WHY do 3 TESLA MRI SCANS MATTER

FOR PERSONAL INJURY

CASES?

Medical imaging is a powerful tool in the presentation of personal injury cases. The images can be used prior to trial to prove to opposing lawyers, insurers, and defendants that the injured person’s claim is just and that he or she should win. Highest quality imaging helps attorneys better prepare for litigation and enables them to demonstrate what the clients have suffered in a tangible way.

If a picture is worth a thousand words,

the 3T MRI scan is an encyclopedia.

Q. Will getting a 3T MRI scan cost me more money than a traditional MRI scan?

A. 3T MRI scans cost no more than that of traditional MRIs.

  • If a person has been injured in an accident, having a lawyer who understands the medical issues that are involved with that injury can make a big difference in convincing the liability insurance company to pay what they rightfully owe.

  • If a person’s personal injury case is part of a legal dispute, the best scanner for diagnostic imaging - 3T MRI scan images should be used by an attorney to demonstrate the evidence of any injury was sustained.

  • The most accurate diagnosis from 3T High Field MRI results in the most precise med-legal report and the best treatment solution for the client.

  • Only a few 3T MRI centers have been accepting Personal Injury liens in Southern California.

Never Miss Any Injury

For most Personal Injury cases, the most common type of MRI scanners in use in the United States today are the 1.5 Tesla scanner and the 0.3 to 0.5T open MRI scanners. However, in recent years, 3 Tesla scanners have become available in many major metropolitan hospitals, and top 10% imaging centers nationwide.

The greater the Tesla value,

the higher the magnetic field strength of the machine.

  • 4 x higher spatial resolution than 0.5 Tesla MRI (Stand Up MRI)

  • 2 x higher spatial resolution than 1.5 Tesla MRI - the accurate herniated disc volume  measurement, clear identification of Whiplash injury, and clear views of sciatic nerve

  • 2 x faster scan time than 1.5 Tesla and 4 times faster than 0.5 Tesla MRI

How are 3 Tesla Ultra Height Field MRI scans beneficial
for various types of Injury?
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

3 Tesla MRI is also best known for its ability to detect smaller pathology. Even mild Traumatic Brain Injury is seen far better on 3T MRI than 1.5T MRI or open MRI. DTI(Diffusion Tensor Imaging) runs best on ultra high 3 Tesla MRI.

  • Soft Tissue Injury/Whiplash

The increased image clarity revealed by 3T is particularly beneficial to define the exact volumetric size of disc, annular tear on the disc fishier tear of ligament, and muscle and ligament redundancy.

  • Chest Injury

The capacity of short breath hold and respiratory triggering software of SHIN Imaging 3T MRI can detect the hair line rib fractures and edema in the lungs noninvasively.

  • Musculoskeletal Injury

Like high definition TV images, the highest spatial resolution of 3T MRI can detect the linear tear on the ligaments and muscles.

  • Herniated Disc

SHIN Imaging 3T MRI has the capability to scan herniated disc size, which can be measured by volume (SI, AP, and RL dimension).

Reading by Subspecialty Radiologists

In personal injury cases, diagnostic imaging report is of utmost importance. The report acts as legal evidence to justify treatment for any type of injury. These medical reports are often used to highlight the severity of the personal injury case to an insurance company or jury, which determines the compensation offered by the insurance company. The most precise med-legal report completed by SHIN Imaging’s subspecialty radiologists helps attorneys, jury, and insurance company to better understand how severe one’s injuries are or the extent of the injury.
