MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING 

 

General information

 

Prior to the MRI all metal objects must be left in a locker outside the room (e.g. wallet, watch, jewellery etc.) Also hearing aid, contact lenses, continuous glucose monitoring system and prosthetic teeth have to be removed. Please try to avoid wearing makeup and false eyelashes/eyelash jewellery. It may be necessary to inject contrast media in your blood circulation, generally it doesn’t cause any side effects. The duration of the procedure and preparation is approximately 30-60 minutes. Body temperature must be below 38 °C due to possible temperature increase while scanning.

Please notice there may be a delay with our appointments due to acute patients being examined at our unit.

If you will be late for your appointment, please contact the MRI staff on tel. 014-269 3682.

A 50,80€ fee will be charged of an uncancelled appointment.
