A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is performed inside of a large, open-ended cylindrical magnet that has a patient table in the center. MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to make images of the body. Because of this strong magnetic field, it is important to let the technologist know of any metal on or in your body.

Some MRI exams require an injection of an MRI contrast or dye. Typical MRI studies require 30 to 60 minutes. To ensure accurate imaging, it is important not to move during the exam.

All MRI exams are interpreted by a board-certified radiologist with subspecialty training in MRI. Magnetic resonance imaging is commonly used to examine the brain, spine, joints, abdomen, heart and blood vessels.

Rhode Island Hospital’s Andrew F. Anderson Emergency Center is the only emergency department in New England to feature an MRI system located within the department. Our state-of-the-art MRI unit is capable of performing a wide range of functions with the goal of faster, more informed treatment decisions as well as patient safety.
