Neuroradiologis - voted one of the top docs in Radiology in the State of DE. Top Doc 2012 in Delaware Today. I am here to try to answer your questions about radiology and neuroradiology and . Also to promite two concepts the quality of MRI matters and the safety of the contrast material is important. So many doctors misunderstand the proper use of MRI for various diseases. Did you know that a simple MRI study can predict whether or not you will have a heart attack in the following year? Did you know that 25% of patients over age 60 have rotator cuff disease or small tears which need to be treated. Did you know that we can diagnosis superficial temporal arteritis non invasively using 3T MRI. Did you know that 3T MRI is the only MRI that is 100% sensitive for detection of breast cancer. I have 30 years of experience doing MRIs to share with all people including doctors and I want to help people with that experience. I truly want to answer your questions about MRI and how to use it properly. Prostate MRI and MRI guided biopsy is going to be a important new use of MRI. Also diffusion tensor imaging and quantitative MRI is going to help us understand brain trauma. So called connectivity studies will help us study parkinsons disease and also autism. You need to ask why MRI can help you and it does not use ionizing radiation. Safe and detailed MRI is what we need. 3T MRI has more contrast and more detail and is twice as fast as MRI done at 1.5T. You should always try to get a 3T MRI if you can. This can really help you as it often sees up to 50% more detail and lesions - depending on how you run the scanner. The contrast dose can also be lowered to 1/2 dose safely because T1 contrast is lengthened and therefore you see the contrast basically twice as well. For people who are concerned about any use of contrast - using super safe contrast at half dose is what we have done for 8 years in Newark Delaware. We even have Eovist contrast in stock.
