MRI #AtoZofMS #AtoZChallenge #poetry

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a scanning technique that produces images of slices through the body.

Lie on this table
Careful not to move
This massive tunnel
Will see inside your head

A little claustrophobic
Actually a huge amount
I don't care what it shows
I can't do it more than once

So much vibration
So little space to breathe
Raises my stress levels
Which triggers MS pain

I know it tracks progress
But unless it's an open one
I can't go in those machines
I'll have to stay at home

In multiple sclerosis it is used in the diagnosis of the condition 
and also for monitoring people during research studies.
