Life happens, we get it. At some point you will probably find yourself in a situation where you'll be hurt, or need some images taken. Whatever the situation may be, at some time in your life you're going to need an MRI. Here are 6 reasons why you may end up needing an MRI.
1.) Severe Headaches
Tons of people get migraines, and headaches, it's one of the health problems that people complain most about. If you have severe headaches, 1-2 times a day, you may end up in our office. A lot of times doctors will want to see whats going on in your brain to see what the source of the pain is.
2.) A broken ankle
So you went out on a run, or was just a little too reckless, and you ended up with a broken ankle. It happens all the time. You'll definitely need to get an MRI done when you are going through the process of healing a broken ankle.
3.) Back pain
Another very common health condition that most people have is back pain. If you are having trouble with back pain, make sure to get an MRI to make sure that there are no discs in your back that may be dislocated.
4.) You're worried about your breast cancer risk
Studies have shown that if you are at a normal risk of breast cancer, that you should get screening MRI's done in addition to your mammogram. So that means that once a year you should be scheduling an appointment for a mammogram, and an MRI.
5.) You got in a car accident
We know it's a frightening thought, but car accidents happen. Whether it was a small accident or a bigger one, you should get an MRI to know if there are any conditions that arose from the accident. It's better to get these treated immediately rather than waiting for symptoms to arise.
6.) If you have heart disease
If you have heart disease, have had a heart attack in the last year, or have a history of heart disease, you may want to consider making an appointment for an annual MRI. An MRI will be able to show a patient if their heart is healthy, and if there are any problems that they should know about to ensure the heart is healthy.
