MRI Consent Form and Safety Questionnaire

E-mail Print

This information is for patients of Melbourne Radiology Clinic who intend to undergo a test known as an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan.

An MRI scanner uses a powerful magnet and radiowaves to produce superbly detailed views of the human body, particularly soft tissues, such as the brain, spinal cord and muscles. Unlike many other imaging tests, MRI does not use radiation. Though some discomfort may occur from having to lay still, MRI is otherwise a painless procedure and typically takes approximately 20 minutes to perform.

A high field magnet, as used in MRI may have serious consequences in certain patients, and as such, we need you to answer some questions.
