Advanced MRI Images

As good as a standard MRI image is, the image can be improved even further by adding contrast. Contrast is dye that is injected intravenously right before the MRI scan.

MRI Contrast

 

What is the difference between a standard MRI and an advanced MRI?

A standard MRI uses a strong magnetic field to produce detailed images of the structures inside the body without surgery or ionizing radiation (x-rays). MRI technology can “see” inside the bones as well as provide a clear picture of soft tissues and organs.

As good as a standard MRI image is, the image can be improved even further by adding contrast. In an advanced MRI, a dye called contrast is injected intravenously into your vein. Tumors and other abnormalities will absorb the contrast dye as it progresses through your blood vessels, and this area will be highlighted on the MRI scan. This allows for the detection of even the smallest abnormalities, as well as which organs or tissues are involved. In addition, contrast allows a doctor to observe functional abnormalities that are not visible on a regular scan, particularly problems with how well your blood is flowing through your vessels.
