Traditional MRI, unlike PET or SPECT, cannot measure metabolic rates. However, researchers funded by NIBIB have discovered a way to inject specialized compounds (hyperpolarized carbon 13) into prostate cancer patients to measure the metabolic rate of a tumor. This information can provide a fast and accurate picture of the tumor’s aggressiveness.
The traditional closed MRI machine is only about two feet (60 cm) in diameter. It would not accommodate patients who are obese. The traditional MRI machine is not suitable for patients with claustrophobia. Since the space is enclosed, patients with claustrophobia may experience extreme anxiety.
A traditional MRI machine – that stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging – is a machine which can produce photos of inside your body using magnets and radio waves. The patient lies down on the flat surface and is slid inside the machine.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technique that is completely safe and pain free. This technology uses a combination of radio waves and magnets to produce detailed images of the body. A standard X ray is usually used to view the bones and joints. With an MRI, organs, muscles, and other soft tissues are easily viewed for a diagnosis.
Open MRI: Open MRI machines also stray from the traditional design of the full body MRI, which makes some patients feel anxious due to the "closed in" nature of the machine. An open MRI is open on the sides or features wider openings, still requiring the patient to lie on a sliding table.
A stand up MRI is a new model of the classic MRI machine. Rather than lying still on a flat surface, you get to stand up, sit down, or lean. To visualize the machine, simply imagine a traditional MRI machine but up on its side. These machines are also referred to as upright MRIs.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields, magnetic field gradients, and radio waves to generate images of the organs in the body. MRI does not involve X rays or the use of ionizing radiation, which distinguishes it from CT and PET scans.
The wide bore MRI scanner is a play on the traditional closed bore scanner. The magnet encompasses the body, like the narrower scanners. Likewise, there are many benefits associated with a wide bore scanner, including increased image quality and increased patient comfort.
