Anderson Diagnostics is the most affordable diagnostic service provider in India. We use safe and accurate Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines.
Our branches at Poonamallee High Road and Nungambakkam, Chennai have 1.5 Tesla MRI modalities.
Our motto is transparency. We use the best and the latest techniques because accuracy is essential in MRI. It often leads to early detection and complete treatment of the disease.
Without a doubt, MRIs are the most advanced tools available to diagnose medical conditions. The more powerful the magnetic field strength of the machine, the better it is.
The power of an MRI modality is measured in Tesla units. As one of the best diagnostic service providers in India, our scan centres in Chennai have 1.5T MRI modalities. They offer very high-resolution images, great for quality diagnoses.
The MRI scan cost can range from INR 5,000 to INR 15,000 based on what part of the body is scanned.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI scan is a safe exam. That said, there is no conclusive data that proves if MRIs are safe for the woman and the foetus as of yet. For this reason, MRI is not conducted on any pregnant women still in their first trimester, i.e., first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
An MRI can be prescribed if there is a strong medical indication for it. Often an abbreviated MRI exam is performed. This reduces the time in the magnetic field. We recommend consulting your healthcare provider for more specific information.
An MRI scan in Chennai can be as short as 15 minutes and as long as 90 minutes. The exact time of the Magnetic Resonance Imaging exam depends on the type of scan.
We advise talking to the radiologist before your MRI scan to find out how long it will take. Irrespective of the time, every MRI scan is painless and has no side effects.
No, an MRI scan is absolutely safe. The examination doesn’t use ionising radiation. It utilises magnetic fields or radio waves. There are no health risks connected to them.
The only precaution necessary during the MRI scan is removing all metal objects. Therefore, people who have metal implants like aneurysm clip, spinal stimulators or pacemakers need special consideration. Always make the radiologist aware of these before the examination.
MRI scan results are available within hours of the examination. They are examined by a radiologist. A radiologist is a board-certified and trained physician who uses imaging to diagnose conditions and diseases.
At Anderson Diagnostic, our expert radiologists look at your scan results and provide a detailed report to your primary doctor. In some cases, like a cardiac MRI, the scan is interpreted by a trained cardiologist.
