What To Expect During an Open MRI

What To Expect During an Open MRI

If you need digital x-ray imaging, you may be worried about the process. MRIs are loud, enclosed and can create feelings of claustrophobia. Fortunately, more and more providers are offering open MRIs. Open MRIs are as effective as traditional MRIs at diagnosing injuries, disease, and tumors without the drawbacks.

What To Expect During an Open MRI

Open MRIs are a particularly good choice for children, larger adults, and individuals that are nervous about undergoing the traditional MRI testing. Talk to your digital x-ray imaging provider to see if they offer open MRI options.

Preparing for your MRI

You do need to relax and remain still during the MRI, so it makes sense to avoid caffeine or alcohol before your procedure. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing, but be prepared to change into a hospital gown if needed. Remove any jewlery or other metal before the procedure. If you feel you will have trouble relaxing during the procedure, ask if you can bring your own music, audiobook or other form of distraction.

Once you are ready for the procedure to begin you will lay on a bed that will be moved into the machine. The technictian will place a coil around or over the area of the body that is being viewed.

9 Tips for Overcoming a Meth Addiction

Meth addiction is one of the hardest addictions to kick. However, people do it every day, and you can learn a lot from their habits and strategies for recovery. If you’re ready to live a clean, sober life, here are just nine tips and tricks for overcoming your meth addiction.

9 Tips for Overcoming a Meth Addiction

1. Throw Out Your Stash

This is easier said than done,of course, but it’s one of the first steps that you’ll need to take to beat your addiction.
