FAQ's on MRI and CTScan:
|Q: What exactly is MRI?
|MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Without using traditional X-ray imaging, MRI allows doctors to see inside the body to diagnose and identify possible medical conditions. An MRI simply samples signals from the water that makes up your body. Specialized antennae create highly defined images that can be used to make diagnoses. You’ll discover that MRI testing is painless and much quicker than you think. In fact, you’ll probably be very comfortable as you lie on the padded table. |
|The accuracy and speed of the latest MRI scanners means that you will be done quickly. But keep in mind that an MRI isn’t for everyone. So be sure to inform your physician if you have: a pacemaker, aneurysm clips in the brain, a shunt with Tele-sensor, inner ear implants, metal fragments in one or both eyes, implanted spinal cord stimulators, or if you’re pregnant. Many of your questions about MRI are answered here. But should you have any other questions or concerns, please consult your doctor.|

|Q: WHAT IS COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CT OR CAT SCAN)?
|CT is an x-ray examination performed by a special scanner and computer. It provides highly detailed images of the body’s tissues and vessels than conventional x-rays. The CT scanner takes pictures (images) of the body in multiple cross-sections or slices, similar to a loaf of bread. The computer collects the data and generates images that are interpreted by a Radiologist (a medical doctor who specializes in using medical imaging technology to diagnose and treat disease). Many CT exams are very quick and can be completed in a matter of few minutes.|
|Q: HOW IS CT USED?
|A CT scan is a painless, non-invasive method to view the health of tissues and vessels throughout the body. It diagnoses diseases and disorders of the digestive system organs, urinary system, appendix, liver, spleen, pancreas and kidneys. It also locates or confirms the presence of tumors, identifies sources of pain, and diagnoses vascular disorders that can lead to stroke, heart attack, or kidney failure. CT examinations aid in planning radiation treatments for tumors and guiding biopsies and other minimally invasive procedures.|
