ABOUT INNOVATION FOR MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a cornerstone of medical imaging and is essential in the diagnosis and monitoring of a variety of diseases. It is a recent field that has developed extremely rapidly, thanks to advances in technology and medicine.1

MRI is the technique of choice for evaluating many diseases because of its soft tissue contrast, high spatial and temporal resolution, and lack of ionizing radiation.2
A number of techniques are being explored to further enhance the diagnostic accuracy of MRI.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF MRI

Providing excellent soft tissue contrast and a huge variety of accessible tissue parameters, MRI has revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions.1,2

MRI allows for the noninvasive visualization of structural and functional information of the human body.2 New magnetic resonance techniques, pulse sequence acquisition methods, and innovative hardware are continually being developed to improve image quality and shorten scanning times.2
