A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of the abdomen uses magnets and radio waves to make detailed images of the tissues and organs in your abdomen.

  • Your healthcare provider may order an MRI to find the cause of abdominal symptoms. It can also be done to monitor a condition that affects the tissues and organs in the abdomen.

MRI machines use powerful magnets, so be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have any metal or medical devices in your body.

  • If you are pregnant, your healthcare provider may order an MRI if he or she feels it can provide information that will be important for your health. Be sure to thoroughly discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure with your healthcare providers.
  • You may be given a contrast dye through a line in a vein in your arm or hand.
  • An MRI can take up to an hour, although newer machines may be much faster.

This care path's costs include the facility charges (the test or procedure) plus the physician charges (interpreting the test or performing the procedure). You may get separate bills for the facility and physician charges.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • What is my diagnosis and the reason for the test? Are the test results likely to change my treatment plan, and if not, do I need the test?
  • Remind your healthcare provider if there are any metal(s) or medical device(s) in your body.
