General Principles of Magnetic Resonance

  • The more accurately and in detail you fill in the request form and specify the requirement, the more accurate and detailed can be the MR examination and the conclusion!
  • Please send your patient to the MR examination with all their previous available X-ray, CT and MR documentation (not just descriptions) and results from examinations performed so far
  • Abdominal area and some pathological conditions of the skeleton are rather the domain of CT, but not always – it is better to discuss special indications directly at the MR department with the physician
  • The prerequisite for the MR examinations is to be completely still during the examination (20 to 40 minutes).
  • The exact procedure and method of the examination (including the application of the contrast agent) will be specified by the physician at the magnetic resonance after the analysis of the clinical data and medical history as well as during the examination according to the result of the first examination sequences.
