The MRI Department at Poona Hospital & Research Center provide services around-the-clock and is well-equipped with the latest 3T MRI machine. With the highest quality of imaging and image interpretation, the department provides quick and precise diagnostic reports.
MRI 3 Tesla Scan
Tesla (T) is the unit of measurement quantifying the strength of a magnetic field. Before the 3 Tesla Machine, the high-field standard was 1.5 Tesla.
The 3 Tesla scanner generates a magnetic field that is twice the strength of 1.5 Tesla machines and 10 to 15 times the strength of low field or open MRI scanners.
The magnetic field produced by the 3T Magnetom Trio MRI System yields exceptional anatomic detail.
The increased image clarity revealed by 3T is particularly beneficial for pathological conditions involving the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal system.
The benefits of the 3T scanner are not confined to Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
The increased spatial resolution of the 3T scanner allows for high-quality vascular imaging. Thus, 3 Tesla MR Angiogram studies may often supplant the need for invasive interventional catheter studies.
