Injecting the contrast agent into the joint often provides additional information not found on a regular study. It may show small tears or holes that would be missed ...Read more

Can labrum tear (fray) be seen conclusively on MRI without contrast? How about during an arthroscopic surgery of shoulder? MRI with contrast needed?

Can labrum tear (fray) be seen conclusively on MRI without contrast? How about during an arthroscopic surgery of shoulder?  MRI with contrast needed?

Labrum tears: can be seen on routine MRIs is they are large or severe. MRI with intrarticular contrast(MR arthrogram) is much more accurate, particularly for smaller tears. Arthroscopy will show labral tears. ...Read more

Ct scan, mri, nuclear medicine imaging, ivp scan, how are they different?

Ct scan, mri, nuclear medicine imaging, ivp scan, how are they different?

Quite different: Ct involves xray type radiation with cross sectional imaging in transaxial, sagittal, and coronal projections. Nuclear medicine, internal irradiation either injected intravenously, inhaled, ingested, injected subcutaneously.Ivp uses injection of contrast material for visualization of kidneys and bladder with x-ray. Mr imaging uses no ionizing radiation magnetic fields to generate x-sectional images. ...Read more

Would a brain MRI without contrast show everything?

No: Imaging studies do not show "everything". For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Is this reliability of MRI brain and mr angiography better?

Depends: I believe you are asking which is better, MRI of the brain or mr angiography. An MRI of the brain details the structure and morphology of the brain as well as whether there is evidence of infarct (stroke), demyelination (ms) or a mass. Mr angiography details the arterial vessels to evaluate for aneurysm or vascular disease. They are often performed together. ...Read more

What would an mr venography show that a brain MRI does not?

What would an mr venography show that a brain MRI does not?

Vein Thrombosis : Brain mr angiogram (mra) and mr venography (mrv) are specifically designed to examine your blood vessels. Mrv is often used to examine the intracranial venous system, particularly in the evaluation of dural sinus thrombosis. Mri in conjunction with mrv is both sensitive and specific enough to provide the best noninvasive method of diagnosing cerebral venous thrombosis. ...Read more
