Magnetic resonance imaging

To produce images without the intervention of ionizing radiation, the MRI is obtained by subjecting the patient to an electromagnetic field with a magnet of 1.5 Tesla, equivalent to 15000 times the magnetic field of our planet. This powerful magnet attracts protons that are contained in the hydrogen atoms that make up the human tissues, which, to be stimulated by the radio frequency waves, out of its normal alignment. When the stimulus is suspended, the protons return to its original position, releasing energy that is transformed into radio signals to be captured by a computer which transforms them into images that describe the form and functioning of the organs.

Frequently asked questions

Brief list of the most frequently asked questions by our patients.

Cardiac magnetic resonance

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is a noninvasive, safe for the patient, which provides various information and of great clinical importance on the heart and large vessels. Given its many resources, CMR is a technique that allows a comprehensive study of the cardiovascular system. Continue reading..
