Why an MRI scan of the lower abdomen?

Do you have persistent low abdominal pain or pain in the lower abdomen? Then you obviously want to know what the underlying cause is as soon as possible. An MRI Scan Abdomen can then offer a solution. MRI is a very suitable technique for a follow-up examination, for example, when no visible cause for your symptoms is to be found during an X-ray examination.

In general, a better diagnosis can be made with an MRI of the lower abdomen than with an X-ray. Hundreds of images are taken of your body by using a large magnetic field. In doing so, a physician can gain greater clarity sooner about possible abnormalities or diseases in one of the organs in the abdomen (bladder, uterus, ovaries and prostate).

At Prescan, you can have an MRI Scan Lower Abdomen without a referral from your GP. You do not have to deal with a long waiting list. You can frequently be helped within a week.

You are immediately reassured if nothing is found on the scan.

One of the nurses will gladly advise you of the options for undergoing an MRI scan in a personal advisory consultation.

Organs in an MRI scan of the lower abdomen

You go through an MRI-scanner to create MRI images of the abdomen. During scanning, you lie on a comfortable couch, which is pushed into a kind of tunnel. The tunnel is open at both the front and back. If you find lying in the tunnel claustrophobic, you may have someone with you in the MRI room. A nurse will be on stand-by to provide information and, if necessary, to put you at ease. In addition, during the MRI scan, you have a bell that you can use to interrupt the scan in emergencies.   

The MRI scan creates images for the different organs in the abdomen: bladder, uterus, ovaries and prostate. The images can provide greater clarity on the presence of, for example, cysts, tumours or inflammation.
