Why 3T MRI?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the 3 Tesla MRI is an encyclopedia.

 

SHIN IMAGING GE 3T MRIs in Los Angeles and Orange County are extremely efficient. Utilizing shorter scan times, the 3T machine maximizes patient comfort without compromising quality. The superb reliability of high-field MRI allows our board-certified radiologists to differentiate between benign and potentially hazardous medical conditions with confidence. This allows your health-care team to provide you with earlier diagnosis and treatment, subsequently leading to more positive outcomes.

Insurance companies pay the same amount for an MRI, regardless of whether your exam is performed on a low-field or high-field magnet. Don’t compromise your health with a lower strength magnet. Take advantage of the state-of-the-art technology and friendly atmosphere at our physician owned-and-operated facility. Choose 3T Imaging.

Specific Advantages of 3T in Neuro

  • We can see brainstem structures (white-matter tracts and deep cerebella nuclei) clearly.

  • Determine Brain tissue viability following a stroke or TIA.

  • A better picture of tumor environment from Venography.

  • Clearer visualization of smaller vessels in Circle of Willis.

  • Higher resolution DTI and FiberTrack capability with the Ultra-high.

  • Gradient System to prove TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

  • Higher resolution SWAN(Susceptibility Weighted Angiograpy) for excellent visualization of vasculature and blood products.

Specific Advantages of Body Imaging

  • Shorter breath hold time gives less motion artifacts for older patients.

  • Definite identification of benign tumors versus malignant disorder of prostate.

  • As simple as CT with DISCO (differential Sub-sampling with Cartesian Ordering): CT-like speed but high resolution MRI contrast.

  • LAVA-Flex: water, fat, in-phase, out-of-phase in a single acquisition as a free-breathing.

  • eDWI technique for high SNR diffusion images is applicable for oncology studies and treatment monitoring.

  • Whole Body Imaging using T1 fSPGR and T2 SSFSE with ARC acceleration without repositioning the patient or coils in 20 minutes.

Specific Advantages of Vascular Imaging

  • Excellent Non Contrast 3D Vascular Imaging make the higher visibility in vascular structures.

  • Inhance IFIR(Inflow Inversion Recovery) for Renal MRA & Inhance Carotids

  • Inhance Velocity for Arterial & Venous structures in the brain 3D TOF with Parallel Imaging for 3minute MRA of Brain

  • Extremely beneficial in Peripheral vascular such as calves and feet:  3D Deltaflow and ARC acceleration for 9minute Peripheral  Vascular runoff

Specific Advantages of Musculoskeletal Imaging

  • The Higher SNR spatial resolution define detection of tears of the articular cartilage of the labrum of the shoulder and hip and triangular fibro cartilage complex tears of the wrist.

  • Non- invasive imaging method for early detection of osteoarthritis with Cartigram

  • High- Homogeneity delivers excellent fat saturation away from iso-center and over a 50cm field-of-view great for whole body scan and extremities exams

  • IDEAL software produce 4different contrasts – fat/water/inphase/out of phase from one single acquisition
