Sure, there are a lot of different imaging technique: X-ray, US, CT, but MRI has its own advantages:
• Safety. Despite the X-ray study MRI does not expose the patient to any harmful radiation. Absence of adverse effect allows to perform MRI as frequent as it is needed.
• Accuracy. MRI technology provides not just a clear and significant image of "inner world", but a three-dimensional model.
In some instances, the contrast media is used to enhance the image. The contrast media is a special substance administered orally or intravenously. According as patient does not have intolerance to components, the contrast agent is completely harmless and pass through the body in 48 hours.
Magnetic resonance imaging is widely used in diagnostics of various pathologies. In Medscan.rf you can undergo:
• MRI of the head MRI of the brain, MRI of the hypophysis, MRI of the nasal sinuses.
• MRI of the spine. MRI of the cervical spine, MRI of the thoracic spine, MRI of the lumbosacral spine, MRI of the tailbone, MRI of the sacroiliac joints.
• MRI of the joint. MRI of the temporomandibular joints, MRI of the shoulder joint, MRI of the elbow joint, MRI of the wrist joint, MRI o the hand, MRI of the hip joints, MRI of the knee joint, MRI of the ankle joint, MRI of the foot.
• MRI of the internal organs. MRI of the heart, MRI of the thoracic cavity and mediastinum, MRI of the breasts, MRI of the abdominal cavity, MRI o the retroperitoneal space, MR-cholangiography, MRI of the pelvic organs, MRI of the intestine
• MRI of the soft tissues. MRI of the soft tissues and organs of the neck, MRI of tissues of the limb
• MRI of the vessels. MRI o the cerebral vessels, MRI of the neck vessels, MRI of the heart vessels, MRI of the subclavian artery, MRI of the thoracic aorta, MRI of the abdominal aorta, MTI of the limb vessels.
• MRI of the whole body.
You can undergo MRI in Moscow after calling us by phone number from our site or after online-request.
Magnetic resonance imaging is not performed for patient with any implanted metal objects: surgical implants, nails, insulin pumps, pacemakers or other foreign bodies.
There are some limitations for patient weight and physical characteristic of the patient. Weight should be less than 180 kilos; waist circumference and weight height should not be more than 140 and 32 cm respectively.
MRI is hindered in patients with claustrophobia, epilepsy, tics or mental disorders too. Patient`s stillness plays a crucial role in receiving highly reliable results. One involuntary movement spoils the whole image and we should start the procedure over. In these cases, we recommend to perform MRI under general anaesthesia.
Other contraindications are associated with contrast media usage. The contrast media is a substance administered to the patient to make sharp image of the target region.
Also, the contrast media may be dangerous for people with metabolic impairments, pregnant and nursing women. The contrast agent is harmless for healthy individuals, but if it is not excreted properly can cause intoxication.
Diagnostic centers Medscan.rf perform MRI for children of every age.
You need some preparation in two cases:
• MRI of the pelvic. The bladder should be full. For this purpose, drink litre of water in an hour before the procedure and avoid peeing.
• MRI of the abdominal cavity. You need to fast for at least 5-6 hours before the procedure.
Before the MRI you should tell the radiologist about all allergies or intolerance to any substance and give him all medical reports you have.
You can receive study report after few hours. You do not have to come back to Medscan.rf for the report. It is accessible through your personal account on our site.
Magnetic resonance imaging is the safest and most effective method of soft tissue and organs diagnose. MRI does not involve any radiation and usually does not require contrast media injection. Molecules` and nuclei motion under magnetic field changes allows to produce 3D-image of the target area and find pathology on the very early stages.
MRI in Moscow is performed with maximal comfort, the patient lies in the open MRI-scanner. Contraindications for MRI are cardiac-pacemaker and any implanted devices.
It`s easy and comfortable to undergo MRI in the Medscan diagnostic clinic. You would receive the most adequate image of the organ or tissue with all details and with this result your physician would be able to make a clear understanding of state of the organ, establish a diagnose and order correct treatment.
Medscan provides an opportunity to perform MRI with any type of modern scanners which ensure great accuracy of diagnostics. Modern Siemens scanner Magnetom AERA 1.5T produces perfect high resolution images of any area of the body.
Medscan gives an option to undergo examination:
There is no need for special diet or medical procedure before the MRI scanning. Usually you can undergo MRI in the date of first visit without special preparations.
