In the MRI Suite, a patient’s comfort is our top priority. The suite is a quiet and relaxed environment where patients may listen to music during the procedure. Highly trained and sensitive staff are available to calm any anxiety that may arise from having a test. In some cases, a patient may have a contrast injection which helps radiologists see an area of the body. MRI is well-suited for imaging soft tissue, such as the spinal cord, brain, muscle, and joints, such as the shoulder, knee, ankle, wrist. The MRI Suite at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens is accredited by the American College of Radiologists.

About MRI Testing

In most cases, no before-test preparations are needed for an MRI. A technologist will bring the patient to the suite and explain the exam. The patient will lie on a flat table and the table will slide the patient into position in the MRI unit. Most MRI exams take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
