What Is A Cine Mri
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
Motion sensitive MRI: A cine MRI is a special type of MRI image in which a series of static images are obtained at different times and then played back as a movie.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the difference diagnostically between an MRI and an NMRI? I have tried to understand from Google but came up short.
MRI vs NMRI: They're essentially the same thing, just slightly different terminology, especially when used in the medical field, sort of like CT scan versus the older term CAT scan.
