This test uses a large magnet, it kind of looks like a spaceship, radio waves and a computer to create pictures of the inside of your body. For this test you’ll have to stay really still, but don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing. Make sure to think about what kind of music is your favorite before you get here, we will give you headphones so you can listen during your MRI, you will also be able to talk to the technologist. Be prepared to hear some different noises too, nothing to worry about this is the sound a super large magnet makes when talking to the computer, kind of cool.
