CT is used to diagnose a number of different medical conditions such as strokes, 骨折, or tumors that may not have been seen by other routine studies. Bolivar Medical Center uses 64-slice CT Scanner technology, which images cross-sectional slices of the body, creating an exceptionally clear, 详细的图片.
Bolivar Medical Center uses technology to "see" inside the body in order for doctors to find certain diseases or abnormal conditions. MRI does not rely on the type of radiation (i.e., ionizing radiation) used for an x-ray or computed tomography (CT) scan. The MRI examination requires specialized equipment that uses a powerful, constant magnetic field, rapidly changing local magnetic fields, 射频能量, and dedicated equipment including a powerful computer to create very clear pictures of internal body structures.
During the MRI examination, the patient is placed within the MR system or "scanner.“强者, constant magnetic field aligns a tiny fraction of subatomic particles called protons that are present in most of the body's tissues. Radio-frequency energy is applied to cause these protons to produce signals that are picked by a receiver within the scanner. The signals are specially characterized using the rapidly changing, local magnetic field and computer-processed to produce images of the body part of interest.
MRI has become the preferred procedure for diagnosing a large number of potential problems in many different parts of the body. 在一般情况下, MRI creates pictures that can show differences between healthy and unhealthy tissue. Doctors use MRI to examine the brain, spine, joints (e.g., 膝盖, 肩膀, 手腕, 和脚踝), 腹部, 骨盆, 乳房, 血管, heart and other body parts.
To date, over 150 million patients have had MRI examinations. Every year, approximately 10 million patients undergo MRI procedures. MRI has been shown to be extremely safe as long as proper safety precautions are taken. 在一般情况下, the MRI procedure produces no pain and causes no known short-term or long-term tissue damage of any kind.
