IMAGING: MRI
COMMON QUESTIONS
Q.
What about radiation?
A.
There is no radiation exposure associated with an MRI.
Q.
I’ve heard that an MRI can be very claustrophobic, especially for larger people. Is that correct?
A.
Some patients feel claustrophobic in standard MRI scanners. Our Siemens 3T MRI is designed to accommodate larger patients and to minimize claustrophobia for people of all sizes. (Our Open scanner is also a great option for those who are very claustrophobic and unable to use the 3T.)
