HIGH-FIELD MRI

High-Field MRI is a type of imaging system that utilizes radio waves and a strong magnetic field to generate images of the body. A powerful computer is used to create there images by controlling the interaction of radio waves within the magnetic field and displaying these interactions as a series of pictures or images.

High-Field MRI can be used to scan any part of the body. When trying to view extremely fine fractures or small intricate parts, such as the pituitary gland or knees and shoulder joints; it is the only alternative.

We utilize a short bore magnet system that is more comfortable than the traditional long bore magnets, but still affords superb image quality.

 

There are certain conditions that may prevent a patient from having an MRI:

Cardiac Pacemaker
Certain cerebral aneurysm clips
Infusion pumps for insulin or pain
     control
Cochlear implants ( inner ear)
Metallic fragments that my be in      sensitive areas
Pregnancy in the first trimester
Neuro-stimulators
Recent vascular stent (with 6 weeks of      placement).
