If you’re seeking precise and reliable diagnoses or require screening before a biopsy, MRI scan may be necessary. Islamabad Diagnostic Centre (IDC) is the best choice for MRI scan in Pakistan, providing advanced imaging capabilities that ensure accurate results and exceptional patient care.
Latest Technology: IDC takes pride in being the first Centre in Pakistan to offer MRI scans with the advanced 1.5 Tesla Signa Explorer Zero Helium Boil-off MRI manufactured by GE and Phillips. This ultra-fast MRI system enables us to perform advanced studies for angiography and cardiovascular evaluations, producing high-resolution images that aid accurate diagnoses.
Innovative In-Bore Experience: At IDC, we prioritize the comfort and well-being of all our patients, especially those who experience claustrophobia during MRI scans.

Gynecological Conditions: Uterine fibroids, endometriosis, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts, gynecological cancers, and pelvic inflammatory disease can be detected and evaluated through MRI scans.
Vascular Conditions: MRI scans aid in diagnosing arterial stenosis, arterial diseases, and other vascular conditions through 3D and 4D whole-body angiography, providing essential information for appropriate treatment strategies.
Abdominal and Pelvic Diseases: MRI abdomen and pelvis scans are valuable in evaluating conditions such as liver disease, gallbladder disease, pancreatitis, and tumors in the abdominal and pelvic areas.
Breast Cancer: Breast MRI offers a comprehensive assessment for detecting and evaluating breast cancer, contributing to accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.
Liver Fat and Iron Quantification: MRI scans can measure the amount of fat and iron in the liver, aiding in the diagnosis of conditions such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and hereditary hemochromatosis.

This analysis aids in diagnosing conditions such as hydrocephalus and other cerebrospinal fluid disorders, ensuring comprehensive neurological evaluations and appropriate management strategies.
Renal Artery Assessment: Renal MRA scans are performed to evaluate renal artery stenosis and renal artery aneurysms, assisting in diagnosing and managing these conditions.
Biliary and Pancreatic Evaluations: MRCP (Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography) scans can identify gallstones, tumors, or inflammation in the bile ducts.
To ensure optimal results during your MRI scan at IDC, it’s essential to be appropriately prepared. Here are some preparation tips:
Inform About Metallic Implants: Before the MRI scan, inform us if you have any metallic medical implants or devices in your body, such as cochlear (ear) implants, pacemakers, surgical clips, or artificial heart valves. We will assess the safety of undergoing the scan or determine if additional precautions are necessary.
Dress Comfortably: Wear loose, comfortable clothing without metal buttons, zippers, or clasps. IDC may provide you with a hospital gown for the procedure if required. Avoid wearing jewelry, watches, or any accessories that could interfere with the MRI scan.
Fasting Requirements: In most cases, you will be asked to avoid eating or drinking for a few hours before the scan to ensure optimal image quality. However, you may need to drink a contrast agent for specific MRI scans. In such instances, follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding fasting and contrast agent consumption.
Medication Information: Inform your healthcare provider and the MRI technologist about any medications you take, including over-the-counter medications and supplements. They will guide you on whether you need to discontinue any medications before the scan and for how long.
MRI Procedure: Our staff will guide you to the MRI room on the scan day. You will be asked to lie still on a flatbed that gradually moves into the scanner. The scan time varies depending on the examined area but typically ranges from 15 to 50 minutes. To ensure precise and accurate images, relax and remain as still as possible throughout the procedure.
Safety Considerations for Pregnant Women: MRI scans do not use ionizing radiation and are generally considered safe during pregnancy. However, the decision to perform an MRI during pregnancy should be made on a case-by-case basis, weighing potential risks and benefits, and in consultation with your healthcare provider.
