Magnetic Resonance: The Most Reliable and Non-invasive Radiological Method to Diagnose Diseases

At present, Magnetic Resonance (MR) has become the diagnostic test that is most used in clinical practice to diagnose possible injuries, diseases, or abnormalities in different parts of the body.

You can easily find the best clinics by Searching MRI near me on Google or by doing a Google Maps search.

This technique guarantees detailed images of organs and tissues, differentiating those that are healthy and those that are altered. Magnetic Resonance is also a reliable, painless test that does not involve health risks, since it is performed without the need to irradiate.

Magnetic Resonance uses a powerful magnetic field and creates images that show any type of condition: from oncological, neurological, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal pathologies, among other parts of the body. The findings with the Magnetic Resonance technique are fundamental support to help medical professionals make more specific decisions when the patient has a specific pathology or anatomical and physiological disorder.

Currently, Magnetic Resonance is a relevant technique in the diagnosis of breast cancer and prostate cancer to determine the staging of the lesion, since it allows specialists to decide the most appropriate treatment for each patient.

In the case of prostate cancer, it is also possible to make a diagnosis by analyzing the different characteristics of the tissue with the Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance technique. It is not invasive and only a contrast injection is required to obtain the best sequences. It is one of the best tests for diagnosis since in many cases it avoids performing unnecessary biopsies in a high percentage of patients.

Likewise, Magnetic Resonance is also a fundamental support for brain injuries such as brain anomalies, tumors or vascular changes, and allows determining the severity and location of the injuries. An MRI scan of the brain can even detect the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s.

An MRI may not be for everyone. And although the test times have been reduced to around 30 minutes, the patient needs to be calm and immobile inside the machine while the exam is performed. People who are claustrophobic or have high anxiety symptoms have the alternative of Open MRI, which allows greater tolerance, but there is the drawback that it is not available for all medical tests.

MRI offers enormous and reliable potential for the diagnosis of a type of disease that other imaging techniques cannot offer. The images have a clear and detailed resolution of the possible lesions, even of those smallest parts, and from any plane that is required. The exact and uniform description of the findings with this technique allows a very reliable interpretation of the different pathologies.

Hi my name’s Sarah. I'm a lifestyle blogger. I live in North Cornwall in a small village in the UK by the city. I started blogging as an outlet for something to do not that long ago. Although I'm young, and don't have a ton of experience in life, I don't think that disqualifies me to write about life and lifestyle subjects, so that's what I set out here today in my debut blog.
