Inside the MRI room you will see Philips Ingenia MR 3.0T CX, an MRI system created for your comfort. You will see a padded table and a large donut shaped device called the ‘gantry’. The larger opening space for the head in this machine is designed so for your comfort. The MRI technologist will help you lie down and give you headphones that will help the technologist stay in contact throughout the examination. You will be requested to lie still during the scan and hold your breath for a short time to minimize body movement. If the table moves during the scan do not worry. This is only for better imaging. The MRI technologist will consistently monitor you from the other side.
