MRI Diagnostic Tool

If you are facing treatments for mesothelioma, you may be curious about the various different types of tests that you might have to go through. One of the most common diagnostic tools used by doctors is the use of magnetic resonance imaging, also known as a MRI. This is a medical test that can be utilized to discover any problems in specific parts of the body by using magnetic radio waves.

After the scan is complete, the doctor will be able to view detailed images of the bones, internal organs, and the surrounding tissue. This test is often more popular with physicians because it does not require the radiation that is used in x-rays and other diagnostic tests.

One major benefit of MRIs is that they are painless. Patients who suffer from any level of claustrophobia may not feel comfortable during the scan, however, due to the small space inside of the scanner. In some cases, a substance is injected into the patient to help the doctor better see where infection has occurred. This is typically administered by needle and may cause momentary pain.

One tip you may want to know about if you are going to be going through an MRI is that the process can be very loud. If you are offered earplugs, it is best to take them even if you do not think the noise will bother you.

Once your MRI is complete, the results are determined by a trained radiologist. This radiologist will share the results with your doctor and determine whether or not other tests are needed.
