Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most powerful tools used to diagnose or assess certain health conditions. An MRI machine uses magnets and radio waves to generate detailed images of the body’s internal structures. However, not all MRI machines are the same. Recent technological advances have made it possible to develop a new machine model: 3T MRI. There are several reasons why a 3T MRI is a great choice when it comes to diagnostic imaging.
Provides clearer and sharper images
In most cases, the tissue being assessed through an MRI is relatively small in scale. Therefore, it is vital that the image obtained from the procedure is of the highest possible quality. A high-quality image minimizes the probability of getting reading errors. 3T MRI machines generate a more powerful magnetic field than regular MRI machines. This allows them to produce clearer and more complete images.
A more efficient and comfortable experience
We understand that the MRI process can be intimidating for some patients who may experience anxiety or claustrophobia. Fortunately, since the 3T MRI machine is more powerful, the image capture process takes less time. It also provides the patient with a much more comfortable experience since the space for the body or body part to be examined is wider. When imaging areas other than the head, neck, or spine, the patient’s head may remain outside the machine.
