth”, we all need to focus on our physical and emotional well-being from time to time. Panchvati Diagnostic Center was established around 15 years with a mission of giving back reliable diagnostic services to the society.
It has been on a growing trend ever since. The entire team of Panchvati diagnostic center strives for perfection and provides the highest level of diagnostic care to patients. The reliability and authenticity of the quality of work done is borne out by the fact that doctors and their families usually prefer to get their own scans/laboratory tests done at our center.
What is an MRI scan?
MRI is a routine diagnostic imaging exam that uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to produce 2- and 3-dimensional images of the body’s organs, tissues and bones. Most MRI machines are a large, tube-shaped magnet that provide a strong magnetic field around your child. A radiofrequency coil is placed over the body part that is to be imaged. The magnetic field, along with applied radiofrequency waves, temporarily alters the alignment of hydrogen protons found in water molecules within the body. Computers construct the images based on the radiofrequency signals emitted by the protons.
MRI is often preferred over other imaging techniques because it does not use ionizing radiation (x-rays). It’s a way to better evaluate various parts of the body and certain diseases that may not be assessed adequately with other imaging technologies, and it’s painless and safe.
An MRI is interpreted by a pediatric radiologist or pediatric neuroradiologist, and the results are reported to your child’s physician.
How should I prepare for an MRI?
If your child is receiving general anesthesia, you will get a call from an assessment nurse before your appointment to review your child’s health history.
Ask a member of your health care team how to prepare for the MRI if your child has any surgical metal implants (you will need to get MRI safety documents and bring them to the test).
For patients who are NOT receiving anesthesia, one parent/guardian can stay in the room during the MRI.
For patients who ARE receiving anesthesia, one parent/guardian may be able to stay in the room while the anesthesiologist gives your child the general anesthesia. After that, you must leave the room before the MRI starts.
If you are pregnant, you cannot be in the MRI room with your child.
Explain in easy-to-understand terms what this test is and why it is being done (“We’re going to take pictures of your knee to see why it hurts”). Explain that your child will have to lie very still (“like a statue”) during the test so the doctor can get clear pictures.
Tell your child that:
- MRI scans can take anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes. The MRI team will give you a more specific timeframe on the day of the scan.
- They will change out of their clothing and into a hospital gown for the scan.
- The MRI machine makes loud banging and clicking noises during the scan, but it will not hurt them.
