Magnetic Resonance imaging (MRI) Head

Magnetic  resonance imaging (MRI)is a diagnostic test to take description of the body parts and give information more advance then x-ray, ultrasound and CT scan. For head mri they do with same mri machine with using a imaging test with powerful magnetic and radio waves to create the picture of the brain.
Mri procedure doesn’t use radiation, only lie of your head inside the machine scanner using strong magnet then it will show pathologic problem such as tissue damage, disease, infection, inflammation or tumor. In the same time the result can be store in the computer and film or CD can be made.

Maybe in some cases, injection of dye or contrast material need, to see detail pictures such as in vascular study.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head is done to:

Look for the cause of headaches.

MRI of head can help to find the source of headache, stroke or blood vessel problem in the head. It will show in the picture an aneurysm or abnormal blood vessels formation during birth its called an arteriovenous malformation. Check source of bleeding , head injury, brain diseases such as Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, or Alzheimer’s disease. Check retention fluid in the brain called hydrocephaly, look for tumor, infection, an abscess, or figure conditions of the brain or brain stem, such as encephalitis or meningitis. Check the eyes, the nerves from the eyes of the brain (optic nerves), the ears, and the nerves from the ears of the brain (auditory nerves).

How the Test is Performed

You may be asked to wear a hospital gown or clothing without metal fasteners (such as sweatpants and a t-shirt). Certain types of metal can cause blurry images, and you will lie on a narrow table, which slides into a large tunnel-shaped scanner. Some exams require a special dye (contrast). The dye is usually given before the test through a vein (IV) in your hand or forearm. The dye helps the radiologist see certain areas more clearly. During the MRI, the person who operates the machine will watch you from another room. The test most often lasts 30 - 60 minutes, but it may take longer.

How to Prepare for the Test

You may be asked not to eat or drink anything for 4 - 6 hours before the scan. Tell your doctor if you are afraid of close spaces (have claustrophobia). You may receive medicine to help you feel sleepy and less anxious, or your doctor may suggest an "open" MRI, in which the machine is not as close to the body.

Before the test, tell your health care provider if you have:

Brain aneurysm clips
Certain types of artificial heart valves
Heart defibrillator or pacemaker
Inner ear (cochlear) implants
Kidney disease or dialysis (you may not be able to receive contrast)
Recently placed artificial joints
Certain types of vascular stents
Worked with sheet metal in the past (you may need tests to check for metal pieces in your eyes)

The MRI contains strong magnets. Metal objects are not allowed into the room with the MRI scanner. This includes:

Pens, pocketknives, and eyeglasses
Items such as jewelry, watches, credit cards, and hearing aids
Pins, hairpins, metal zippers, and similar metallic items
Removable dental work

How the Test Will Feel

An MRI exam causes no pain. If you have difficulty lying still or are very nervous, you may be given a medicine to relax you. Too much movement can blur MRI images and cause errors. The table may be hard or cold, but you can request a blanket or pillow. The machine produces loud thumping and humming noises when turned on. You can wear ear plugs to help reduce the noise. An intercom in the room allows you to speak to someone at any time. Some MRIs have televisions and special headphones that you can help you pass the time or block the scanner noise. There is no recovery time, unless you were given a medicine to relax. After an MRI scan, you can go back to your normal diet, activity, and medications.

G.E. OpenSpeed MRI Scan Machine 0.7 T

G.E. OpenSpeed MRI Scan Machine 0.7 T

The G.E Open mri scanner machine is suitable for patient who has claustrophobia, Open MRI scanners have been developed for people who are anxious or obese or for examination of small parts of the body, such as the extremities (knee, shoulder). In addition, some systems offer imaging in different positions and sequences of movements. The basic technology of an open MRI machine is similar to that of a traditional MRI device. The major difference for the patient is that instead of lying in a narrow tunnel, the imaging table has more space around the body so that the magnet does not completely surround the person being tested.
The advantage of  G.E Open Speed MRI Scan Machine
Eliminates the anxiety of a noisy, narrow, closed MRI scanner.
Ideal for all patients including claustrophobic, elderly and pediatric patients.
Allows hands on contact at all times.
Children and adults can hold their loved ones hands for comfort.

The G.E. OpenSpeed 0.7T High-Field Open MRI takes on the architecture of the traditional (both sides opened) Open MRI scanner. Most Open MRI scanners operate at a lower magnetic field strength and receive a lower signal from the body. High-field MRI scanners rely on the tubular or cylinder form construction to produce strong magnetic fields. By using superconducting technology, the magnetic field strength of the G.E. OpenSpeed High-Field Open MRI has been increased to 0.7 Tesla. This is two to three times stronger than the traditional open MRI systems operating today. With the combination of high-performance surface coils and powerful computer processing power, the performance of this scanner is equivalent to that of a 1.0T High-Field MRI system. As opposed to the traditional open MRI systems, the images on the G.E. OpenSpeed 0.7 High-Field MRI have a higher quality and are done in a shorter time (3 times faster than most other Open MRI systems).
G.E. OpenSpeed MRi Scanner Specifications:
  • Patient weight limit of 227 kg (500 lbs)
  • 0.7 Tesla magnet (length: 175 cm (5’9”))
  • Bore (tube) diameter 212 cm(W) x 250 cm(H)
  • Magnet weight incl. Helium only approx. (8,256 kg (18,200 lbs))

Toshiba Vantage Titan 1.5T MRI Scan Machine

Toshiba Vantage Titan 1.5T MRI Scan Machine

The Vantage Titan is a large open bore MRI Scan Machine that improves patient care with its reduced noise, extended FOV and increased homogeneity. This machine has an open bore that is 18% larger than other 1.5T systems with a 71cm aperture. This MRI Scan machine offers one of the largest and widest open bores available. It is also one of the most powerful MRI machine that is available with a 30/130 gradient platform. This MRI machine has a field-of-view size 55 x 55 x 50 cm that is very unique in size which produces high-quality images without compromising homogeneity or overall imaging performance. Patients who are sensitive to contrast agents now have the option available to have a contrast free exam.

Next to the fact that a larger bore can accommodate larger patients, it reduces the claustrophobic experience dramatically. This is not only caused by the enlargement of the bore diameter seen from the isocenter, but through the enlagement of the bore the position of the tabletop can be lowered as well. Through this effect the space for the patient is increased in two directions.
