MRI with Anesthesia
MRI of any region can be done under anesthesia, for pediatric or adult patients.
Must be authorized in advance by an imaging physician.
- When the patient can't or won't hold still
- Extreme pain laying on back
- Ventilator dependency
- Claustrophobia (fear of enclosed spaces, such as the MRI tube)
- Other potential complicating factors
Contrast administration and sequences will be determined by the radiologist. Please detail the indications when ordering, so the radiologist can decide whether contrast is needed.
