Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
What is MRI?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technology that produces three dimensional detailed anatomical images without the use of damaging radiation. It is often used for disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring.
MRI scanners are particularly well suited to image the non-bony parts or soft tissues of the body. They differ from computed tomography (CT), in that they do not use the damaging ionizing radiation of X-rays. The brain, spinal cord and nerves, as well as muscles, ligaments, and tendons are seen much more clearly with MRI than with regular X-rays and CT.
What is the right technology?
There are seemingly endless MRI options available. Should you choose a 1.5T or a 3T system? What about coil package? Do you need additional software packages such as metal artifact reduction (MAR)? Is wide-bore necessary or will a standard 60 cm bore be sufficient for your patient population?
