Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Resonance Imaging works on the principle of a magnetic
field and does not involve radiation of any sort.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging involves
placing the patient in an external magnetic field,
thereby exciting all the tiny protons in the body
which is used to produce the MR image. MRI is the
best imaging modality for soft tissue, muscles, nerves,
spinal cord & various joints, whereas CT has more
use for the bones, chest, abdomen & pelvis.
MRI offers multi planar capabilities,
wherein images can be obtained in any plane at various
At AHMT we do MRI of the entire body
which includes MRI of the brain, MR Angio (MRA) for
brain & neck vessels, as well as the body, MRI
of the neck, MRI of the abdomen & pelvis, MRCP
and MRI of the spine & joints.
MRI is a superior technology to
CT scan. However it does not replace the latter. To
do an MRI the patient is positioned in a closed tunnel
(which is quite wide in our machine as compared to
old generation machines). Nowadays, open MRI are also
available which are more patient friendly. However,
these machines are of lower strength, resulting in
relatively poor quality images and take much longer
time as compared to closed higher strength systems.
A wise patient would decide on having a better quality
scan than a little discomfort during the procedure
for better management of his disease.
- Best balanced MR system for powerful clinical
- Performs most advanced MR Angiography, Functional
Imaging and Cardiac Imaging.
- High Degree of patient comfort.
- Short exam times due to quick scanning
