How does it work?
Magnetic resonance imaging, also known as MRI or MRT (magnetic resonance tomography) is a method for creating three-dimensional images of the body without using X-rays. The technology uses strong magnetic fields combined with high-frequency electromagnetic waves in the VHF waveband. Using magnetic resonance imaging, we create a series of slices of the human body, which then allow us to make assessments of the condition of soft tissues (e.g. organs, sinews, blood vessels).
When do we need to use MRI?
MRI is a radiological procedure used for a wide range of ailments in such disciplines as neurology, ear, nose and throat medicine, surgery, orthopaedics and sports medicine, oncology, internal medicine, urology and preventative medicine.
How is the procedure carried out?
MRI is an entirely safe and harmless procedure. At our clinic we use a modern 1.5-Tesla imaging device, whose compact design offers the patient maximum comfort. The brightly lit examination room and the option of listening to music or chatting with the technician during the procedure bear witness to the importance we attach to your comfort during MRI examinations. The duration of each procedure will depend on the medical issue and the organ being examined, but will generally range between 15 and 30 minutes. When investigating inflammations and tumours, the diagnostic process is optimized by injecting a contrast medium into a vein.
