Understanding Cardiac MRI

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a sophisticated, non-invasive diagnostic tool that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create detailed images of the heart and surrounding structures. Unlike CT scans or traditional X-rays, Cardiac MRI does not use ionising radiation, making it a safer option for repeated use. It provides exceptionally clear images of the heart's chambers, valves, and major vessels, offering invaluable insights into the heart's anatomy and function.

The Procedure

During a Cardiac MRI, the patient lies inside a large tube-like machine while magnets and radio waves generate images of the heart. The procedure typically takes 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the specific areas being examined. Patients are required to remain still during the scan to ensure the highest quality images. In some cases, a contrast agent might be administered to enhance the clarity of the images further.
