Is There An Age Limit For Doing An MRI Scan?
Noon I want to ask if an MRI scan has an age limit? For healthy conditions, is it possible to do an MRI for prevention early? Thanks_Isna
MRI is one of the investigations that aims to get a picture / imaging of organs in the body. MRI works by utilizing magnetic fields and radio wave energy.
Some conditions that can be detected through MRI include disorders of the brain and spine, heart and blood vessels, bones and joints, as well as tumors and malignancies from organs in the body.
MRI examinations can be done for anyone but cannot be done on people who use special metal or electronic devices, such as using pacemakers, cochlear implants, metal-made joints and artificial heart valves.
Generally MRi is carried out if there are indications. If you want to do a screening of an illness, I suggest that you consult with your doctor so that the examination can be more directed, yes. You can also undergo medical check-ups in the laboratory. Usually the laboratory has a medical check-up package that you can choose as needed.
Hope it helps you,
