Advantages of MRI examination for pacemaker patients

Precise diagnostics – without radiation exposure

  • Exposure to radiation = “zero”
  • Soft tissue shows high degree of contrast
  • Optimal images showing structures in muscles, ligaments and capsules
  • Spine diagnostics (slipped disc, inflammation), myelography (image of the spinal cord, cerebrospinal fluid) without a spinal tap
  • High contrast, structure of abdominal organs can be distinguished easily
  • Invasive diagnostic procedures can be avoided (e.g. myelography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), excretory urography /intravenous pyelography (IVP)

Further advantages of neuroradiology

for the head, spine, spinal cord and (blood) vessels

The location of recent strokes can be pinpointed within 10 minutes

Immediate and early diagnosis of

  • Vascular occlusions, vascular anomalies
  • Small tumours, (e.g. microadenomas in the pituitary gland)
  • Degenerative disorders of the brain (Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases)
  • Inflammations, causes of seizures
  • Demyelination (MS) multiple sclerosis
  • Posttraumatic sequelae
  • Microhemorrhages

Diffusion-weighted Imaging

  • Diagnosis of infarcts
  • Characterisation of pathological processes using molecular imaging

Perfusion-weighted Imaging

  • Reduced blood supply (stenosis) e.g. carotid artery
  • Images of subarachnoid space in the brain
