Exam Duration

Most MRI patients should plan to spend 60 minutes at our facility. The length of appointment time will depend on the type of MRI exam your healthcare provider has ordered.
The technologist will help you onto the examination table and once comfortable, your test will begin.
During the exam, you will hear a loud, knocking noise as the machine takes the images. We provide earplugs and some facilities can play music through earphones to make this experience more relaxing.
Through the entire test, a certified technologist is nearby if you need assistance or have questions.

Results

Once the exam is complete, a radiologist will review the images and dictate a report. This report will be sent to the doctor who ordered your study.
Results are available within 24 - 48 hours.
We recommend that you call and schedule a follow-up appointment with your healthcare provider to discuss the results.
