Cardiology MRI Ultrasound
BIOMED SCAN Ecografie imaging (MRI) is an important diagnostic tool for diagnosing heart and blood vessel diseases. Unlike x-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans, MRI does not use radiation. Instead, radio waves re-align hydrogen atoms that naturally exist within the body and then the scanner creates pictures using this information.
MRI images provide very detailed information about the structures and function of the heart, blood vessels, and other organs. This information helps doctors make diagnoses and plan treatments for patients with a wide range of heart conditions.
Cardiology MRI and Ultrasound: Pioneering Technologies Transforming Heart Care
In some cases, MRI is used to evaluate patients for surgery or to follow up on the progress of heart disease after treatment. In other cases, it can replace more invasive procedures such as dye injections or catheterization.
For most cardiac MRI exams, your child will need to remain very still. Your child will also need to wear a hospital gown for safety and comfort. If your child has claustrophobia or anxiety about the MRI, we may give them anti-anxiety medication before the exam.
An MRI scan of the heart usually takes between 45mins-1hr.
A radiologist, a doctor who has completed specialized training in the interpretation of MRI, will analyze the results. The radiologist will send a written report to your child’s primary care or referring physician.
If your child’s doctor is interested in learning more about the heart, they might recommend a stress echo test. In a stress echo test, your child will receive an IV with medication that causes their heart to beat faster than normal. This simulates exercise and allows the doctor to see how well the heart functions during activity, which may help determine if there is a problem with blood flow or oxygenation in the heart.
