What is a MRI scan?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI), or magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) is amedical imaging technique used in radiology to visualize internal structures of the body in detail. MRI makes use of the property of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to image nuclei of atoms inside the body. MRI can create more detailed images of the human body than are possible with X-rays.
MRI scans of the lower back (aka the Lumbar Spine) range in price from $700-$3000 depending on where you get the scan done. Outpatient centers are relatively inexpensive versus their hospital counterparts. If the scan requires contrast (aka dye) the scan can cost an additional $100-$500.

If you have metal in your body you can not have an MRI Scan because the metal will not perform its job properly. Especially if the metal is magnetic, in which case the MRI can literally tear the object out of your body. Additionally there are some signatures that an MRI can't pick up and require a CT scan.
An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan is a medical imaging technique, which is used in radiology to look at our internal structure in a more detailed way. An MRI machine uses a very strong nuclear magnet resonance (NMR), we use this to look at soft tissues in the body, the brain, muscles, the heart and also having an MRI scan can detect cancers, which has really helped a lot of people, also MRI uses no…
I think you mean an MRI scan. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a scan used for a medical imaging procedure. An MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to take pictures of the body's interior. An MRI is used to investigate or diagnose conditions such as tumours, joint or spinal injuries or diseases, soft tissue injuries or diseases of internal organs such as the brain or heart.
Eating Before Having An MRI For certain kinds of MRI scan (e.g. an MRCP which looks at the biliary system) it's very important that you don't eat or drink for 4-6 hours before the scan. If you're having a scan of your pelvis it's often best not to eat beforehand so that artefact from bowel motion is reduced. The radiographers or technologists at the MRI Unit will advise you on the specific requirements for your…
