Abdominal Cavity (Abdomen) MRI

English
Appointment: Recommended
Important Information,
Preparation:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Instruction Leaflet 
Implant Examinations
Fear of Closed Spaces
MRT Patient Information and Consent Form

Contrast Material: Often required

Main Applications:

  • Ambiguous changes in the organs of the abdomen, which cannot be investigated by ultrasound or computed tomography (CT)
  • 3-dimensional visualization of the bile duct and the urinary tract
  • Cavities filled with fluid (cysts), tumors and other changes in the female genital tract
  • Diseases of the prostate gland

The Upper / Mid-Abdomen Area:

  • Patients  lie face-up on the MRI table with their head at the front and arms above their head.
  • The  head is partially  outside the tunnel.
  • A coil is placed around the abdomen. Signals from the body are received through this coil.
  • If an intravenous injection of contrast material  is required, it is  provided through the venous access introduced earlier, which is attached to an injector.

The Lower Abdomen Area:

  • Patients lie face-up on the MRT table, with their head at the  front.
  • Your head is at the edge of the tunnel.
  • A coil will be placed around the abdomen. Signals from the  body are received through this coil.
  • If an intravenous injection of contrast material is required, it is  provided through the previously inserted venous access, which is attached to an injector.

The magnetic tunnel is illuminated from within, ventilated, and open at both ends. A window allows for visual contact with patients, who can contact the technologist at any time by speaking through an intercom system or pressing a bell. The scanner makes loud tapping sounds during the procedure, so patients are given ear plugs or headphones before the procedure.

Patients are requested to refrain from any movement during the examination since this disturbs imaging as well as their evaluation / reporting by the doctor.
