Top-Level Chicago Podiatrists For Foot & Ankle MRI’S

chicago podiatrist for foot ankle mriMagnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has been a service we offer our patients since January 2007. As the fastest and safest method used to get clear, high quality pictures of your foot & ankle anatomy, there are many benefits to using MRI.

We use the industry-leading Siemens’ Jazz Extremity OPEN MRI and Esaote OPEN MRI machines to offer the most advanced technology to our clients. Not only are our machines much quieter than traditional MRI machines but they’re also designed to be open, making them more appealing to those who tend to be claustrophobic.

MRI allows our physicians to be able to better detect, diagnose, and treat injuries. With high quality images, medical professionals can look at fractures, ligament and tendon injuries, cartilage injuries, and other abnormalities to better diagnose the problem. With MRI, we can provide quick care and repair your injury with more accuracy.

PATIENT INFORMATION FOR FOOT & ANKLE MRI’S

Safety — Millions of patients have experienced the benefits of the MRI and with virtually no known side effects. MRI is painless and it’s use has been proven to be safe. Instead of x-rays, MRI uses a magnet system, thus eliminating the use of radiation that’s found with other techniques.

Not everyone qualifies for use of MRI. Those with brain aneurysm clips, metallic foreign bodies in the eye, recent surgery with orthopedic implants, pacemakers, or cochlear implants should not use MRI.

Also, if there’s a chance you’re pregnant, be sure to notify the physician and the technologist.

Any metallic objects will have to left outside the imaging room, as MRI uses a strong magnet for imaging.

There are no food, drink, or activity restrictions before or after the test. For your safety, you will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire that will be given to you prior to MRI scanning.

Once an order is received from your podiatrist, our patient services staff will schedule an appointment for an MRI. Please avoid wearing jewelry, a watch, clothing with metal pieces, and leave your credit card outside of the imaging room.

The MRI process typically takes around one hour. Images are taken continuously and with great precision, so we can offer you a complete diagnosis and get treatment started as quickly as possible. It takes about 24 to 48 hours for a MRI report to reach your physician, but once ready, you will be set up with an appointment to review the report with your podiatrist.
