Pelvic MRI: How It Takes Place

The patient is made to lie in a supine position on the couch, with a coil on the lower abdomen. Shortly before the examination, it is necessary to take a hypotonic drug (Buscopan), to reduce intestinal peristalsis and related movement artifacts. The duration of the exam is about 30 minutes.

The examination is generally requested by a specialist doctor and is particularly useful in the following cases:
