Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used for various body scannings in which it uses a large magnet and radio waves. MRI scanning is essential when trying to detect brain tumours, traumatic brain injury, developmental anomalies, multiple sclerosis, stroke, dementia, infection, and the causes of headache.
Our health care department uses an MRI for a variety of scannings from tumours to ligament tears. MRIs are mainly used for brain and spinal cord examination. For an MRI scan, you will be asked to lie on a table that goes under a tunnel-like machine. MRI tests can last anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes. You are to stay still while being scanned and discard any sort of accessorize or metal you may be wearing. You have to let your examiner know about any past surgeries, current pregnancy, or any other health-related issues you might have. The health care worker might even provide you with earplugs since the machine can be very loud.
Now, while MRI scans are by far the most effective and precise mode of screening, it can be extremely cost-ineffective. And for some conditions like breast cancer at an intermediate level, this test can prove to be exaggerated in requirement of the need. Since this is a 3D view of the organs, a biopsy wouldn’t be necessary either, especially for older and more sensitive patients it eliminates the need for other intrusive procedures like catheterizations. For similar situations, The abbreviated MRI is a shortened version of the standard MRI, consisting of a single early phase dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) series. This is a concept, recently emerged as the possible solution for reducing the cost of MRIs, conducive to the needs.
MRI screening of the brain is a safe and painless procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the brain and the brain stem. An MRI differs from a CAT scan (also called a CT scan or a computed axial tomography scan) because it does not use radiation.
