What is MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a method of medical imaging using the combination of a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to recreate detailed images of the organs and tissues in your body. The magnetic field temporarily realigns water molecules in your body. Radio waves cause these aligned atoms to produce signals that the machine captures. These are then used to create cross-sectional MRI images of the body, tissues and structures.

Book an MRI Scan

Scheduling a Patient

To schedule a CT Scan, Doctors Hospital requires a copy of the patient’s requisition form from their physician. Once we receive the request from the patient for the examination, depending on whether the patient has insurance, a Doctors Hospital representative will request pre-certification. Once approval is received from the patient’s insurance company, we will contact them for an appointment.

If the patient will be paying out of pocket, or has a STAT referral, we will review the appointment request and determine the preparation required for the examination before scheduling.
