Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. A pelvis MRI scan specifically helps your doctor to see the bones, organs, blood vessels, and other tissues in your pelvic region?the area between your hips that holds your reproductive organs. This helps your doctor inspect potential problems found in other imaging tests, such as X-rays; diagnose unexplained hip pain; investigate the spread of certain cancers; or better understand the conditions causing your symptoms.MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. MRI uses the principle of magnetic resonance. Using the natural magnetic property of our body, the MRI machine is able to form images that help us diagnose the problem. Why is MRI such a good modality? MRI allows us to exquisitely see different parts of the body. In the brain, it allows us to differentiate between different areas. In the spine, MRI is the only modality that allows us to see the spinal cord. In joints, MRI allows us to view the internal parts of the joints, including ligaments, tendons and menisci. It also allows evaluation of various cardiac structures, as well as functional imaging of various parts of the brain. MRI does all this by sectioning the body in different planes. Just as it is necessary to slice a loaf of bread to know the quality of the slices, so also, MRI allows us to section the body to view its inner parts. Thus, the skull X-ray only shows us the outer part, whereas MRI shows us the inner parts of the brain. Where is MRI useful? All parts of the body can be scanned with MRI, but it is most useful in the brain, spine, bones, joints and the heart. It also has specific uses in other parts like the chest, abdomen and pelvis. For each part, there are specific indications or reasons for scanning. The referring doctor and the consultant radiologist are the best judges of the usefulness of MRI scanning in a specific situation and area. Are there any dangers in MRI scanning? Not ordinarily. However if you have any magnetizable items on or in your body, such as aneurysm clips, pacemakers, cardiac prostheses, metallic implants, etc. please inform us immediately, as there could be a problem related to these metallic items. What is the injection that I may receive? If necessary, you may be injected with a gadolinium-based dye to see things better
A pelvic MRI scan is a useful test for both sexes if you have:
SLAs:For MRI test scheduled before 8 AM eConsultation will be scheduled before 9 PM same day and the physical reports to be delivered by 10 PM same dayFor MRI test scheduled after 8 AM eConsultation to start from 8 AM next day and the physical reports to be delivered starting from 8 AM next dayFACILITATOR:Confirm the compliance of preparations required. Ask the patient to wear comfortable clothes free of metals, zippers, hooks.

An MRI scan uses magnets and radio waves to capture images inside your body without making a surgical incision. The scan allows your doctor to see the soft tissues of the body, such as muscles and organs, without your bones obstructing the view. MRI pelvic scan specifically helps your doctor to see the bones, organs, blood vessels and other tissues in your pelvic region � the area between your hips that holds your reproductive organs, as well as numerous critical muscles. This helps your doctor inspect potential problems found in other imaging tests, such as X-rays. They also use pelvic MRI scans to diagnose unexplained hip pain, investigate the spread of certain cancers or better understand the conditions causing your symptoms. An MRI doesn�t use radiation, unlike X-rays and CT scans, so it�s considered a safer alternative, especially for pregnant women or young children.
