ALL INFORMATION ABOUT MRI SCAN, BRAIN MRI SCAN, KNEE MRI SCAN, WHOLE BODY MRI,MRI SCAN SPINE,SIDE EFFECT,BENEFITS,PROCESSING AND MACHINE MRI DETAILS.
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a fairly new technique that has been used since the beginning of the 1980s.
The MRI scan uses magnetic and radio waves, meaning that there is no exposure to X-rays or any other damaging forms of radiation.
Using an MRI scanner, it is possible to make pictures of almost all the tissue in the body. The tissue that has the least hydrogen atoms (such as bones) turns out dark, while the tissue that has many hydrogen atoms
An MRI scan is also able to provide clear pictures of parts of the body that are surrounded by bone tissue, so the technique is useful when examining the brain and spinal cord.
the MRI scan gives very detailed pictures it is the best technique when it comes to finding tumours (benign or malignant abnormal growths) in the brain.
The MRI scan is also able to show both the heart and the large blood vessels in the surrounding tissue.
With an MRI scan it is possible to take pictures from almost every angle, whereas a CT scan only shows pictures horizontally?
here is no ionizing radiation (X-rays) involved in producing an MRI scan. MRI scans are generally more detailed, too. The difference between normal and abnormal tissue is often clearer on the MRI scan than on the CT scan.
hi johns you are exposed to a powerful magnetic field during the MRI scan, it is important not to wear jewellery or any other metal objects.
There are no known dangers or side effects connected to an MRI scan.
Hi poojaanswer of your question about MRI.An MRI scan is a safe and painless test that can provide detailed pictures of organs and other structures inside your body.
MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. An MRI scan uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create pictures, on a computer, of tissues, organs and other structures inside your body.
The MRI scanner is like a tunnel about 1.5 meters long surrounded by a large circular magnet. You lie on a couch which then slides into the scanner. A 'receiving device', like an aerial, is placed behind, or around, the part of the body being examined. This detects the tiny radio signals emitted from your body. When each 'picture' is being taken you need to keep still for a few minutes, otherwise the scan picture may be blurred.
An MRI scan can create clear pictures of most parts of the body. So, it is useful for all sorts of reasons where other tests (such as X-rays) do not give enough information required. It is commonly used to get detailed pictures of the brain and spinal cord,
MRI scans are painless and thought to be safe. MRI scans do not use X-rays so the possible concerns associated with X-ray pictures and CT scans (which use X-rays) are not associated with MRI scans.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan) is a diagnostic test that uses electromagnetic radio waves (i.e., electrical current and magnetism) to produce two- or three-dimensional (2-D or 3-D) computer images of internal body structures such as organs, muscles, bones, and nerves.
Magnetic resonance imaging can be performed on any part of the body and, unlike other imaging procedures (e.g., CT scan, x-ray), does not involve radiation.
MRI produces more detailed images of soft tissue and organs, differentiates between similar tissues more effectively, and produces less detailed images of bone.
The image and resolution produced by MRI is very detailed and the test can be used to detect small structural changes in the body. In some cases, a contrast agent
Yes MRI scan of the brain can also be used to detect strokes, tumors, and aneurysms (widening of a blood vessel).
MRI scan of the spine may be used to evaluate patients with back pain, herniated disks, narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis), and degeneration of the disc spaces between the vertebrae (cervical spondylosis). It can also be used to detect spinal fractures and tumors.
Hi Abhinav, you should know about MRI Scan.A radiologist (physician who specializes in imaging procedures) interprets the results of an MRI scan.
The average cost of MRI SCAN(Knee) in India should be about Rs.4000 - Rs.7000. You might be charged a bit extra in the metropolitan cities however.
Hi please could you advice me on my mri scan , first ill just advice you what happened , i woke 2 wks ago couldnt move, to twitch my foot was so so painfull, though i new that my bladder was filling and i was very uncomfortable i didnt have the sensation to want to go?

High all,Need an MRI scan done in bangers & so wondered if anyone had had one of these done here & if so:where?How much?General experience?
Cost of an MRI scan depends on how much area you need to have looked at.You'd need a physician referral to have it done.Cost of the scan would depend on how much area is scanned.
I actually need a brain MRI scan and have a physician referral..I have tried to find a contact online for the Prachachuen MR Imaging Center but can only find info in Thai..Do you have a contact number for them?
Round One to MRI, then. However, CT is currently staging a counter attack with the arrival of 64 slice CT, despite health care payor misgivings about a reimbursement rate that reflects the clinical capabilities of this technology. 16 slice CT is seen as being the bare minimum requirement to enable the modality to be used in cardiac applications, an area in which MRI has long been seen to be superior. With the advent of 64 slice CT, however, cardiac CT is now seen as a very viable means of examining the heart. The major industry players are currently competing at the very high end of CT, with one vendor offering a system that can capture the heart in 5 beats.
MRI is a long way from throwing in the towel, however. When this analyst has quizzed MRI product managers on this, he has on occasion been greeted with scoffing and the response that MRI will soon categorically trump CT with improved image quality and ever faster scan times.
I agree, it sounds a bit expensive. Mine ran around 7500 baht at Prachachuen MR Imaging Center which included an extra set of the film. I don't remember what the quote at Bum Hosp was, but I do remember it was considerably higher. I wouldn't doubt prices are much lower up cpuntry. Many things tend to be more expensive in BKK.
Here’s a little bit of info for those who might not really understand the differences between MRI and CT scans. While both continue to develop with greater improvements, it’s not a contest between the two instruments. As clinical tools, there are strong advantages and disadvantages to both.
“Unlike CT, MRI does not use radiation. Instead, MRI creates high-quality images through the combination of a magnetic field and radio waves. MRI is much more sensitive to the imaging of the soft tissues of the body than CT.”
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) takes advantage of the natural magnetic properties of the tissues in your body. The machine is a strong magnet that sends radio waves through the body. The magnetic tissues in the body then send a faint radio signal back. The receiver collects all those signals and the computer builds a picture of what is inside. MRI is not used for screening, only for diagnostic use.”
MRI is the clear leader in the brain and spinal visualization. It is usually preferred for trabecular bone (porous center) lesions, for visualizing the soft tissues of joints, and in cases where radiation may be a concern.
Since the OP indicated he needed an MRI for his brain and has a physician's referral, it would appear the MRI is the best choice made by the physician. The patient's physician should also be able to make the appointment where it's decided to have it done.
There is MRI in Korat, but St Mary has no MRI?
Damaged my back in a sports accident. I was referred for an MRI by a Dr. at Bumrungrad. It cost about B14000 for the lower half of my back.
Hello Tilak,Hoping that someone may be able to help me translate this multi-functional word into English. Normally it's not a word I have problems understanding but I have it on a medical report for an MRI scan, and it's under the heading 'Indications' and it's just one word "Bilan."I would understand more if it were 'bilan de ququchose', but just the one word makes me think it's something I don't understand and that my dictionary doesn't help me with.Any ideas?

just to clarify, you want an MRI scan on your knee done here so you can take the results back to your doctor in Australia?
how I would get an MRI scan on my knee? My Aussie doctor needs it when I get back so I can get quicktime knee surgery (sorry, just prefer to get my treatment back home rather than here). If I could organise this bit it will save me time in Australia. Any advice appreciated.
I'd visit a doctor here and have an MRI arranged. They can fax your results to your doctor in Australia.
