Award-Winning Chicago Podiatrists For Foot & Ankle MRI’S

chicago podiatrist for foot ankle mriMagnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the fastest and safest non-invasive method to get the clearest pictures of your foot & ankle anatomy.

Installed in November 2006, we began patient services in January 2007 following eight weeks of testing. Our machines are sophisticated state-of-the-art, technologically advanced Siemens’ Jazz Extremity OPEN MRI and Esaote OPEN MRI. They are much quieter than the big tube MRI’s and with no claustrophobic effect to our patients.

This service provides our physicians with the ability to detect cartilage injuries, fractures, infections, ligament, and tendon injuries, and other abnormalities earlier in the treatment program, allowing us to provide the appropriate care without a trial and error mentality.

PATIENT INFORMATION FOR FOOT & ANKLE MRI’S

Safety — MRI is a painless procedure that has virtually no known side effects. To date, millions of patients have experienced MRI, and the procedure has been proven to be extremely safe. MRI uses a magnet instead of x-rays, and it is considered to be safer than the other radiological techniques that rely on radiation.

Exceptions are patients with brain aneurysm clips, metallic foreign bodies in the eye, very recent surgery with orthopedic implants, pacemakers, or cochlear implants.

If you think you may be pregnant, please notify the physician and the technologist.

Since MRI uses an extremely strong magnet, no metallic objects will be allowed in the scanning room.

To ensure your safety, you will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire that will be given to you before MRI scanning. There are no restrictions regarding eating, activities, or your regular medications before or after the test.

Our patient services staff will schedule an appointment for an MRI once it is ordered by your podiatrist. Please avoid wearing clothing that has multiple metal pieces. Jewelry, watches, and credit cards will not be allowed in the scanning room.

An MRI at our podiatry office takes about one hour. Images are taken with great precision and with almost total continuity so as to avoid missing important pathology that warranted the MRI in the first place. Once your imaging is complete, you will be set up with an MRI review appointment with your podiatrist. Your report will be made available to your physician within 24 to 48 hours of your imaging.
