Can anyone explain MRI / nmr history?

Can anyone explain MRI / nmr history?

MRI was invented: By several teams of docs. One doctor invented a very slow method - which took 24 hours to image a glass of water. The other team in 1981 which received the nobel prize was headed by dr. Lauterbur and he used something called fourier transformation which mathematically speeds up the reconstruction of the image to make an image in minute instead of hours. We now can imaging in seconds. ...Read more

What is a lipid nmr? When is it needed?

MRI of LDL/check-up.: This profile is a special test that uses nuclear magnetic resonance or NMR to observe the amount and type (s) of your LDL particles in your body, along with vldl and hdl. With this, your doctor can make more accurate treatment decisions. Since about 50% of heart attacks occur in those with good readings, and the risk goes up with issues like diabetes, and high blood pressure, it is wise to do it. ...Read more

I do not understand the shorthand of dr alvis. What is cv ds, nmol/l, , nmr particle test cholesterol wrong issue?

I do not understand the shorthand of dr alvis. What is cv ds, nmol/l, , nmr particle test cholesterol wrong issue?

Medspeak!: Medical abbreviations, while useful and possibly giving a "clubby" feel to docs' discussions, can be counterproductive to patient understanding. In this case cv ds means cardiovascular disease; nmol/l is nanomoles per liter (measure of concentration of a molecule in the blood); NMR particle test checks for other subtypes of LDL which may cause arterial disease even when ldl-c is normal. ...Read more

Can m.R.I. Or n.M.R. Scan detect all prevailing infections in the human body?

MRI Scans: Mri scans are performed on isolated parts of the body for specific reasons. If a physician is concerned for brain, spine or joint infections, than a targed MRI is a great test.

Is an nmr lipid panel a valuable tool to better assess heart disease risk compared to a basic lipid panel?

Is an nmr lipid panel a valuable tool to better assess heart disease risk compared to a basic lipid panel?

Yes - Based on Data: LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) is the traditional measure of LDL quantity. NMR measures LDL particle number (LDL-P). When LDL-C and LDL-P differ CHD risk tracks with LDL-P not LDL-C. Expert groups advocate use of LDL-P to judge response to therapy and guide adjustment of therapy. New data shows adjusting therapy to achieve low LDL-P results in fewer CVD events versus statin treatment to low LDL-C levels. ...Read more
