MRI Scans

Miami Metropolitan Area MRI Scans

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Also Serving the Broward, Orlando and Southern Florida Areas

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (or MRI) utilizes electromagnetic radio waves and a computer to demonstrate detailed images of one’s internal structure. Our certified doctors at COR Medical Centers are here to provide you with a precise and accurate diagnosis to ensure that you are receiving the proper treatment for your specific condition or injury. Let our healthcare specialists help you by detecting any problems or disorders, whether they be cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, neurological, or oncologic (cancer-related).

What is an MRI Scan?

MRI scans work by using radio waves, a strong magnetic field, and a computerized system to capture images of any part of your body both painlessly and swiftly without the need for ionizing radiation exposure. MRIs function similarly to CT scans, but create more detailed and accurate depictions due to the greater contrast between your organs and tissues. For certain cases where specific abnormalities or blood vessels require analysis, an intravenous contrast agent may be needed.

What Happens During an MRI Scan

When coming in for your MRI examination, one of our radiologist technicians will guide you onto the padded table, place you in the right position, and inside the tube. You will be asked to remain motionlessly from anywhere between 20-45 minutes depending on the part of the body that needs to get scanned.

Throughout the exam, you should expect to hear noises coming from the machine, and some earplugs will be provided if necessary, and some models even play music or and DVD to watch while you patiently wait. Your radiology technician will be in constant contact with you the entire way through, and an alert button will be in reach if needed.

Preparing for your Exam

There is not much specific preparation needed before getting your MRI scan. Unless instructed otherwise by our healthcare providers or your primary care physician, you can continue with your regular diet and any medications you may be taking.

Before entering the scanning area, you will be asked to remove any coins, keys, hair clips, jewelry, watches, clothing with metal zippers/buttons, and any other metal objects you may have. Any ATM and/or credit cards must not be brought into the room as well, for the magnet within the machinery will wipe out any magnetic codes on your cards. If you have claustrophobia or have a hard time laying still, our office can supply you with oral or intravenous sedation.

Please make sure to notify one of our technicians or staff if you have:

  • A pacemaker
  • Aneurysm clips
  • Shrapnel or any metal fragments anywhere in your body
  • Had brain or heart surgery
  • Suspicions of pregnancy or if you are pregnant
