Technology used for MRI Spine Lumbar

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a common procedure used for diagnoses of issue with spine and other organs. Magnetic waves are used to produce detailed image of spine regions in this procedure. A patient has to go move inside an MRI machine, which looks like a large doughnut, on a moving table. MRI scan is not invasive and a painless procedure. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, MRI scan does not use radiation and hence is a safer procedure.

Types of MRI Spine Lumbar

  1. MRI Spine Lumbar with or without contrast: A contrast agent is injected in the body or given orally for MRI Spine Lumbar with contrast. This generally gives better images than MRI without contrast. However, your doctor will be in a best position to decide which one to go for.
  1. MRI Spine Lumbar closed vs. open MRI Scan: Most MRI Scan Spine Lumbar machines require the patient to lie down and go into a machine. For people who fear closed spaces, this may cause anxiety. The technician can give sedatives in those cases. Another alternative is to opt for an open MRI which is more expensive but will not cause anxiety. 
  1. 5 Tesla vs. 3 Tesla MRI Spine Lumbar: Tesla is a unit of measurement of magnetic strength. MRI machines can either be 1.5 tesla or 3 tesla. A 3 Tesla MRI Scan machine can produce better quality images at a faster pace. However, they are more expensive. Additionally, for most of the MRI scans that are done in India, the 1.5 Tesla machines are adequate.
  1. Screening vs. normal MRI Scan: Depending on the details required for Spine Lumbar region, the doctor may recommend a screening or a normal MRI. The default is normal. Screening MRI scan is less expensive and details are slightly less.
