A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

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.

Side Effects

Even though there is wide research, there is no clear data regarding the MRI scan side effects.

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
