Area Head / Neck
- You lie face-up on the MRI table, with your head at the front.
- Your head is in the tunnel.
- A coil is placed around the head. Signals from the body are received through this coil.
- If intravenous injection of contrast material is required, it is provided through the previously inserted venous access which is attached to an injector.
Examination of the head
The magnetic tunnel is illuminated from within, ventilated, and open at both ends – the head and the feet. A window allows for visual contact with patients, who can contact the assistant 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.
