  Patient Information - Sedation  
     
 


Sedation is a means of lowering the anxiety level and somewhat depressing the state of consciousness of a claustrophobic patient or patient experiencing pain so that an examination can be completed without difficulty. This is usually indicated for MRI patients. We do not put patients "to sleep" as is done with general anesthesia.

Because we have the shortest and widest MRI scanners available in the world as well as a high field open MRI, we have found that many claustrophobic patients find the MRI experience at our facility pleasant and non-anxiety provoking, even without medication.

ORAL SEDATION
For patients who have a mild to moderate degree of claustrophobia, we will prescribe an oral medication onsite 30 minutes prior to your exam start time.

INTRAVENOUS SEDATION
For patients who have a severe degree of claustrophobia, an intravenous agent is sometimes necessary. This will be administered onsite.

PREPARATION
Please do not eat or drink for two hours prior to your appointment time. Please arrive at the center 30 minutes prior to your exam. Children under 50 pounds should arrive 1 hour early. Make sure to have someone available to drive you home after your appointment.
