Further Information

Scan Procedure

During an MRI Enterography, the patient lies on a table that slides into a large tunnel-like machine. The MRI machine uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the small intestine. The procedure typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour.

Preparation for the Scan

Before the scan, patients may be asked to fast for a certain period and to drink a contrast material that helps to highlight the small intestine in the images. Patients should also remove any metal objects, as these can interfere with the MRI machine.

What to Expect on the Day

On the day of the scan, the patient will lie on the MRI table, and the technologist will position them for the scan. The patient may hear loud noises during the scan, which are normal. The technologist will be in another room but can communicate with the patient through a speaker.

After the Scan

After the scan, patients can usually return to their normal activities. The results will be analysed by a radiologist and communicated to the patient's doctor, who will then discuss the results with the patient.

Alternative Imaging Options

Other imaging options include CT enterography and small bowel follow-through. The choice of imaging technique depends on the patient's symptoms and the consultant's decision.
