Do not eat or drink anything four (4) hours prior to examination. Thirty minutes before exam, drink one bottle of oral CT contrast. This contrast is available at our Front Desk, or often is given to you by your healthcare provider when the exam is scheduled. If the exam is scheduled after 9 a.m., drink one bottle of oral CT contrast three hours prior to the exam time.
MedCross Imaging is proud to offer patients and physicians GE 1.5T High-Field MRI. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetism and radio waves to produce remarkably clear pictures of your head, spine, or other parts of your body. An MRI scanner consists of a strong magnet with a radio transmitter and receiver used to gather information from inside your body. MRI produces soft-tissue images and is used to distinguish normal, healthy soft tissue from pathologic tissue.
