Photos of Clarendon wing MRI department
This patient had a liver scan.
Some scans require contrast dye, sometimes referred to as ‘special picture medicine’. This dye is inserted through a cannula.
Some MRI scans require breath holds.
In this film Rachelle helps you practice holding your breath when you are having a MRI scan.

The children are required to hold their breath at certain points. An automated instruction is sometimes used or the radiographer will verbally give the
instructions and let them know for how many seconds they are required to hold their breath.
