Where do you get an MRI injection?


Answer by  Gigi23 (139)

Some MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) tests require the injection of a contrast die to highlight blood vessels. The die is injected into the arm either directly or through an IV.

An IV is started to inject dye for an MRI. Generally, the site is a vein on the underside of the forearm.

Contrast injection for MRI scan is usually give in a easy detectable and pressure resistant vein in a arm; consider that not all the MRI studies need to be completed with contrast-enhanced images, so it's possible that you won't have to get any injection, it depends from the body part and the clinic.

The dye for MRI, typically galonidium, is injected into your vein via a normal IV at the time of imaging.

An mri is a device that uses magnets to take special xrays of your body. Some people get an I.V. injection of a special radio isotope or special dye that helps see things in your body with the mri. an i.V. is a small canula in a vein.


Answer by  Huntress (1935)

The most common is through an i. v. in the hand. Injections into a muscle in the buttock or the spinal column is much more rare.
