About Cardiology MRI Ultrasound
BIOMED SCAN imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive medical test that uses radio waves to create detailed pictures of the heart and blood vessels. It is often more useful than traditional tests such as x-rays and computed tomography (CT).
During the test, you will lie down on a table that moves into the large scanner. You may be asked to hold your breath for short periods of time while the radiologist takes images. The test can be noisy and you will be provided with earplugs or headphones to block out the noise and allow you to listen to music. The radiologist will be in another room and can hear and talk to you throughout the procedure. You will be given a call button to use if you have any questions or concerns.
The Role of Cardiology Ultrasound in Early Detection of Heart Disease
The cardiologist can then review the images and provide you with a diagnosis. MRI exams are very safe. There is no radiation and you can return to your normal diet and medications unless your doctor advises otherwise.
MRI is a more accurate way to diagnose vascular abnormalities such as aneurysms of the aorta and heart valve disease, and can help evaluate a variety of other cardiovascular disorders. It is especially helpful in evaluating the anatomy and function of congenital hearts, assessing blood flow through the heart and aorta, and identifying pericardial effusions (fluid around the heart). Unlike cardiac CT, MRI does not require dye injections or catheterization.
