MRI with Anesthesia

MRI of any region can be done under anesthesia, for pediatric or adult patients. Must be authorized in advance by an imaging physician.


  • When the patient can't or won't hold still
  • Pediatrics
  • Extreme pain laying on back
  • Ventilator dependency
  • Claustrophobia (fear of enclosed spaces, such as the MRI tube)
  • Other potential complicating factors


Contrast administration and sequences will be determined by the radiologist. Please detail the indications when ordering, so the radiologist can decide whether contrast is needed.
