In what cases is an MRI needed?

Magnetic — resonance imaging is one of the most modern and accurate methods for studying the organism that allows to detect the disease in its earliest stages.

It is a particularly effective method for:

  • Detection and visualization of  vasoconstriction;
  • Diagnostic imaging of bone and joint injuries;
  • Diagnostics and imaging of brain tumors;
  • Visualization and diagnosis of tumors and other diseases of the lung, liver, pancreas, kidney, spleen;
  • Diagnosis of various disorders of the nervous system;
  • Diagnostic imaging and cardiac defects;
  • Diagnosis of diseases of the genitourinary system;
  • Visualization and diagnostics of breast cancer.

What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal bone disease in which bones lose their mineral density, leading to an increase of their fragility and increased risk of fracture.

Osteoporosis is called the silent epidemic. This is due to the fact that the disease, over a period of time, occurs without any clinical symptoms, there are no pain in the bones until a fracture occurs.

That is why patients should pay attention to the development of disease symptoms such as loss of height by a few centimeters, a change in posture, the formation of the thoracic «hump» and others.  After 50 years, 50% of women and 35% of man are at risk.

Osteoporotic fractures significantly affect the overall health and mortality of those affected. Hip fractures result in lower life expectancy by 12-15%.

In Medical Home Odrex, you will find the most modern equipment for the diagnosis of osteoporosis in the initial stages. Densitometer Hologic Discovery determines bone health and mineral density.

Is CT dangerous?

Computed tomography refers to the number of safe and accurate methods of qualitative research of the body.  Risk of adverse effects from exposure to X—rays is not much higher than in conventional radiography.

In some cases, there is a need for intravenous administration of contrast media, which usually causes a feeling of warmth that spreads throughout the body. In rare cases, allergic reactions may occur in the form of redness.  If such reactions occur, immediately notify a physician who will administer the necessary medication.

The presence of any other allergic reactions should be told to the physician conducting the study. Patients should also warn physicians about the presence of heart disease, asthma, diabetes, kidney disease and thyroid issues.

Pregnant and possibly pregnant women are also supposed to be inform the staff  of CT cabinet.

Do I need special preparation before an MRI examination?

Before undergoing MRI examinations it is necessary to remove all metal objects and jewelry (watches, jewelry, hairpins, etc.). Clothing with metal inserts also has to be removed. Metal objects affect the action of the magnetic field that is used during diagnosis, which in turn affects the quality of the pictures.

On the eve of the survey, we recommended a moderate meal.

MRI is contraindicated if you have a pacemaker implanted. A strong magnetic field may interfere with its work. Also inform your doctor about the presence of metal implants, if any.
