The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

Overview

MRI scan is short for magnetic resonance imaging. MRI scanners involve powerful magnets and radio waves, which causes to get a detailed image of the one’s organs. By getting a detailed image, doctors can identify the patient’s health problems. There are different kinds of MRI scans, such as MRI scan with contrast and without contrast, in addition to open MRI. In contrast to CT scan, there are no X-rays in the MRI scan procedure.

Preparation

Generally, there is no need for preparation before the MRI scan. However, depending on the case, doctors might want you to fast for several hours or in contrast, it might be recommended to drink a lot of water before the MRI scan. Since the MRI scanners involve powerful magnets, it is important to pay attention to remove all metal objects in your body, including jewelry.

How It Is Performed

During the MRI scan procedure patients lie down. Depending on the purpose of the MRI scan, the body part undergoes the MRI varies. It might be the patient’s head in the cases of MRI brain scan or neck MRI, or it might be the legs for the cases of abdominal MRI and lumbar spine MRI. It is very important to stay still during the MRI scan procedure since movement might affect the results. In some cases, doctors may offer an MRI with contrast to get a clearer image.Contrast is a chemical substance that enters the patient’s body through injection and then spreads with blood. Though, contrast is not necessitated in all the cases of MRI scan procedure.

Recovery

MRI scan is a non-invasive procedure that does not involve anesthesia. Therefore, there is no recovery period of an MRI scan. 

Risks

MRI scan does not involve X-rays or any other type of possibly dangerous radiation. Therefore, there are no risks involved in the procedure. However, as a precaution, it is not recommended for pregnant women to get an MRI scan specifically during the first couple of months of pregnancy. In addition to that, it is also not recommended to have an MRI scan for the patients who have metal implants in their body, such as pacemakers, artificial hearts, etc.

Faq

When Should I Undergo an MRI Scan? 
If the patient is suffering from different kinds of health problems such as cancer, spinal injuries, bone injuries, or soft tissue problems, doctors may decide on an MRI scan. The most common types of MRI scans are head MRI, abdominal MRI, and spine MRI that involves cervical spine MRI and lumbar spine MRI.

Why Sometimes Doctors Perform MRI with Contrast? 
Contrast is a chemical substance that is used in order to make patient's some of the body parts more visible, causing a more detailed MRI scan. However, the choice of MRI with contrast depends on a kind of MRI. Doctors may perform brain MRI with contrast but decide for MRI without contrast in other cases. 
CT Scan vs. MRI Scan – What Is the Difference? 
CT scan (or CAT scan) involves X-rays, which, although in low doses, may be potentially hurtful to some patients. Since the MRI scan involves radio waves and magnets, there is no risk for the radiation. However, in some cases, CT scanner might provide more detailed imaging than an MRI scanner. Therefore, your doctor would decide on performing whether CT scan or MRI scan depending on your condition
