The RMN Bucuresti Bucharest has one of the most advanced MRI machines in Romania. This is a non-invasive and non-irradiating method of investigation, with the help of which 3D images can be obtained from any part of the body. It can also be used for the investigation of musculoskeletal disorders in the upper and lower limbs. The procedure is painless and does not require special patient preparation.
Before the investigation, the doctor will talk to the patient about the MRI scan process and answer any questions. Then, the patient will lie down on a scanner table. He will be provided with blankets and pillows for comfort, as well as headphones to block the loud scanner noise. The scan usually lasts 20 to 45 minutes.

After the MRI examination, the radiologist will examine and interpret the results. These will then be sent to your doctor, who will then plan the next steps of treatment if necessary. If you have any metal implants (such as joint prostheses, bone implants, or dental work), they may not be examined during the MRI exam because the powerful magnetic field can cause them to move and damage the implant. In some cases, such as for the investigation of blood vessels, a contrast dye can be injected into the patient’s vein before the MRI scan to help produce clearer pictures. Allergic reactions to this dye are rare.
The radiographer will ask you to remove any items of clothing that contain metal (such as watches, jewelry and hairpins) before the investigation. Then, the radiographer will place you inside the scanner, which is enclosed in a tunnel-like structure.
