MRI 3.0 TESLA
New-Generation Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanner
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic imaging technique that uses a combination of a strong magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of internal organs. MRI can obtain images of the brain and nervous system, cardiovascular system and musculoskeletal system without introducing any instrument into the patient’s body.
A 3.0 Tesla MRI scanner generates diagnostic images at 60% higher resolution compared to previous-generation 1.5 Tesla MRI scanners that are in use in most hospitals, thanks to a magnetic field that is twice as strong. This makes 3.0 Tesla scanners ideal for diagnosing cardiovascular abnormalities, especially abnormalities of cardiac tissues, allowing doctors to rapidly and accurately diagnose the condition.
“Taking MRI diagnostics to a new level of resolution and accuracy and providing radiation-free examination.”
- Compared to older models, the diagnostic display of the 3.0 Tesla machine provides two times the resolution and detail. This allows doctors to more clearly see the differences between tissues, nerves and blood vessels and enables more accurate diagnoses, especially of diseases of the bones, brain, heart and cancer of various organs.
- The device is designed to reduce procedure time while still ensuring high-definition imaging (high resolution?). This means patients do not have to hold their breath for long periods.
- MRI scanners do not use x-rays, so patients do not need to worry about experiencing x-ray side effects.
- The device enables doctors to assess symptoms and risk 50% faster, helping them to quickly determine a treatment plan.
- The device is suitable for patients with cardiac tissue abnormalities; patients seeking an assessment of their cardiac performance; patients with heart-valve disease,and adults and children with congenital cardiovascular anomalies, both pre- and post-treatment.
- Suitable for stroke patients, allowing doctors to clearly see symptoms and accurately prescribe treatment.
- Suitable for patients with neurological dysfunction presenting as unsteady gait, weakness in the limbs, poor memory or shooting pain down the leg.
- Suitable for non-emergency diagnosis of tissues and internal organs, especially in patients with symptoms involving the bones, bone marrow, joints or brain vessels and nerves.
3.0 Tesla MRI produces high-resolution diagnostic imaging. Compared to previous-generation 1.5 Tesla devices in use in most hospitals, 3.0 Tesla MRI provides up to 60% higher resolution thanks to twice-as-powerful magnetic field. It is an ideal tool for detecting cardiovascular abnormalities, and especially abnormalities of cardiac tissues, allowing your doctors to rapidly and accurately diagnose your condition.
MRI scanners work by generating an electromagnetic field around the patient being scanned and monitoring the energy changes in the magnetic field without using x-rays. To date, there is no evidence that exposure to electromagnetic waves causes any adverse health effects. An MRI scan therefore offers an attractive alternative for patients who wish to avoid the potential risk from exposure to x-rays. It is also suitable for patients who need to opt for a device with low side effects, either because they are allergic to contrast medium, have kidney failure, or are elderly and unable to hold their breaths for long periods.
The spacious cylindrical design of the scanner means it can accommodate larger patients and better alleviate the fear of confined spaces in patients with claustrophobic anxiety. The device is simple to use: You simply lie down in the “tunnel” part for 30-90 minutes to allow the device to capture and process images for review by your doctor and radiologist.
Compared to previous-generation models, 3.0 Tesla MRI scanners produce higher resolution and higher definition images, have twice as powerful magnetic field, and provide more visual signals in less time. The result is shorter scanning time, which is of great value to the patient’s service experience.
Please be aware that scanning with a 3.0 Tesla MRI machine may not be suitable for you if you are pregnant or breastfeeding; have a metal medical implant; have certain type of artificial heart valve or neurostimulation device; have had a stent implanted for less than 8 weeks; have a kidney filtration rate of less than 30% of normal capacity; have a hearing aid implant; or suffer from claustrophobia. If you meet one of the above criteria, please consult with a specialist to assess your risk before undergoing an MRI examination.
