How exactly do you prepare for an MRI? It's pretty simple, although there are some important things to think about. Remember to bringvalid ID.


Bring sweatpants (no metal buttons or zippers) and a t-shirt or pajamas to lie comfortably and avoid skin contact. If you are going to have a contrast-enhanced shoulder MRI, we advise you to wear a sleeveless shirt to facilitate administration of the contrast.


Any metal materials or materials including metals such as jewelry, telephones, glasses, coins, keys, watches, ATM cards, dentures and hearing aids are not allowed in the MRI room. Precious metal, in limited quantities, is usually not a problem.


To undergo an MRI, there are certain contraindications. For example, do you have a piece of metal in your eye that has not been completely removed by the doctor? Then it is a contraindication. Your referring doctor will take this into account. Unfortunately, if you have a pacemaker or ICD, we cannot help you. For all contraindications,click here.

contrast agent

Some MRIs require the use of contrast. In this case, this will be discussed with you during the meeting. We use Gadovist contrast agent. Gadovist is a safe and widely used contrast agent in healthcare.click herefor more information on precautions and possible side effects.


Only if you have MRIAbdomain /MRCP, you should not eat anything beforehand. If the examination is in the morning, please arrive on an empty stomach. If the exam is after 12.00, you can eat a light breakfast. No restrictions apply to other scans.


If you come for a head CT scan, please do not paint your eyes, as some of them may contain metallic flecks. This does not apply to permanent makeup.

Things to consider to make scanning as smooth as possible


The MRI machine is a type of tunnel that is open at the front and back. If you think you will have problems lying in the scanner, please let us know in advance. For some tests, such as knee or ankle tests, we can place you in the scanner so that your head is not in the tunnel. Our technicians have extensive experience in helping people who suffer from claustrophobia. In general, they are able to provide sufficient confidence to allow MRI to be performed. If you suffer from severe claustrophobia, we recommend asking your doctor for a sedative and taking it an hour beforehand.


Of course, you can bring someone to accompany you or keep you company. However, due to limited space in our waiting room, please limit it to one person. This person is expected to remain in the waiting room during the examination.


We appreciate if you arrive on time as we work on a tight schedule. We will do everything in our power to ensure that the visit takes place on the scheduled date. As we attach great importance to the quality of the exam, it may take a little longer than initially indicated. Therefore, the waiting time in the waiting room may be slightly longer. The receptionist will inform you about this. We ask for your understanding.

Please arrive 15 minutes before the exam to complete the survey. If you are late or unable to attend your appointment, please contact us. If a delay is not reported in a timely manner or if an appointment is canceled less than 24 hours in advance, the MRI Center is required to reschedule the appointment and charge a fee.

During MRI


Please arrive 15 minutes before the exam to complete the survey. The examination usually takes 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the type of scan. The MRI proceeds as follows:


Upon arrival, please report to the reception. You will then receive a short and simple survey, after which you can sit in our waiting room. There you can complete the survey over a cup of coffee or tea.


When it's exam time, the technician will call you and escort you to the locker room where you can change. There you can change into a sweatshirt, t-shirt or pajamas (or in the case of a contrasting scan of the arms, a sleeveless shirt).


The technician will then take you to the MRI room. If you still have questions or concerns about the test, you can discuss them with the technician. You will receive earbuds and noise canceling headphones with the music of your choice.

You will be asked to lie down on a table, which is then slowly slid into the "tunnel" of the scanner. The scanner is open at the front and back. It is important to remain as still as possible during the examination.


You will hear a series of loud beeps or pops during the scan. It's not always pleasant, but it's part of the MRI exam and it's normal. That's why you get hearing protectors.click hereto get the impression of an MRI sound (increase the volume for a realistic sound).


During the scan, the technician will be outside the room, but will be able to see you at all times. Through the intercom, the technician will give the necessary instructions. If necessary, you can contact the technician with a compressed ball.


Some tests require contrast to be administered through the IV arm. It depends on the type of exam. This is usually shared when scheduling a meeting. The contrast ratio makes the scanned area more visible. The contrast agent used is an iodine-free contrast agent injected into the arm. If you suffer from severe allergies, please let us know in advance.

Images and results



The images will be analyzed by an MRI Center radiologist who will report on his findings. This report with photos will be sent to your doctor within 1 to 3 business days. In the event of an emergency, the results will of course be reported as soon as possible and sent to the referring doctor. In the event of serious, unexpected abnormalities, we will immediately contact a doctor.


Your doctor will base his diagnosis on the report of the radiologist's findings. Also, your doctor is fully aware of your medical records and personal circumstances and can put the information from the MRI into context. Based on this, the doctor will make a final diagnosis. The Centre's radiologist or MRI technician will not inform you of the MRI results. Any questions related to the report should also be discussed with your doctor. Your doctor can then contact our radiologist.


If you as a patient would like a copy of the images on CD-ROM, this can be arranged for €15. You can inform the receptionist before the scan, but you also have the option to purchase a CD-ROM later. Please contact us.


MRI Centrum attaches great importance to patient satisfaction. Therefore, your opinion is very important to us. To assess patient satisfaction, you will receive a questionnaire from the patient after the MRI. Here you can tell us what you think about our service and suggest improvements. For us, these results are very valuable for further improving our quality.

What is the difference between MRI and MRN? ›

Magnetic resonance neurography (MRN) uses the power of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to accurately look at nerves anywhere in the body with high resolution. A specialist who has expertise in nerve imaging can find the exact location of damaged nerves and diagnose a broad range of nerve problems.

What is the difference between a CT scan and an MRI of the brain? ›

CT scans take a fast series of X-ray pictures, which are put together to create images of the area that was scanned. An MRI uses strong magnetic fields to take pictures of the inside of the body. CT scans are usually the first choice for imaging. MRIs are useful for certain diseases that a CT scan cannot detect.

What is the difference between an MRI and an MRA? ›

An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan is a procedure that generates pictures of organs, bones, and tissues. An MRA (magnetic resonance angiography) is a type of MRI that can provide images of the more than 100,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. Both procedures are painless and non-invasive.

What happens if you get an MRI with metal in your body? ›

Pins, plates and metallic joints

Metal that is well secured to the bone, such as hip and knee joint replacements, will not be affected by an MRI. The metal won't heat up or move in response to the machine. But if the metal is near an organ, such as the prostate, distortion could be a problem.

What are the three types of MRI systems? ›

Today, though, there are three different types of MRI scanners available to patients.
  • Traditional Closed MRI. A closed MRI machine is a large tube that a patient lays in. ...
  • Open MRI Scans. ...
  • Standing or Sitting MRI.

What can a CT scan show that an MRI Cannot? ›

Generally, CT scans are better at spatial resolution, while MRIs are better at contrast resolution. That means CT scans are good at showing us where the edges of things are — where this structure ends and that other one begins.

What can a brain MRI see that a CT cant? ›

Magnetic resonance imaging produces clearer images compared to a CT scan. In instances when doctors need a view of soft tissues, an MRI is a better option than x-rays or CTs. MRIs can create better pictures of organs and soft tissues, such as torn ligaments and herniated discs, compared to CT images.

Why would a doctor order a CT scan instead of an MRI? ›

A CT scan is better for showing bone and joint issues, blood clots, and some organ injuries, while an MRI is better for inflammation, torn ligaments, nerve and spinal problems, and soft tissues. Beyond accuracy, patient comfort is also a variable your doctor will keep in mind. MRI and CT scan machinery are different.

Is MRI and MRV the same thing? ›

Magnetic Resonance Venography, MRV

A specific type of MRI that examines the veins without the overlying tissues being visible. Typically, this exam will require an injection of a contrast material to enhance the visibility of the veins.

Can MRI and MRA be done at the same time? ›

Neuroradiologists may perform MRA and MRI together as complementary examinations to obtain a more complete view of the blood vessels.

Is an MRI the same as an MRE? ›

Magnetic Resonance Enterography (MRE) is a special type of resonance imaging (MRI). The scan is done using contrast material to produce detailed images of the small intestine and bowel.

Is an MRA done in an MRI machine? ›

A standard MRI cannot provide a good picture of the blood vessels and blood flow. People who have an MRA also may have an MRI. When you have an MRA, you lie on a table and the table moves into the MRI machine. An MRA is done with the same machine as an MRI.
