Diagnostics, an unit of Adesh Medical Centre
(P) Ltd. introduced WHOLE BODY MAGNETIC
RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI) facility for the
first time in Malwa region of Punjab and
proved to be a boon for people of Bathinda
and its surrounding region. The cost to
patient for getting a MRI scan done is reduce
due to close vicinity. Now patients would
not have to go to distant areas such as
Ludhiana (164 k.m.), Jalandhar (184 k.m.),
Chandigarh (218 k.m.), Amritsar (175 k.m.)
for MRI investigation and hence not bear
extra expenditure and delay in diagnosis,
which results in harmful consequences leading
to death of patients.
Unprecedented developments have taken place
that has catapulted MRI to the forefront
of modern medical imaging. MRI has widespread
applications in routine clinical practice
and provides significant and valuable information
that cannot be duplicated by other imaging
modalities. This is especially true in imaging
all lesions in head, spine and musculoskeletal
system. MRI also has the unique advantage
of assessing the entire vascular tree without
the need of administering exogenous contrast
agent. Presently MRI is used for imaging
from head to foot; and from bone marrow
imaging to bone and soft tissue.
We, at Adesh Diagnostics have installed
latest and modern (brand new) SIGNA Profile/
i Open Magnetic Resonance System with a
Slew Rate capability of 30mT/m/msec from
WIPRO GE Medical Systems to deliver all
advanced applications. The astounding variety
of newer and faster acquisition techniques
are providing unprecedented wealth of diagnostic
information for patients.
Dr. G. S. Shekhawat, M.D. (Radio-diagnosis)
and Gold Medallist from S. M. S. Medical
College, Jaipur is one of the Directors
of the company. This centre is running under
his direct day-to-day supervision and management.
Dr. (Mrs.) Deepshikha Shekhawat is also
M.D. (Radio-diagnosis), DNB (Radio diagnosis).
She has also done one year PDCC (Post Doctoral
Certificate Course) in Neuro-radiology &
three years senior residency at SGPGI, Lucknow.
She has been Assistant Professor at P.G.I.,
Chandigarh. Dr. (Mrs.) Shekhawat is also
working as full-time Consultant Radiologist
at Adesh Dignostics.
MRI has a vast critical role in early and
correct diagnosis, which is the most important
factor in management of critical patients.
MRI has a very important role in Headache,
Seizure, Stroke - EPI & Diffusion Images
for Early Inject Detection, Brain Tumours.
In Spine, Disc disease or any kind of tumour
safe in diseases during pregnancy because
MRI have no radiation. In child, no radiation
hazard during Myelination of Brain, best
Imaging Mortality in HIE, White Matter Disease.
In joints, Cruciale Ligament Injury, Meniscitear,
Joint Effusion, other joint diseases. In
abdomen, very useful for Abdominal Tumours,
Liver Masses, Renal Masses, Pelvic Masses,
MRCP for Biliary system.
MRI : An overview
MRI: A REVOLUTIONARY BREAKTHROUGH IN FIELD
MRI: A REVOLUTIONARY BREAKTHROUGH IN FIELD
MRI: A NEW, SAFE AND EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR
MRI: A SAFE AND SOUND INVESTIGATION
MRI: AN INDISPENSABLE DIAGNOSTIC TOOL
We cater various novel techniques.
Some of these are mentioned below:
Diffusion weighted Imaging (DWI)
DWI noninvasively and quickly provides information
about the in-vivo water diffusion in the
pathological tissue, hence providing early
diagnosis of the Infarct within one hour.
Magnetic Resonace angiography (MRA)
MRA has enjoyed clinical success in the
assessment of the cranial, carotid and peripheral
vessels. The main advantage of MRA is the
visualization of major blood vessels without
the use of contrast agent. Contrast enhanced
MRI tends to further increase the resolution,
thus allowing visualization of smaller vessels
with slow flow .It also overcomes the flow
Magnetic Resonace Cholangiopancreatography
MRCP is emerging as an exciting tool for
the non-invasive evaluation of pancreatic
and biliary ductal systems and is gradually
replacing PTC and ERCP for diagnostic purposes.
Duct dilatation, stricture and ductal filling
defects are clearly seen and the diagnostic
information obtained is equivalent to ERCP
in most patients.
Magnetic Resonance Urography (MRU)
MRU is recently being added to the diagnostic
work up of a case of urinary tract obstruction.
The coronal images using FISP or HASTE sequences
rapidly portray a dilated collecting system
and demonstrate the site of obstruction.
It avoids use of contrast agent and radiation
to the patient.
Magnetic Resonance Myelography (MRM)
It is a non-invasive modality that gives
myelography-like pictures without the need
for injection of contrast agent into the
subarachnoid space. It is done by two techniques
namely RARE (highly T2 weighted image) and
Magnetic Resonance Cisternography (MRC)
MRC is a non-invasive way of detection of
CSF leaks with no need of lumbar puncture
and injection of intra-thecal contrast or
use of ionizing radiation.
