Most people have heard of an MRI at some point in their life, but what exactly is an MRI? In short, an MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, uses a magnetic field, radio waves, and advanced computing technology to create detailed images of the tissues, organs, and blood vessels within the body. MRI is used to detect conditions such as cancer, heart disease, abnormalities in the brain, degenerative diseases, and much more.
What Is Getting an MRI Like?
At simonONE, delivering powerful results through a gentle process is the goal. The MRI procedure itself is quick and easy, taking only 30-45 minutes. This non-invasive process allows you to resume life as usual, with no downtime involved. The scanner resembles a tube with a table that you lay on for the duration of your MRI. You can rest easy knowing that no radiation, contrast dyes, or fasting will be used or required in the process. Within 5-7 days, a sub-specialist will read the results and create a game plan that is catered to your specific needs.
