MR stands for magnetic resonance. 70% of the human body consists of water. When hydrogen atoms get radio wave in a powerful magnetic field, it emits various kinds of energy (signal). The Computer picks up those signals and calculates, them and finally reconstructs an image of the body. Our hospital has two 3.0T MR and two 1.5T MR.
3.0T
Magnetic strength of 3.0T MR is the double of 1.5T MR.
1.5T
DIFFUSION WEIGHTED IMAGE (DWI)
It’s normally difficult to get an image of cerebral infarction at the acute stage by normal MRI. However, DWI makes it possible.
MRi DWI DWI enables to image the information from water molecule movement in brain tissue. It’s helpful to find cerebral infarction in the acute stage (within three hours of the start of symptoms), cystic lesion etc.

WEAK POINTS OF MR
MR is excellent at diagnosing diseases, but it has some weak points at the same time.
金属があると・・・・・
This MRI was taken with hairpin on forehead. A metal on or in the body prevent from taking a right image because metal disrupts the magnetic field.
検査中に動くと・・・・・
Movement of the body during examination also prevent from taking a right image.

MR examination is weak on metal and movement of the body, however recent MRI gets lower influence by body’s movement.

If you can’t lie quiet because of pain, you can choose to use pain relief product. Please ask a staff to get it.
