This study uses magnetic fields and radiofrequency waves to obtain images of the body. Our equipment is the MRI 1.5 – Wide bore (wider than the norm) so that the patient feels comfortable, less claustrophobic and the study can be carried out in less time.
This study evaluates blood vessels using blood flow, without and with injected contrast, using MRI equipment. It is done in the following parts: brain, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis and legs.
MRI Arthrogram (Arthrogram)
The study provides us with images of ligaments, tendons and cartilage, enhancing the bones. The contrast is injected directly into the joint, through the skin. The following areas of the body are generally evaluated: shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle.
Prostate Multiparametric MRI
It is the best technique to evaluate prostate cancer or infections and allows for other abnormalities to be detected. Contrast is injected intravenously to obtain accurate images, using the international standardized protocol known as PI-RADS for evaluation of the prostate. The procedure lasts approximately 60 minutes.
Breast MRI (Breast)
This is mostly done to detect breast cancer and evaluate its size. It is usually combined with other studies such as a mammography and sonomammography in order to make a better diagnosis. The study lasts approximately 45 minutes.
