How Do MRIs Work?
Without the need for radiation, an MRI machine can scan your body’s organs, muscles, skeleton, nerves, and other soft tissues. It does so by using electromagnetic field (EMF) adjustments, which trigger microscopic reactions in the hydrogen atoms in your body. The machine records those reactions to “take a 3-D picture” of your body’s inner workings.
MRI machines are large tubes that you lie down inside while the scan proceeds. Because MRI machines are so large, only certain clinics like ours have them.
Doctors, physicians, physical therapists, and other medical professionals like MRI scans for many reasons. First, an MRI does not use radiation, so the risk of any complications is minor. Second, MRIs make 3-D images that can be manipulated by the medical team, so they can closely examine injuries from multiple angles. Third, an MRI is a relatively quick procedure, so it is often simple to fit one into a patient’s schedule. At iRISE Spine and Joint in Doral, we take extra care to make our MRI appointment options convenient and flexible, so scheduling is even less work than normal.
MRI scans can help doctors diagnose these medical issues and more:
- Bone infections or tumors

- Herniated discs

- Spinal cord injuries
- Torn ligaments or cartilage
What Our MRI Can Scan
iRISE Spine and Joint often works with auto accident victims, as well as people who have been hurt in workplace accidents and slip and fall accidents. If you were in such an accident, then you should see if an MRI scan can help uncover your injuries. Soreness and limited mobility are common signs that something is wrong, even if you can’t see an obvious injury, so you should plan an MRI if you have these symptoms.
By using an MRI, we might be able to detect these injuries:
- Back injuries like herniated discs
- Neck injuries like whiplash
- Head injuries like concussions
- Joint injuries and complications

MRI Scan FAQ
Are MRIs affordable?
Medical clinics and laboratories have used MRIs for years. It is a recognized diagnostic treatment option, so it is covered by many major healthcare insurance companies and policies. Depending on your coverage, you might only have a small co-pay for an MRI.
Are MRIs dangerous?
MRIs are considered highly safe for most patients because they do not use radiation imaging like x-ray machines. They are also essentially hypoallergenic, meaning there is virtually no risk of having an unexpected reaction to the scan. The biggest issue with MRIs is that they are not safe to use with metal objects like jewelry, joint replacements, and pacemakers.
Are MRI machines noisy?
Yes, some people consider an MRI machine to be noisy. It hums the entire time and can also make thumping sounds as the coils inside it expand. Although, some patients say the hum sounds like relaxing white noise while inside the machine.
Do MRI scans take a long time?
An MRI scan will often take anywhere between 15 minutes and 90 minutes to complete. A scan will take longer if you have multiple body parts that need to be scanned, or if additional detail in the images is required. We always do our best to give our MRI patients an accurate prediction of how long a scan session will take, so there are no surprises with scheduling.
