Main directions of research

Magnetic resonance imaging is a very effective research method in radiation diagnostics. MRI has a number of advantages over other methods of radiation diagnostics. First of all, this is the absence of X-ray radiation, and, consequently, the absence of harmful effects on the human body.

Secondly, this is 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, and MRI also allows you to obtain images of blood vessels without the introduction of a contrast agent.

The most popular types of magnetic resonance imaging are examinations of the following organs/departments:

  • spine;
  • brain and head;
  • cerebral vessels;
  • pituitary gland;
  • contrast media studies;
  • knee joint and knee;
  • elbow joint;
  • shoulder joint;
  • wrist and hand;
  • hip joint;
  • ankle;
  • abdominal and retroperitoneal space;
  • paranasal sinuses;
  • sacroiliac joints;
  • sacrococcygeal region;
  • pelvic organs.

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.
  • Pins.
  • Neurostimulators.
  • 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.
  • The need for monitoring cardiac activity.
