MRI Chest

Request an appointment

    Many vital organs are located in the chest: the heart, lungs, esophagus, etc. That is why diagnostic examination of the chest must be as accurate as possible, because after all, timely detection of possible diseases depends on it. One of the most informative and at the same time painless methods of examining the chest is, undoubtedly, chest MRI. Most often it is prescribed for examining surrounding tissues such as pleural cavities and the like. Our doctors do not prescribe lungs MRI often, mainly for differential diagnostics. In order to examine blood vessels and arteries, MRI with contrast is prescribed. The accuracy of chest diagnostics requires the latest equipment and the qualifications of specialists. Therefore, it is worth reading the reviews of the centers near you in order to choose the most reliable one.

    Diagnostic imaging chest is an absolutely harmless diagnostic method, as the patient is not affected by any kind of waves from the MRI. Such examination is very useful for detecting various types of cardiovascular, as well as oncological conditions at the earliest stages. MRI helps the radiologists to obtain a lot of information about the patient at once using just one method. 

    Following up after a Chest MRI

    After the Chest MRI is completed the images will be sent to the radiologist for a completion of the report. Once the report is complete it will be sent to the ordering physician. This process may take between one to two days. At that point the patient may refer back to the ordering physician for a copy of the results. A copy of the images may be requested during the MRI appointment, which will be provided in the form of a disc. Your wrist MRI in Orlando may be done at the diagnostic imaging center Touch of Health near you.
