Cardiac MRI at Wexford Health + Wellness Pavilion

Heart MRI scans use radio waves and powerful magnetic fields to help your physician visualize interior structures and features of your heart. No ionizing radiation is used during the procedure. Although the magnetic field is not harmful to most people, you should let your physician know if you use any medical devices before your test.

Your physician may order a cardiac MRI to:

  • Evaluate your heart’s anatomy and functional ability
  • Detect or monitor heart disease
  • Assess damage after a heart attack
  • Evaluate any tumors on or within your heart
  • Determine the severity of heart valve problems

Depending on the reason for your test, your physician may recommend using contrast dye to highlight arteries and veins in and around your heart. In many cases, heart MRI scans last one hour or less.
