Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the safest and most accurate imaging techniques available. It combines a powerful magnet with sophisticated computer technology and radio waves to produce detailed pictures of organs and soft tissues to diagnose a variety of medical conditions.
The MRI suites at CDC/CDC Northside are naturally lit and spacious. We offer a variety of patient comfort features including CinemaVision, headphones for movies, music, eye pillows or sleep masks, and a two-way communication system to speak with the technologist at anytime during the process.
Keep in mind that you will be wearing headphones to block out much of the noise that you can hear in the sample sound file. If it makes you more comfortable, you are invited to bring your favorite CD to listen to during the exam.
