Magnetic resonance imaging is a comprehensive diagnostic method that can be used in the examination of almost every organ. Magnetic resonance is fully non-invasive, because in contrast to other radiological examinations, it does not use X-ray radiation, but a magnetic field and radio waves that are totally harmless for the body. A computer calculates the data and displays it in the form of images of the anatomical structures in any plane, including in 3D.
Currently, this is the only method facilitating the evaluation of a possible pathological condition with an accuracy of a few millimetres. It is especially precise in the evaluation of the central nervous system (brain and spinal canal) and soft tissues of the limbs (subcutaneous tissues, muscles and joints). This examination is also used for a non-invasive evaluation of the blood vessels in the whole organism (so-called magnetic resonance angiography). Apart from the neoplastic disease diagnostics, it is also used in the evaluation of discopathy and osteoporosis, diagnostics of joint and ligament disorders, and kidney stones.
The GE OPTIMA MR360 1.5T device guarantees diagnostic accuracy even in the most difficult cases. It provides the highest imaging quality in all of its uses with the capacity, speed and accuracy at a very high level.
The following examinations are performed in the MRI Laboratory: basic evaluation of the head, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis, spine, bones and joints, as well as specialistic functional, quantitative and morphological examinations within the whole body – e.g. MRI angiography of the head, MRI cholangiopancreatography (MRCP).
