Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset is pleased to provide MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) at our Great Neck location to identify orthopedic injuries and conditions. An MRI captures images of various parts of your body without the use of X-rays, meaning no radiation is required.

What is the Purpose of an MRI?

Our practice uses the most advanced MRI technology and equipment to diagnose and treat a range of orthopedic injuries and conditions. MRI can help provide information for a fast and accurate diagnosis and possibly reduce the need for exploratory surgery or other diagnostic procedures.

MRI is commonly used to:

  • Examine soft tissues like muscles, organs, and nerves.
  • Detect and diagnose a variety of conditions, including injuries, tumors, infections, and abnormalities.
  • Provide valuable information for doctors to plan treatments and surgeries.

What Should I Know About Getting an MRI?

MRI is quite safe for the majority of patients, but there are certain conditions or medical devices that make certain patients ineligible, such as those with pacemakers.

Before your MRI test, please read the instructions below.

  • Make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
  • Wear clothing that does not have zippers, spandex, or metal. Do not wear jewelry. Remove any electronic devices or other objects that may interfere with the procedure prior to your appointment (i.e. cell phone, hearing aids, removable dental work).
  • Please be advised you must remove colored contacts prior to your appointment.
  • Important:
    • We cannot perform your study if you have a defibrillator or pacemaker. Please let us know if you need assistance scheduling your appointment at a hospital.
    • If you have a stent, please be prepared to provide information about your stent upon arrival for your appointment.
    • If you have a glucose monitor or insulin pump, it must be removed before you arrive for your appointment.
