A cardiac MRI is a highly specialized diagnostic tool that creates detailed images of the heart without using radiation. They are used to capture sophisticated images of:
Deborah has invested in a state-of-the-art MAGNETOM® Sola 1.5T wide bore scanner with BioMatrix technology. Among its features are:
This sophisticated imaging equipment is essential in diagnosing tissue damage and monitoring a variety of cardiovascular conditions especially disorders of the cardiac muscle, valve disease, congenital heart disease, coronary artery disease, heart failure, heart rhythm disturbances and issues related to COVID-19.
If your cardiologist schedules you for a cardiac MRI, you will make an appointment through Deborah’s centralized scheduling department.
MRI scans vary in length and can average between 30-60 minutes or longer depending on your specific physician’s order. After the technologist completes the pre-MRI screening you will be escorted into the MRI room for your test. The scanning table will be lowered for comfortable access so you can easily lie down. You will be provided with special headphones and asked what type of music you might like to listen to during the scan.
The technologist will explain the procedure and let you know what to expect during the scan. Once completed, your ordering doctor will receive a copy of the results after they have been interpreted by our medical staff.
By participating in this quiz, or screening or health assessment, I recognize and accept all risks associated with it. I understand that the program will only screen for certain risk factors and does not constitute a complete physical exam. For the diagnosis of a medical problem, I must see a physician for a complete medical exam. I release Deborah Heart and Lung Center and any other organization(s) involved in this screening, and their employees and agents, from all liabilities, medical claims or expenses which may arise from my participation. Thank you for investing in your health by participating today.
