It depends upon the site were the MRI is taken. An MRI can diagnose an clot or an haemorhage. It can also find out the internal structures.

You will be going in to have a detailed picture taken of part of your body. You have to lay in a round tunnel on a stretcher type bed. Depending on how many pictures they have to take you will have to lay still for quite a while and you will hear the MRI machine make noises.

First of all, you may not see a doctor. MRI is a simple procedure, but can be a bit taxing. You must remain as still as possible, but the technologists will help, providing positioning aids and possibly a straps to assist you in keeping the area under examination in place.
