How important is MRI?

It is one of the most important diagnostic methods all designed so far. The importance is given to him because it is not an invasive method and need not apply radiation to take pictures, and the second is for the comfort of the patient and the reliability of the procedures.

 

What does the digital resonance 3 Tesla?

3 Teslas resonance, we have in this service, it is a fully digitized resonance, which are three aspects that are important review. The first is the comfort of the patient and the procedures take very little time. The second would be the reliability in terms of terms of image, and the third also attached to the comfort of the patient, we have seen that this resonance is virtually no a major impediment in the rest of the resonances is the complete absence of claustrophobia .

 

What benefits the patient?

The benefit of patients, other than what we talked about in terms of comfort, many. First, the patient benefits in all studies conducted in neurology, ie in neuroradiology. The second, the benefits we get on the diagnosis in all breast pathology. The third would be the diagnosis of cardiac images that are absolutely spectacular. And the fourth would be the prostate pathology, all prostate tumors are diagnosed near very high reliability, over 90% of tumors are diagnosed by this procedure.
