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.

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared GOKnee3D, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) application from Siemens Healthineers that significantly reduces the time required to perform comprehensive diagnostic exams of the knee.

  • Arterys Inc. announced its fifth 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Arterys Oncology AI Suite, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based, cloud-based medical imaging software.

  • ITN Associate Editor Jeff Zagoudis demonstrates several mobile apps designed to help pediatric patients learn what an MRI exam is like to help calm their fears and make it easier to conduct the exam.

  • Investigations are underway at a hospital in Mumbai, India, after a man was killed when he was sucked into a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine while carrying a metallic oxygen cylinder into the exam room. Two hospital staff members have been arrested for causing death due to negligence,...
