Extremely sensitive to evidence of blood staining and permanent bruising that occurs in trauma that cannot be identified using standard MRI procedures.
Demonstrates evidence of Traumatic Axonal Injury (TAI) that cannot be identified on standard Brain MRI sequences.
By comparing the Patients brain to a standardized Age and Gender matched database, it can detect evidence of Post Traumatic Volume Loss indicative of Traumatic Brain Injury.
A Magnetic Resonance Angiogram (MRA) is a type of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan that uses magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of blood vessels inside the body. MRA can provide information that cannot be obtained from an X-Ray, Ultrasound, or Computed Tomography (CT) scan.
Weight-Bearing MRI studies are widely used for simulation of standing position during Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Computed Tomography (CT) scans. The compression device stimulates the lumbar segmental alignment change from supine to standing posture in L1/2, L2/3, L3/4, L4/5.
Arthrography is radiographic examination of a joint after the injection of a dye-like contrast material and/or air to outline the soft tissue and joint structures on the images.
MARS (Metal Artifact Reduction Sequences) can be performed if the patient has a metallic orthopedic implant or braces in the area that needs to be scanned. MARS sequences allow visualization of pathology and anatomy closer to the metal, whereas on typical MRI sequences, there is too much distortion and signal theft.
