Magnetic resonance of abdomen and pelvic cavity

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technique that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio waves to produce images of organs, tissues and structures within the body. Magnetic resonance imaging provides a different kind of information compared to x-ray, ultrasound or scan (CT). This method has the role of determining the various diseases and conditions of organs and structures in the abdomen and pelvis (liver, gall bladder, pancreas, kidney and bladder). It is used to detect and determine the existence of a tumor, bleeding, infection or blockage in the delivery of various body fluids (urine, bile, etc.). In women, it plays a role in determining the appearance of the uterus and ovaries, and in men, the prostate gland. Contrasting may be required for certain shots to make the picture clearer. Porcelain is painless and lasts about an hour.


• To determine the existence of various diseases of the abdominal organs and surrounding structures in the abdomen and pelvis. In order to determine the existence of tumors, to distinguish malignant (malignant) tumors from benign ones, bleeding, blockage in the conduction of various body fluids (urine, bile…) or some congenital organ malformations.
• To determine the condition of organs and blood vessels before a planned surgery or transplant.


• The magnetic resonance machine looks like a big tube with both ends open. Recording is done by lying on a table that moves toward one opening of the machine. Your healthcare provider will observe you while recording from the next room. During recording, you will be able to speak through the microphone.
• This machine creates a strong magnetic field around you and directs radio waves to your body. The procedure itself is painless. You will not feel the existence of a magnetic field or radio waves around you.
• During magnetic resonance imaging, the machine itself produces repeated sounds and noise. If you find these sounds uncomfortable, we will try to provide you with music to help you relax. If you are disturbed by the tight space inside the machine and make you nervous, you should talk to your doctor before the procedure. If necessary, in consultation with your doctor, you may take a tranquilizer.
• Sometimes it is necessary to use a contrast agent (gadolinium), which is usually injected intravenously. The contrast makes it easier to see certain details. The contrast agent used during magnetic resonance imaging rarely causes allergic reactions compared to the contrast agent used during scanning (CT) imaging.
• During magnetic resonance imaging, you will need to stay still most of the time to keep the images clear.


• Before magnetic resonance imaging, you can eat normally and take the medicines you are taking as part of regular therapy. You may need to remove jewelry, glasses, a watch, hearing aids, or a wig.
• It may be necessary not to drink or eat with magnesium resonance prior to recording certain organs in the abdomen.


• If you have not been sedated during recording, you can immediately return to your normal daily activities.
