1.5 Tesla Siemens MRI Advanced Software
MRI Scan – MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging
A strong magnetic field and very high frequency radio waves are used to produce highly detailed images. At Magnus we have a high end 1.5 Tesla Simens MRI with advanced software capabilities to detect and diagnose very complex and minute abnormalities in the body.
What is MRI scan used for?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet and radio waves to look at organs and structures inside your body. Health care professionals use MRI scans to diagnose a variety of conditions, from torn ligaments to tumors. MRIs are very useful for examining the brain and spinal cord.
How long does a MRI scan usually take?
At Magnus diagnostic centre we takes around 15 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area being scanned and the number of images is being taken.
What is difference between MRI and CT scan?
CT Scan vs. MRI. CT scans and MRIs are both used to capture images within your body. The biggest difference is that MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging) use radio waves and CT (computed tomography) scans use X-rays.
Is an MRI painful?
We at Magnus diagnostic centre make sure the Procedure is done with no pain and minimal discomfort.
Is MRI harmful?
Because radiation is not used, there is no risk of exposure to radiation during an MRI procedure. However, due to the use of the strong magnet, MRI cannot be performed on patients with: Implanted pacemakers. Intracranial aneurysm clips.
Which is better a CT or MRI?
An MRI uses strong magnetic fields to take pictures of the inside of the body. CT scans are usually the first choice for imaging. MRIs are useful for certain diseases that a CT scan cannot de
Is MRI safer than CT?
In terms of radiation exposure, yes MRI Scan are safer than CT scan.
The biggest differences between an MRI and a CT Scan is the use of radiation and a magnetic field. An MRI does not use radiation, and a CT Scan does not use a magnet. Meaning, one is safer than the other for some patients. Anyone with metal in their body (pacemaker, stent, implant etc.)
