Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The safe imaging diagnostics for health
The Clinica San Francesco is the right choice if you look for a specialized centre in Verona where you can carry out the magnetic resonance imaging, and achieve the medical report as soon as possible.
This test uses a magnetic field and radio frequency waves to obtain very detailed body images. It does not use X-rays and represents a painless diagnostic test also executable shortly and especially safe for the health.
During the test, which can last between 20 and 40 minutes depending on the treated body part, the patient is asked to remain still on couch. For a correct working of magnetic resonance imaging is necessary to remove any object or garment containing metal parts.

What to do before the test
The patient, with the physician’s or staff’s help, must fulfil a questionnaire to verify that there are not contraindications for the examination.
Before to execute the magnetic resonance imaging it is important to know if:
- you are pacemaker carrier or have an artificial heart valve
- you are in verified or alleged pregnancy
- you carry mechanical devices for drug administration
- you have a surgery clip
- you have a cochlear implant, a neurostimulator or an electric conductor (shunt) hydrocephaly programmable
- you underwent brain surgical operations
- you carry metal implant within body
- you have an eye wound involving metal fragments
If the contrast agent is needed, is necessary to do not eat at least eight hours, except for the usual drugs. In other cases the resonance test provides for the administration of a medical product (contrast agent containing gadolinium) that makes more clear the body parts under examination. This substance doesn’t determine problems, but can provoke, although rarely, some reactions, for example allergic ones
