Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI creates images from the resonance created in hydrogen atoms when they are polerized and an electromegntic pulse is used to knock them off axis. This section includes MR analysis software, MRI scanners, gadolinium contrast agents, and related magnetic resonance accessories.

  • Haojie Wang, M.D., director of advanced cardiovascular MRI and a member of the heart valve clinic at Baylor Scott White Heart Hospital, Dallas, explains the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in cardiology and the implementation of the cardiac MRI program at his hospital.

  • August 13, 2018 — The American College of Radiology Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) steering committee developed and approved a new version of CT/MRI LI-RADS (v2018).

  • Lawrence Tanenbaum, M.D., FACR, vice president and director of advanced imaging at RadNet, discusses the latest research on the effects of gadolinium contrast retention following magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams, and how facilities can best manage its use.

  • Robert Junk and Tobias Gilk, MRSO, MRSE, of architectural firm RAD-Planning, discuss the different types of safety hazards associated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and how to assess your own protocols to find and eliminate inefficiencies that could lead to safety hazards. 

  • Philips announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Ingenia Elition 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) solution and two clinical applications, Philips Compressed Sense and 3D APT. This integrated suite of innovations enables...

Artificial Intelligence Provides Faster, Clearer MRI Scans

A new artificial-intelligence-based approach to image reconstruction, called AUTOMAP, yields higher quality images from less data, reducing radiation doses for CT and PET and shortening scan times for MRI. Shown here are MR images reconstructed from the same data with conventional approaches, at left, and AUTOMAP, at right. Athinoula A.
