What is MRI Cardiac With Contrast?
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan test uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D images. The MRI Cardiac with contrast uses a contrast dye that is injected into a patient before having the MRI scan. Contrast agents helps to improve the visibility of internal body structures in MRI. It is a radiation less test which is used to detect or monitor cardiac disease and to evaluate the hearts structure and function in patients with heart diseases. These images can be stored on an electronic device which can be printed on a film. The complete procedure takes about 40-60 minutes.
Why is MRI Cardiac With Contrast done?
- To diagnose functioning, blood flow through valves, structures of the heart valves and pericardium (fluid which surrounds the heart)
- To evaluate coronary artery disease like blockage or limited blood flow to the muscles of heart
- To monitor the advancement of stages of the heart diseases of the patient
- To find out presence of any cancer (tumor/cyst/abnormal growth) in the heart or its surrounding soft tissues
Mahajan Imaging has a history of bringing new technologies into the private sector in the country for example standing weight bearing MRI, Cone Beam Dental CT, functional MRI, MR tractography, MR mammography, CT coronary angiography, 4D ultrasound with tomography, PET-CT, CT-guided robotic biopsy, digital mammography and DEXA bone densitometry. Continuing the said trend, they have recently installed Asia’s 1st Silent MRI technology and India’s first Dual Energy Spectral CT Scanner with the most...
