MRI Studies

Wake Radiology has long been a Triangle leader in MRI, conducting one of the largest body MRI programs in the region. In addition to opening the first outpatient MRI center in Wake County, we were the first to perform many MRI procedures. These include the first cardiac MR in Wake County as well as the first fetal MRI and contrast-enhanced 3D MRAs of the carotid, aorta, renal, mesenteric and peripheral arteries in Raleigh. Most recently, our radiologists were the first in the Triangle to perform an MRI procedure on a patient with an MRI-compatible pacemaker.


At Wake Radiology, it’s easy to have a comfortable and anxiety-free experience during an MRI. Our radiologists are uniquely able to provide IV sedation whether scheduled upfront or on-the-fly to patients who have concerns, anxiety or claustrophobia. If a patient doesn’t bring a driver, Wake Radiology can assist them in making arrangements to be taken home after the study.

Six convenient locations plus evening and weekends

Wake Radiology offers MRI services at eight of our convenient outpatient imaging locations in Raleigh, Cary, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, Wake Forest and Chapel Hill. Many of these locations have extended evening hours as well as Saturday and Sunday appointments to facilitate patient access to this important imaging modality. Learn more about MRI

Safety checklists

Wake Radiology understands the power of the MRI magnet and takes the extra steps needed to ensure that patients are safe to enter the scanner. Many items not only interefere with an MRI study but also can be hazardous to patient safety. Learn more


The Medtronic Revo and Advisa MRI SureScan Pacing Systems are the only pacemakers that are safe for use in MRI procedures under specified MRI conditions. Please verify the device and leads on your pacemaker identification card. If it doesn’t have SureScan Technology, then it’s not FDA-approved for an MRI examination. Learn more
