MRI Right Leg
What is MRI Right Leg?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a harmless imaging technique that produces accurate images of the body in detail. Only the patient's right leg is placed within the magnetic scanner's tunnel during this test. The images are mostly used to evaluate soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments to diagnose some joint or muscle injuries as fractures in some circumstances. A contrasting dye may be used to obtain clear images, but consult a doctor first in case of allergies.
It is a time-consuming procedure that may take 45-60 minutes to complete. It is regarded as a safer alternative to conventional imaging procedures for everyone, including pregnant women, because it uses radio waves and magnetic waves instead of X-rays for imaging.
