Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
The new phenomenon of imaging system is “MRI” which stands for “Magnetic Resonance Imaging”. This kind of imaging creates the most accurate and sharp images. Nowadays, this kind of imaging is one of the most important diagnosis methods in medical field especially in neurology and surgery fields and is spreading in other medical fields very rapidly. Some of the most important imaging techniques that are done by this imaging system are as follows:
e1- MRI (Imaging from all parts of the body and organs)
a2- MRA & MRV (Angiography with injection & without injection from all vessels of the body, brain, neck, aorta, renal & organ arteries)
q3- MRCP (Imaging from biliary ducts without injection)
q4- MRU (Imaging from renal and urinary tract)
Since any kinds of harmful rays such as X-ray are used in MRI imaging, therefore, it is not harmful for patients and they can do their MRI imaging safe and sound.
Shiraz Central Hospital is the first private hospital that obtained MRI system in Shiraz and now two modern GE MRI systems are running at this hospital one of which is a 1.5 Tesla GE MRI system.
