MRI Machine

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to make images of anatomy and physiological processes of the body. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields, magnetic field gradients, and radio waves to generate images of organs in the body. MRI does not include the use of X-rays or ionizing radiation, which distinguishes it from CT and PET scans. MRI is a medical application of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). NMR can also be used for imaging in other NMR applications such as NMR spectroscopy.It is often used to monitor the diagnosis, diagnosis and treatment of the disease. It is based on sophisticated technology that stimulates and detects changes in the direction of the rotational axis of protons found in water that make up living tissues.

Working of MRI Machine

MRIs use powerful magnets that produce a strong magnetic field that forces protons in the body to align with that field. When a radiofrequency current is pulsed through the patient, the protons are stimulated, and move out of balance, straining against the pulling of the magnetic field. When the radiofrequency field is switched off, MRI sensors are able to detect the energy released as protons with a magnetic field. It takes time for the proton to realize the magnetic field, as well as the amount of energy released, changes depending on the environment and the chemical nature of the molecules. Physicians are able to distinguish between different types of tissues based on these magnetic properties.
How do X-rays Work?

To obtain an MRI image, a patient is placed inside a large magnet and must remain very stable during the imaging process not to blur the image. Contrast agents (often containing the element gadolinium) may be given to a patient before or during MRI to increase the speed at which the proton is realistically coupled to the magnetic field. The faster the realization of the proton, the brighter the image.


The development of MRI scans is a major achievement for the medical world.

Doctors, scientists and researchers are now able to examine the inner part of the human body in high detail using non-invasive tools.

The following are examples in which MRI scanners will be used:
  •      Brain and spinal anomalies
  •      Tumors, ulcers, and other anomalies in various parts of the body
  •      Breast cancer screening for women who face a high risk of breast cancer
  •      Injuries or joint abnormalities, such as back and knee
  •      Some types of heart problems
  •      Diseases of the liver and other parts of the stomach
  •      Evaluation of pelvic pain in women with causes including fibroids and endometriosis.
  •      Suspected uterine anomalies in women undergoing infertility evaluation
This list is by no means exhaustive. The use of MRI technology is always expanding in scope and usage. 

Types of MRI Machines

  1. Extremity MRI
  2. Open MRI
  3. Tesla MRI  
  4. Wide Bore
  5. Traditional   
  6. Open Upright 
1. Extremity MRI Machines

It is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a closed MRI machine to view tissues in arms and legs. Unlike a traditional MRI procedure that uses a large tube-shaped device, an extremity MRI uses a small scanner specifically designed for the extremities of the body. This eliminates the possibility of claustrophobia, which some patients experience when they engage in a full body MRI machine. A traditional MRI requires you to lie down completely, but an extreme MRI will not restrict your body movements too much. A person may undergo an MRI to diagnose any of the following conditions in the arm, leg, arm, and leg:
2.Open MRI Machines
Open MRI machines also deviate from the traditional design of full-body MRI, which makes some patients feel anxious due to the machine's "closed-in" nature. An open MRI on the sides is open or features a wide opening, yet requires the patient to lie down on a sliding table. Although an open MRI provides increased comfort for patients suffering from anxiety or klestrophobia, it comes at the cost of making less detailed images than their closed MRI counterparts because the open nature of the machine does not provide as strong a magnetic field Does.
3.Tesla MRI Machines
This type of closed MRI uses magnetic fields that have twice the strength of a conventional MRI machine, thus creating an even more detailed image in a shorter period of time. It is commonly used to identify signs of stroke, tumor, or aneurysm in the brain; Examine the heart and circulatory system for damage resulting from a heart attack or heart disease, or blockage of blood vessels; To look for conditions such as arthritis, disc disease, or bone infections in bones and joints; Or to analyze the condition of internal organs such as liver, kidney, uterus, ovary, or prostate.
