How will you feel during a knee MRI?

ANSWER

You won’t feel anything during the scan. But if it’s your first MRI, you may be surprised by how loud it is. The machine makes thumping, knocking, and humming sounds. The technologist will probably offer you headphones or earplugs. If she doesn't, you can ask for them.

After the exam, the technician will send images to your doctor. You’ll be able to drive yourself home and continue your day as you normally would.
