    How is it like to get a pelvic mri though.

    I will have to get a pelvic mri in awhile. I have some anxiety about getting it done. Can someone tell me how is it like to get a pelvic mri. Like how long does it take. Any advice would be nice. Thanks.

    Like any MRI, just focus on the pelvic area. If you are claustrophobic, ask if they can do an Open Upright MRI. Am surprised they aren't doing an u/s or CT scan first....

    I think maybe a pelvic mri can get a better image of the fibroid. I am not sure though. I just have some anxiety of doing the mri ya. thanks.

    I can understand that. I'm very claustrophobic and had to do the open upright one for my back. I couldn't handle the regular one. It was fine - just took about 30-40 minutes so sitting there without moving was difficult but they had a big TV to watch so that made it better.
