Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a super conductive electromagnet, radio waves and sophisticated computer software to generate and enhance images. The result is an unprecedented view of internal organs, body structure and systems. Anatomi Imaging utilizes high-quality hardware and software to provide doctors with the detailed images they need to make an accurate diagnosis. MRI provides excellent images without radiation exposure.

What to expect during your magnetic resonance exam

The technologist will constantly be in touch with you via intercom. You’ll lie down on the MRI table, which will move into the scanner. During the exam, you may feel a slight vibration and hear a series of rhythmic knocking or hammering sounds. This is all normal. Some MRI exams require the injection of a contrast dye, which assists the Radiologist in obtaining optimal images to make a diagnosis. Most exams take about an hour.

MRI with Excite HD PROPELLER (for patients with difficulty lying still)

Now it’s possible to get excellent image quality on moving patients. GE’s Excite HD PROPELLER software allows us to “freeze” patient motion and provide useful diagnostic images of pediatric, elderly and confused patients.

Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)

MRA is a special type of magnetic resonance imaging that allows doctors to see blood vessels and blood flow in specific areas of the body. It provides a safe, noninvasive alternative to angiography.

Breast MRI

Breast MRI allows doctors to see what the inside of the breast looks like without having to do surgery or flatten the breast (as with a mammogram). Breast MRI has no known health hazards. MRI can provide images of dense breasts (as found in younger women) and implants.

What to expect during your breast MRI

You’ll lie on your stomach with both breasts hanging freely into a cushioned recess containing a breast coil receiver. The bed moves into the opening of the scanner, and you’ll be asked to lie still for up to 15 minutes at a time while images are acquired. Total exam time is usually an hour or less.

Cardiac MRI

Cardiac MRI help doctors detect blockages in blood vessels, as well as other conditions that can contribute to heart disease, coronary artery disease, vascular disease and stroke. Cardiac imaging can be a fast, effective alternative to more invasive exploratory procedures

Open MRI (for large patients or those with claustrophobia)

While the normal MRI machine has a doughnut shaped scanner with a table that moves through its center, an open MRI machine has a wide, open-sided space between two separate scanner sections. Another option for claustrophobic patients is to receive a sedative before being scanned by a normal MRI machine. Please notify our office if you are claustrophobic, or think you may be. 

PET/CT is located right outside of the Via Christi Cancer Center
