CT Scan and MRI

 

Access to MRI room and the exam is regulated by absolute and relative contraindications. The most important are:

  • Cardiac pacemaker
  • Intracranial metal clips
  • Presumed or confirmed pregnancy in the first trimester

 

More information can be found in the waiting room and in the information form filled with the assistance of the staff and validated by the radiologist.

 

INFORMATION

For CT exams with contrast medium, blood chemistry tests are necessary. The instructions can be found on the form given to the patient at the time of reservation. The form must be validated by the attending doctor. For phone reservation, the form can be sent by fax. Contrast mediums used in MRI exams are those with the least risk of allergy and it is used in small quantities (about 10 mL). In this case blood chemistry tests as in CT scans aren’t required.

Relevant information on CT and MRI

CAT (Computerized Axial Tomography) uses interaction between x-ray and the examined body district to produce images. MR (magnetic resonance) uses the interaction between magnetic fields and the examined body district. It is a multi-parametric approach, which can examine tissue and organs from many points of view (sequences). MRI is very effective in distinguishing nearby tissues (contrast resolution), limiting the use of contrast medium to some anatomical districts.

 

CT has the advantage to provide images as “pieces of the jigsaw” (pixel) of small dimension and greater number (spatial resolution).

 

The choice between CT and MRI depends on many parameters, clinical question in the first place. For an effective examination and correct diagnosis, it is essential for the medic to formulate a suspicion of pathology or point out the organ or apparatus to be analysed. This is because CT and even more MRI, aren’t performed in a standardized way, but with specific protocols depending on the clinical question and they are modulated in relation to the feedback, during acquisition. For this reason, in case of doubt, it is necessary for the attending doctor or the specialist to interact with the radiology specialist, in order to perform an exhaustive exam, to reach in the shortest time and least cost the correct diagnosis.

 

The choice between CT and MRI depends on many parameters, clinical question in the first place.

 

This is necessary for a correct diagnosis.
In our structure, we perform CT and MRI for every clinical question and all body districts. In case of a non-exhaustive exam and in the need of further diagnostics, this is organized in a short time directly by our team, after consultation with the attending doctor.

 

Our CT and MRI instruments are constantly updated.

 

In our structure we have been performing abdominal MRI studies for more than twenty years and we can be considered pioneers in this field. DWI sequence (diffusion weighted imaging), essential to detect neoplastic tissue, has been used since 2008.

 

Pederzoli Hospital is very active in scientific studies in the field of pancreatic pathology: multidisciplinary work with surgeons, gastroenterologists, pathologists and radiologists has led to many publications visible on PUBMED and recently to the drafting of a textbook with the comparation between imaging and images of microscopic and macroscopic anatomy.

 

In complex clinical cases, the report is integrated with print on paper of “key images” to be shared with the attending doctor. This is part of a precise check list about the studied pathology.
