MRI- An Imaging Study To Diagnose The Diseases

Magnetic resonance imaging is a modern method for studying the structure, condition, and function of internal organs. It is based on the measurement of electromagnetic waves emanating from body tissues. These signals are transmitted to a computer, which decodes them and converts them into an image. The obtained data is analyzed and evaluated by a specialist conducting an MRI.

Modern equipment allows obtaining a three-dimensional image of the internal organs so that the study has high information content. MRI helps to identify a large number of diseases that are not so accurately diagnosed using other methods.

MRI has great advantages over invasive and radiographic methods, as it is a safe and comfortable procedure. Due to this, the study is used in the diagnosis of diseases of many organs and systems:

  • Brain;
  • Vessels of the neck and brain;
  • Jaw and temporomandibular joint;
  • Joints;
  • Spinal cord;
  • Spine;
  • Abdominal organs;
  • Pelvic organs;
  • Respiratory system;
  • Endocrine system;
  • Lymphatic system;
  • Reproductive system.

One of the most common areas of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of diseases of the nervous system. MRI of the brain allows detecting tumors and determining the stage of their development, diagnosing problems with vessels, multiple sclerosis, and other pathologies.

Many patients are interested in - with MRI of the brain, radiation occurs, and is it dangerous? What dose of radiation does the body receive during the research? Is MRI Hazardous to Health?

MRI Radiation Level

Unlike X-rays and computed tomography (CT), patients receive a zero dose of radiation during an MRI scan, since this study is not based on ionizing radiation, but on electromagnetic effects.

The effect of a magnetic resonance imager is comparable to that of a cell phone or microwave. MRI done by MRI test labs in Delhi does not cause irregularities in the structure, condition, and function of tissues and organs, being at the same time a highly accurate diagnostic method.

Therefore, you can be sure that there is no radiation during an MRI scan of the brain.

Magnetic resonance imaging in oncopathology?

Patients with oncologic MRI are prescribed with the use of a contrast agent - to increase the information content of the study: this allows a detailed study of the tumor and its vascular network. Due to the high precision and diagnosis, the most effective treatment is prescribed.

The absence of irradiation provides the possibility of using MRI for cancer patients with confirmed diagnoses of various malignant tumors, which are not recommended for X-ray methods. X-ray and computed tomography due to ionizing radiation harm the tissues of the body: cause changes in DNA and adversely affect the already existing pathological processes. Electromagnetic effects during MRI are safe for both tumors and healthy tissues and organs.

How often can I do magnetic resonance imaging?

In the absence of contraindications, MRI may be prescribed - depending on the disease and the characteristics of its course - as often as necessary to develop an effective treatment plan or to correct it. Since the procedure is safe for the body, it can be carried out with a minimum time interval.

The frequency of an MRI can only be determined by a doctor. If there is an urgent need or in accordance with the developed plan of dynamic observation, the study is carried out several times in one day.

Migraine and MRI : Do They have Any Relation?

Did you know that 12% of the population suffers from a migraine? That's right, and of this percentage 80% are women, and 2% suffer it chronically (considered that way, when they feel pain for a minimum of 15 days a month).

A migraine: what is it and what are its causes?

A migraine also called hemicranias, or migraine is a disease whose main symptom is a severe headache and may be followed by nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to light or sounds. Also as stated by the World Health Organization (WHO), migraine is considered one of the 20 most disabling diseases, because, during pain crises, patients feel so affected that they feel unable to perform any common task, whether of work, social or family nature.

As for the causes, it is true that migraine can be hereditary. However, it can occur for any of the following reasons:

  • Changes in hormone levels during the menstrual cycle of women or with the use of contraceptive pills
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Consumption of alcohol
  • Exercise or other physical stress
  • Loud noises or bright lights
  • Odors and strong perfumes
  • Smoking or being in contact with smoke
  • Stress and anxiety

Brain MRI and migraine:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and headache have more relationship than we can think, and that with the realization of this imaging test you can find evidence of changes in the brain in people suffering from a migraine.

Through this study, it was intended to check if there are anatomical changes in the brains of patients with a migraine, and for this purpose, magnetic resonance images of high spatial resolution of the mind of healthy and sick people were made.

The results of the study showed that there is damage to the gray matter of patients with a migraine. Also, these alterations are directly related to the years of evolution of the disease that is the more years of evolution of the disease in the patient, the higher the damage to the brain.

The MRI scan center in New Delhi continue to investigate in this area, not only to deepen on this subject but to know what the most effective treatment to combat this pathology is.

A migraine - a neurological disease in which pain is most often localized in one half of the head, usually in the frontotemporal region. The patient, for no apparent reason, experiences long, painful paroxysmal headaches. As a rule, they are not associated with head injuries, stroke or a brain tumor- the appearance of a migraine is most often associated with changes in the work of the vessels, which are best visualized during MR-angiography.

If the attending physician wants to exclude or confirm the presence of a brain tumor, as a possible cause of a headache, the patient may be assigned an MRI Test with contrast enhancement. In the presence of neoplasm, MR imaging allows to identify, localize, and evaluate the structure, size, and relationship of the tumor with the surrounding tissues and midline structures of the brain. One of the advantages of the MRI method is the absence of harmful ionizing radiation, which makes the study entirely safe for the patient's health.
