Magnetic resonance imaging is an effective research method in radiation diagnostics.
Lack of X-ray radiation, and therefore no harmful effects on the human body.
The non-invasiveness of the method, in which most studies, in contrast to computed tomography, are carried out without intravenous contrasting due to obtaining a good contrast of soft tissues, also MRI allows you to obtain images of blood vessels without the introduction of a contrast agent.
MRI in K+31
K+31 presents MRI machines in every clinic.
Siemens Magnetom Essenza 1.5 Tesla at K+31 Petrovsky Gate.
SIGNA™ Architect AIR™ Edition 3 Tesla in K+31 at Lobachevsky.
On average, an MRI scan lasts 15 to 45 minutes.
During the study, it is necessary to maintain complete immobility. This should be taken into account in patients with severe pain syndrome. If, due to severe pain, it is not possible to be in a forced position for a long time, then before the examination it is necessary to perform anesthesia with your attending physician or come for an examination after relief of acute pain.
After MRI examination
After the examination, according to the results of the scan, you will need to consult a specialist doctor - a neurologist, traumatologist, surgeon, urologist, gynecologist or others. The final diagnosis is made by your attending physician and, according to him, prescribes the appropriate treatment.
Contraindications to MRI
There are absolute and relative contraindications to MRI. If there are absolute contraindications, the study is impossible, if there are relative contraindications, the question of conducting the study is decided individually with the MRI doctor performing the study.
Absolute contraindications to MRI:
- The presence of a pacemaker.
- Brain vascular clips after surgical treatment.
- Large metal implants and debris in the body.
- The presence of metal shavings, debris in the eye area.
- Middle ear implants (fixed hearing aids).
Relative contraindications for MRI:
- Heart valve prostheses.
- Claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces).
- Decompensated heart failure.
- Hemostatic clips (except for cerebral vessels).
- Pregnancy (first 13 weeks).
- Having an inner ear prosthesis.
- The presence of tattoos, especially in the area of interest.
