3T Open MRI - Diagnostic Power
In depth diagnostic insight provided by one of the world's most powerful MRIs.
The beauty of MRI is that unlike CT scans and X Ray, it does not use ionising radiation and is therefore safe.
The strength of a magnetic field in an MRI machine is called a Tesla (T). Most MRI scanners operate at a strength of 1.5 Tesla. So, 3T MRI is twice the normal strength and can generate the highest quality image.
The additional power of 3T is useful for the following reasons:
- Aids with claustrophobia; the shorter size relieves the sense of confinement usually associated with more traditional MRI scanners.
- Shorter examination times.
- Higher resolution detailed images.
- Radiologists can identify smaller lesions and anatomical structures that cannot be seen with traditional MRI.
- Highly sophisticated imaging procedures.
- More accurate diagnosis.
- Reduces risk of distortion, so eliminating need for repeated scans.
The primary factor affecting image quality relative to magnet strength is human body variation. Most bodies are composed of approximately 60% water, some fat, muscle, and organs. This relative body composition can change over time.
Due to variations in tissue composition the strength of scanner required will vary depending on what area is being examined. The 3T MRI is specifically geared for spine and musculo-skeletal images.
