MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, uses magnets and radio waves to provide images of the internal structures of the body. Magnetic resonance imaging allows medical professionals to examine the inside of a person’s body without the need for an invasive procedure. Unlike x-rays, MRI uses non-ionizing radiation
So what makes 3T MRI different from regular MRI?
A tesla is a unit of measurement. More specifically, a tesla measures the strength of a magnetic field. 3T MRI, or 3 Tesla MRI, uses very powerful magnets that produce a 3-tesla magnetic field.
A 3-tesla magnetic field is twice as powerful as the fields used in conventional high-field MRI scanners, and as much as 15 times stronger than low-field or open MRI scanners. This results in a clearer and more complete image. Stronger magnetic fields also produce better images of soft tissues and organs than standard MRI scanners.
3T MRI is the fastest diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging technology available. The computer generated images can be sent off-site for immediate analysis. These exams can be up to 100 times faster than standard MRI exams.
Another advantage of 3 Tesla MRI is that the exams offer more comfort than typical MRI exams. Some patients may feel anxious or claustrophobic in traditional MRI scanners. 3 Tesla MRI offers a more spacious bore, or tube, and the patient’s head can remain outside of the bore for scans that don’t involve the spinal cord, neck, or head.
Multidetector Computed tomography (MDCT) accompanied by its multiple post processing capabilities (maximum intensity projection, multiplanar reconstruction, and volume-rendering that is well suited to assess alternative non-invasive imaging modality that is well suited to assess the intracardiac anatomy of the adolescent or young adult with complex CHD
A diagnostic producer used to produce detailed X-ray images of the body to detect and reveal the details of internal organ.
Ultrasound is a diagnostic technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the different area of the different areas of the body. 3D images.
4D ultrasound allows live steaming video of the mages, which helps to study the motion of various moving organs of the body like blood flow in various vessels.
The digital X-ray and procedures go well beyond the reduction in time required to produce the X-ray images themselves. Additionally advantages for reduction in radiation, cost due to the elimination of chemical processors, reduction in space requirement that is no dark room is required, and the need to dedicate space for cabinets of analog images is eliminated.
Along with the elimination of chemical processing the digital format allows grater imaging versatility and overall image quality both of which greatly increase the accuracy of patient diagnosis and the quality of care that can be provided.
A Doppler ultrasound can estimate how fast blood flows by measuring the rate of change in its pitch (frequency). During a Doppler ultrasound, a technician trained in ultrasound imaging (sonographer)
A Doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive test that can be used to estimate the blood flow through your blood vessels by bouncing high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off circulating red blood cells. A regular ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images.
