Real-time MRI. Are you ready for MRE?

MRI is Magnetic Resonance Imaging that is one of the primary tools that physicians use to diagnose diseases and detect injuries from broken bones to conditions like multiple sclerosis. But the drawback is that MRI is a slow process and it takes hours, sometimes even days, to accurately interpret and examine. Due to this, if […]

FMRI Scans Help Reveal ‘Fingerprints’ Of Mental Diseases

FMRI stands for functional magnetic resonance imaging. As the name reveals, it helps in taking images by detecting the deviations of blood flow. Since the activities of the neuronal activation and the cerebral blood flow are interconnected, FMRI effectively takes images of the brain to explain its functionalities more clearly. This is a much effective […]

MRI Market Project to Reach $7.5 by 2025

The global market of Magnetic Imaging Resonance (MRI) is predicted to reach USD 7995.1 million in 2025 from a figure of USD 5913.6 in the year 2017. In fact, the magnetic imaging resonance market is also likely to grow with an average CAGR of 3.8% from 2018 to 2025. The health ministry of various countries […]

MRI Study Finds Men, “Blushing Individuals” More Sensitive to Alcohol

According to the reports of research conducted at China’s Shantou University, the findings of which were published in the American Journal of Neuroradiology, March edition, men are more sensitive to alcohol consumption with viewable signs like blushing. Scanning report from different types of MRI techniques shows that regular alcohol intake correlated with certain regional changes […]

Imaging Technique Provides Insight into Speech Development

Our speech development is affected by numerous factors, including the pathway of the brain. What we hear and derive affects individual language development significantly. A research team from New York University used different imaging techniques to determine the effect of the brain’s pathways and its contribution to speech development. Published on March 4, the research […]

Can CDS Reduce Waste?

There is a growing concern about the overuse of healthcare resources, which includes imaging. Researchers are on a mission to determine if a clinical decision support (CDS) tool can help less experienced clinicians reduce inappropriate use of imaging. A study conducted by a single institution analyzed over 5000 CT and MRI imaging orders collected before […]

Is CDS the answer for Ordering Appropriately?

It is a common practice to overuse healthcare resources, which includes imaging. House staff physicians have been overusing resources leading to concerns arising repeatedly. Researchers have recently developed a clinical decision support (CDS) tool that helps clinicians with less experience to reduce inappropriate imaging orders. The study team analyzed over 5000 CT and MRI orders […]

MRI Used to Check for Psychosis

A recent study published in the ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Science’, has interdenominational-sensitive MRI (NM-MRI) as a potential biomarker of psychosis. The test is a marker of dopamine function in patients of schizophrenia. It indicates the severity of various psychotic symptoms. The test was initially used to detect neuron loss in neurodegenerative patients. But, […]

Imaging Proximity and Convenience Matter

Follow-up imaging is an important requirement for patients to ensure complete healing. However, when it comes to the location of imaging facilities, new research found that patients usually come back to the same place for follow-up imaging where they had gone for initial imaging. In the research, authors included over 1000 cases of abdominal ultrasound, […]
