MRI Department

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), is one of the most revolutionary developments in the field of diagnostic imaging. Though MRI was initially used primarily in neuro-imaging, it is now used in orthopaedic, haepatobiliary and cardio-vascular imaging. MRI is excellent in evaluation of joints and soft tissues. Angiography, with or without contrast injection, is possible by MRI for assessment of intracranial and extracranial vessels, thoracic and abdominal vessels, as well as, peripheral vascular channels.

The EKO MRI department was established in 1992 with a state-of-the-art 1.0 Tesla Magnetom Impact unit. In 2002, another unit was installed due to rapidly growing demand for this investigation. This 1.5 Tesla MR unit is equipped with very advanced MR techniques including Diffusion and Perfusion Imaging, Spectroscopy, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, Contrast Enhanced MR Angiography, Functional MRI and so on. In addition EKO uses Magnetic Resonance Cholangio- pancreatography for evaluation of the biliary tree and pancreatic duct, and is preferred by patients as it is non-invasive and painless. In Neuro Imaging, EKO MRI is by far the most accurate imaging modality to detect early infarctions. High-resolution images of the inner ear structures give excellent detail of normal anatomy, congenital anomalies and pathological processes of the inner ear. In most diagnostic dilemmas, EKO MRI can extend a helping hand for correct diagnosis.
