With Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), your health care professional will gain a closer look at your body’s internal structures. This non-invasive procedure relies on magnets, radiofrequency waves and powerful computers to produce precise, detailed images of areas like your intervertebral discs and spinal cord.
Compared to traditional cylindrical-shaped MRIs, open MRIs are more spacious. This diagnostic imaging machine is open on three sides and won’t surround your entire body. If you are claustrophobic or can’t use a closed design, open MRIs deliver the same quality imaging in a more comfortable and accessible alternative. Our new open bore MRI machines have a wider opening which allows a more diverse population to be scanned comfortably and other new technologies:
When you visit Complete Care Diagnostic Imaging, you’ll undergo advanced brain scanning techniques if we suspect you have a traumatic brain injury.
DTI, sometimes called DT-MRI, is short for Diffusion Tensor Magnetic Resonance Imaging. This innovative diagnostic technique is a variation on the standard MRI that is used to create images of internal organs through magnetic images.
The DTI isolates water movement within the brain, which allows doctors to pinpoint regions that are not functioning properly. Traditional MRI scans cannot highlight these abnormalities because they do not have the capability of tracking water molecules in the same way. DTI scans allow doctors to pinpoint regions that require attention.
SWI is a technological advancement that enhances the contrast in MRIs to detect the differences and characteristics of tissues in the brain. It is particularly useful for the visualization of veins in the brain, which is helpful to see traumatic brain injury or bleeding after an auto accident.
If you’ve experienced personal injury from an auto accident, you may not know what to expect from your MRI experience, especially if it’s your first time undergoing diagnostic imaging.
