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.
