What is a cine mri?

What is a cine mri?

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. Cine MRI is helpful in evaluating tissues that move such as the heart, flowing blood, or cerebral spinal fluid. It is occasionally used in evaluating bowel, joint or muscle motion. ...Read more

Mri (Definition)

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

What is a CT cystogram?

What is a CT cystogram?

Two ways: Sometimes, if there is concern for bladder injury, a catheter is placed in bladder and the bladder is filled with contrast prior to ct. However, it can also be done with a high dose contrast ct protocol. The contrast is given IV and ct images of kidneys, ureter and bladder are then obtained. ...Read more

What is a osteophyte formation in the knee mean? What is a hypointense signal mean on a mri? Is this a diagnosis on a mri?

What is a osteophyte formation in the knee mean? What is a hypointense signal mean on a mri?  Is this a diagnosis on a mri?

See answer: Osteophytes are bony spurs – often degenerative in nature. The bright signal intensity on MRI examinations is from hydrogen ions – bony spurs are largely calcium and don’t have significant hydrogen content. See your dr. To determine their significance in your case. ...Read more

What is a pneumoencephalography?

What is a pneumoencephalography?

Outdated exam: Prior to CT and MRI imaging of the brain was very limited. At that time air could be injected into the spinal canal and then would collect in the normal ventricles of the brain and be visible on x-rays of the skull. This stopped being performed decades ago. As a pop culture footnote, a pneumoencephalogram is shown in the movie the Exorcist. ...Read more

How is a CT scan and an MRI different?

MRI vs CT: The main difference is that CT uses ionizing radiation and MRI uses radiowaves (non-ionizing radiation). It is the ionizing radiation that causes injury to the DNA and potential to develop a cancer down the road. In general, CT is good at looking a differences in radiation absorption (x-ray density). MRI is good at looking at subtle chemical differences (water and fat) in tissues. ...Read more

How is a cat scan and an MRI different?

How is a cat scan and an MRI different?

Contrast difference: Ct uses a combination of xrays shot from multiple directions to look at differences in tissue density. Mri uses strong magnetic fields instead of xrays to differentiate tissues and gives much better contrast than ct. Ct is typically used in the acute setting to see if there is blood or major abnormalities. Mri is a more specific exam to differentiate abnormalities such as stroke or tumor. ...Read more
