MRI Scan

MRI Scan Centre in Mysore

Being more detailed and time intensive compared to CT, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the diagnostic imaging facility used to produce detailed images of organs and tissues in the patient’s body. MRI scan uses the magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves, which can potentially produce highly informative diagnostic images of the brain, spinal cord damage, soft tissue injuries, disc bulges, and more. MRI scan creates cross-sectional images similar to that of bread loaves. 3D images can also be seen from various angles through MRI. 

Why is MRI performed? 

MRI is a highly useful imaging test to scan various body parts. The brain, bones, and joints of numerous upper and lower organs can all be studied with MRI technology. Organs, tissues, and skeletal systems are frequently examined and diagnosed with MRI because it is a non-invasive, painless, and highly accurate process. High-resolution images of diverse body sections created by MRI aid in the identification of numerous diseases and ailments. 

Here are some of how an MRI scan is performed: 

  • Brain MRI

MRI is widely used to perform imaging tests in the brain and spinal cord areas to diagnose and treat conditions such as Brain Aneurysms, traumatic brain injuries, tumours, strokes, spinal cord disorders, multiple sclerosis and more. Functional MRI is a particular MRI type that is helpful in assessing brain damage from injuries or conditions like Alzheimer’s 

  • Internal Organs MRI

Any abnormalities, disorders, tumours and more in various body organs can be detected by MRI. Kidneys, liver, ovaries, prostate, pancreas, uterus, and more are scanned by MRI. Book an appointment to have the best treatment.

  • Bones and Joints MRI

Bone tumours, soft tissue tumours, disk abnormalities, joint abnormalities, bone infections and more can be detected through a simple MRI scan 

  • Chest MRI

MRI, along with mammography, is used to detect any signs of breast cancer, especially in women who might be at high risk of diseases

  • Heart MRI

MRI in case of heart and blood vessels scanning provides diagnostic information like damage caused by heart attacks, aneurysms, inflammation, blockages, size of the heart’s chambers, the thickness of heart walls and more. 

MRI in the ER 

Though MRI has high potential than CT in producing advanced diagnostic images, CT scan is widely used in ED. Since the CT scan is quick and easy to perform on traumatically injured patients, it is opted considering the vitalness of golden hour. CT is also the best option for stabilising the patient’s condition and quickly increasing the mortality rate. Even in neurological emergencies requiring imaging tests, a CT scan is the preferred assessment. Patients with severe conditions who require further observation and evaluation are admitted to the Emergency Department Observation Unit (EDOU). Even in the case of EDOU patients, MRI is much less likely to be suggested where; instead, advanced imaging tests are performed here. If an emergency MRI is required, your doctor will suggest it to you. Visit our emergency care hospital in Mysore for the best treatment.

Similar to the CT scan, the MRI procedure is painless and usually quick. Your doctor will discuss any abnormalities found based on the MRI report and will recommend a further course of action.
