The MRI unit at RGCI&RC is a modern state-of-the-art machine, capable of performing whole body MR scanning. The machine is an 18 channel, high gradient 1.5T scanner with capability of performing all kinds of complex evaluations required in patients with malignancy in addition to performing the routine applications.
The MR unit is capable of performing dynamic studies and multiphase angiographic studies. A high end peripheral vascular coil is used for performing high resolution peripheral angiographies of the lower limbs. Venography, MR spectroscopy, perfusion, diffusion imaging and mean curve analysis functions are available for evaluation of complex cases.
Breast imaging is routinely performed with a high resolution breast coil with advanced software available for analysis of post contrast kinetics of mass lesions. Availability of MR guided breast biopsy is our strength.
The machine is equipped with a unique ‘Total imaging matrix’ (TIM) technology making it possible to combine the elements for more than one coil for optimal imaging. Spine composing software and mobitrack automatic patient table movements further help in optimal imaging and evaluation of images.
