Test Preparation
  1. At the time of the MRI you might be asked to remove any metallic coins, jewelry, metal wrist watches, metallic keys, dentures or hearing aids as the MRI uses strong magnetic fields
  2. Tell your radiologist if you have metallic implants like pacemaker, cochlear implants, aneurysm clips, neuro-stimulator, surgical staples/clips or drug implants

Overview


What is MRI Face And Neck With Contrast?

An MRI neck creates picture of the cervical spine composed of 7 cervical vertebrae, tongue, pharynx, larynx and surrounding soft tissues (blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves, vas deferens). The images captured during the MRI scan can be stored on an electronic device which is further printed on a film. The MRI scan is radiationless test which uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D multiple images. The whole MRI scan procedure takes about 40-60 minutes. You may be asked to take an oral solution of the radio-contrast agent or be given the same in an injectable form for better images of the internal body structures in the MRI scan.

Why is MRI Face And Neck With Contrast done?
