Mri Iam Scan
Awake: Although it is a tempting idea to have an MRI while sleeping, that is usually not a good idea. Patients move a bit when sleeping and dreaming, and sometimes snore, and are unable to listen to instructions while asleep. This usually leads to a poor study due to motion artifacts. Patients should be relaxed and awake during the study. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Don't worry: Many people get scared about the mri. But there's nothing to worry about. It's not an x-ray so there's no radiation. However, it takes longer to scan, it's noisy, and the tube is smaller. So the main problem is claustrophobia. If you have that or suspect you may feel that, let your doctor or the radiologist know beforehand and they can give you a low dose sedative to help you relax. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very different: Pet is a technique for measuring concentrations of positron-emitting radiopharmaceuticals and presenting these as a metabolic image of the body.

Mri uses a combination of a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce anatomic images of the body without the use of radiation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: It depends on your symptoms and the area of the body that is being scanned. There are other imaging modalities available, including CT, nuclear medicine and Ultrasound, as well as routine x-rays.
