Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)


  • Magnetic resonance imaging is a noninvasive procedure that identifies tissues, tumors, and vascular abnormalities.
  • It is similar to CT scanning but provides more detailed pictures.

Preprocedure interventions

  • Remove all metal objects from the client.
  • Determine whether the client has a pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, or other metal implants such as a hip prosthesis or vascular clips because these clients cannot have this test performed.
  • Remove intravenous fluid pumps during the test.
  • Provide precautions for the client who is attached to a pulse oximeter because it can cause a burn during testing if coiled around the body or a body part.
  • Provide an assessment of the client with claustrophobia.
  • Administer medication as prescribed for the client with claustrophobia.
  • Determine whether a contrast agent is to be used and follow the prescription related to the administration of food, fluids, and medications.
  • Instruct the client that he or she will need to remain still during the procedure.
