What is MRI- Chest With Contrast?
An MRI chest creates picture of the chest and its surrounding soft tissues. The images captured during the MRI scan can be stored on an electronic device which is further printed on a film. The MRI scan is radiationless test which uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D multiple images. The whole MRI scan procedure takes about 40-60 minutes. You may be asked to take an oral solution of the radio-contrast agent or be given the same in an injectable form for better images of the internal body structures in the MRI scan.
Why is MRI- Chest With Contrast done?
- To diagnose myocardial perfusion (blood flow pattern to the heart) and myocardial infarction (scarring of the heart muscles due to poor flow or blockage)
- To detect lymphatic, vascular (blood vessels) and pericardial disease (heart sac arond heart)
- To find out tumor/cancer size of the heart (valves), lungs, and blood flow pattern of in the blood vessels of the heart and its chamber
- To evaluate chest bones fracture/damage (ribs, collar bone, vertebrae) and its surrounding soft tissues, lesion of the chest
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...
