Mri scan software

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan software


Avatar m tn These equipment use computers which uses the software that is supportive for the machinery.For .example if You take a CT scan to search for lung cancer the software system utilizes different angles to view the lung fields in many dimensions.3D lung reconstruction uses Improved Ray Casting Algorithm which provides information for diagnosing respiratory problems.
Avatar f tn How long is a mri with ms protocol usually? I had one and it was 20 minutes without contrast and 7 minutes with contrast on a 1.5 tesla is this pretty standard?
Avatar f tn Hi Tara and welcome to the forum. I don't believe we have "met" yet. My MS was diagnosed on a closed 1.5 Telsa MRI machine. However, the strength of the machine isn't the only factor. The software used to obtain the MRI cuts is just as important. I am lucky enough to have most of my MRIs taken on a 1.5t but it has the best software in the area ,including the academic centers.
Avatar n tn Especially when she moves or walks, she says her both bottoms(where she sits), sometimes hips are hurting so much. Does she need to have MRI or tomography and can she use MRI or tomography with her replacements? Her knee replacement brand is Zimmer and four components: Zimmer, NextGen, Complete Knee Solution, Legacy Knee-Posterior Stabilized LPS-Flex Femoral Component Option Size D, Right.
867582 tn?1311627397 I recently found out that a local hospital here has a 3 Tesla MRI machine. Yet, my experience with the last hospital-done MRI makes me wonder if I should hold out for a diagnostic imaging facility with a 3-Tesla instead of using the hospital 3-Tesla. Seeking opinions: What do you think?
Avatar f tn Sensitivity is good with MRI and MRA if the software package is designed to image structures. MRI generally has the highest sensitivity of the imaging modalities, with similar specificity to CT and TEE. .
751951 tn?1406632863 There is more than one kind of MRI software out there so they're not all the same. (I've had two different kinds--one of which was much easier to use than the other) It does seem to be a bit short-sighted for them to use software that will only work on Windows XP and it's a very good question how they're going to be able to compare images ten years down the line if the software is that finicky.
Avatar f tn I was wondering how you find out the level or strength of the mri machine? The printout from the radiologist just says it was a high-field MRI unit. I had thought at first the T1 and T2 meant something about that, but after reading the info post that Quix wrote, I found out that meant something different. I also checked on the CD's that were given to me after both my mri's and saw nothing on them either. I guess I should just call and ask.

Avatar f tn The facility I have had 2 MRIs done uses a Toshiba MRI and was today told they use "EMPOWER" software. Have read that 'good' software with a 1.5 T is as good as, or better than a 3T with poor software. Wondering if anyone knows about the quality of Toshiba and Empower? Thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn Even though my 3T MRI was on a machine with not-so-great software, the difference of the images between that and the images done on a 1.5T the year before are pretty impressive. Definitely mercedes vs VW... I'm glad that the 1.5 software is getting better.
Avatar f tn I am having another Mri on Wednesday next week. All my others were on 1.5T. All were with gad. Has anyone noticed a big difference between the two. I hate Mri's. Is it much noisier than the lesser strenghth magnets?
Avatar f tn m in limbo land and trying to justify spending more money getting an MRI done on a 3T. My MRI on a 1.5T was completely clear.
Avatar f tn Well after 4 long weeks of waiting for my MRI scan, i arrive at the MRI unit yesterday evening only to be told as im getting onto the scanner that my MRI has been requested without contrast. i did try to tell the radiographer that it should have been with contrast as it was to diagnose MS. The radiographer told me that contrast didnt matter and that MS would show on the type of scan they were doing (i know this not strictly true).
Avatar f tn More, actually, because the software provides for a great deal of detail, and software is just as important, if not more so, as the MRI magnet. At least that is my experience, but yours could be different. Brain MRIs are always ordered, it seems, but for spinal ones, that seems to be up to the neurologist. As has been said, the Health Pages will give you a great deal of info about this whole process.
Avatar f tn metastasis. Syncope and fainting. SOB I’ve seen a lot of different doctors due to changes in insurance, moving elsewhere, lack of funds, etc. my bloodwork isn’t always great either but they haven’t done any specific checks for cancer to my knowledge. I’m still rounding up doctor reports and lab results. My question is: Was it a mistake or error to put that on my report? Could it have been from another patient? How likely is that?
Avatar f tn First you need to know that the results of the MRI are only as good as the software that runs them. A 1.5T done at one facility may be inferior or superior to a 1.5T at another facility. Perhaps you could ask this question to your neuro..his preference and experience with both facilities. Generally the open MRIs are not as good as picking up the lesions but I 'm not sure since the 3T is thrown into the mix. As for the claustrophobia, join the club.
Avatar m tn I gone thorough the blood test and MRI scan at back.I got nerves pain is because of lack of sodium and potassium but got nothing at back.Would I know why iam getting back pain? and what should i do to overcome nerves problem?
Avatar m tn I had a MRI from the hospital and got a CD, which has a viewer and images. Dr. showed me the pancreatic tumors (about 15 cysts) on the computer screen. I tried it on my computer, but I could not see very clearly, I have two computer with the display resolution of 1440x900 and 1920x1080. Higher resolution showed better images, but still less quality than what I saw in the Dr's office. To see the better images, what do I need ? Better viewer software or better resolution display ?
147426 tn?1317265632 My neuro discussed this briefly with me last year. He stated that the 3.0T MRI at the nearby university (OHSU) had really mediocre software, so he was continuing to send his patients to the private imaging center that is associated with Providence Health Systems. this center uses the most elegant software. I am beginning to realize that a good 1.5T MRI with the latest/best software can be superior to a humdrum 3.0T machine.
Avatar f tn my previous 2 MRIs have been done at one location. Should I stay with this location, or does the availability of a 3 Tesla MRI warrant making a location and machine change?
Avatar n tn My MRI CD is also on that software, and it won't run on anything but XP, in my experience.
8587684 tn?1398829675 I noticed that on my MRI/MRA images on my software disc that there are 60-70 images all showing a area in the bottom of my brain in the middle (Superior Sagittal Sinus) that looks like a good sized white triangle pointing upwards and as the pictures get more detailed switching to the next images it gets larger. I read a horrifying story of a young woman that had chronic persistent migraines just like I have and we pretty much have the same symptoms.
