Abstract: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is widely considered to be a safe, noninvasive imaging modality since it does not employ ionising radiation. However, this does not imply that there are no adverse effects. The experience of patients during MRI procedures like other imaging techniques can be varied. Some patients' experience may lead them to absolutely refuse the examination or to make it impossible for it to be carried out. There are several factors which may affect experience of patients during MRI of the brain. This research was designed to identify those factors affecting the Maltese patients and to give practical solutions for improving this experience. This study was performed at the MRI suite in the Imaging Department at St. James Hospital in Zabbar. Several conclusions could be drawn from this study however which cannot be generalised for the total population. However, recommendations based on these conclusions could be suggested.
