Magnetic Resonance Imagining (MRI) generation makes use of a magnetic area and radio waves to create unique photos of the inner systems of the body. An MRI examination is accurate, secure and painless.
An MRI examination detects and may assist diagnose a extensive array of situations including (however now no longer constrained to):
An MRI examination may offer in addition perception into an abnormality decided formerly with the aid of using an x-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan.
At CDC our MRI assessments are done the usage of modern MRI generation and interpreted with the aid of using skilled radiologists licensed with the aid of using the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
CT is an more advantageous shape of x-ray generation that makes use of a laptop to supply 3-D tomographic snap shots from a chain of 2D radiographic snap shots. This produces distinct snap shots of positive frame elements including (however now no longer restrained to): gentle tissue, blood vessels, lungs, brain, abdomen, pelvis and bones.
CT is frequently the desired technique of diagnosing many cancers together with liver, lung, and pancreatic cancers due to the fact it is able to decide a tumour`s location, length and affected tissue area.
Typical Areas scanned include:
Types of Exams:
- Diagnostic CT
- Preventative Health Scans:
- Heart Scan
- Lung Scan
- Virtual Colonoscopy
Ultrasound is a clinical imaging approach that makes use of inaudible, excessive frequency sound waves to shape pics of the frame`s inner organs and tissues. The sound waves are transmitted into your frame the usage of a small hand-held transducer or probe, contemplated off organs and different systems lower back to the probe, and transformed into an photo for show with the aid of using a computer. Ultrasound pics are displayed in actual time, this means that that the motion of organs, toddlers or even blood glide may be visualized and assessed.
Although ultrasound is maximum typically related to toddlers and pregnancies, it may be used to evaluate many systems withinside the frame, a number of which include (however aren’t restrained to):
- Abdominal organs (liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, stomach)
- Pelvic organs (kidneys, bladder, uterus, ovaries)
- Thyroid and parathyroid glands
- Scrotum (testicles)
- Arteries and veins
- Obstetrics (All levels of a growing being pregnant such as Nuchal translucency genetic screening exam)
- Appendix, hernias and different lumps and bumps
Most of the ultrasound assessments above also are to be had for children, such as the subsequent pediatric most effective assessments:
- Hip dislocation/dysplasia
- Cranium (head and brain)
- Pyloric stenosis (stomach)
