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.

  • Enhao Gong, Ph.D., founder of Subtle Medical, an artificial intelligence (AI) company that develops products to help medical imaging, explains how AI might be used to reduce the amount of gadolinium contrast needed for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams.

  • During the 104th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 25-30 in Chicago, Siemens Healthineers introduced the Magnetom Altea 1.5 Tesla (1.5T) magnetic resonance (MR) scanner, equipped with BioMatrix patient personalization technology.

  • Researchers are using artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce the dose of a contrast agent that may be left behind in the body after magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams, according to a new study. The study was presented at the 2018 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (...

  • Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on its new premium magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, Vantage Orian 1.5T. The Vantage Orian represents a new standard in the premium wide bore 1.5T market, according to Canon, with new...

MRI and Computer Modeling Reveals How Wrist Bones Move

Using fast MRI, UC Davis researchers scanned left and right wrists of men and women and used the data to build computer models of the movement of wrist bones. The data could help understand wrist injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Image courtesy of Brent Foster and Abhijit Chaudhari, UC Davis.
