What Happens During the Exam?

The procedure typically will last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the type of information required by your physician.

Once you are situated on the table, make sure you are comfortable so that it is easy to keep still. Breathe normally. A special coil will be attached to the area of your body being examined. A faint knocking sound will be heard, which is simply the imaging process in operation. You just need to be as still as possible during the exam. Once the exam is over, the technologist will assist you out of the scan room.

Our technologist will be able to see you at all times. For your convenience, an intercom system is built into the magnet so that if you need anything, the technologist will be right there. You may also arrange with our receptionist to have a close friend or family member sit with you during the exam. Music is also available for you to enjoy.
