Magnetic resonance imaging (RMN Bucuresti) is a noninvasive way for doctors to examine organs, tissues and skeletal structures. It helps find abnormalities that are not detected by X-rays or computed tomography (CT) scans, and it can help determine if a tumor has spread, or whether an injury has healed correctly. It is important to remain still during an MRI exam, as movement can cause distortion and affect the quality of the images. You may hear tapping, clicking and thumping sounds during the procedure.
Patients should remove any metal objects, such as hearing aids, jewelry, watches or hairpins, from the body area being examined. It is also important to empty pockets of coins, phones and cards that contain iron (ferromagnetic) because they may be attracted by the MRI magnet. Patients should wear a robe or gown to reduce heat and discomfort while they are being scanned. If a patient is nervous or anxious about being in a closed space, a doctor can give them medication to help make the experience less stressful.
MRI Myths Debunked: Separating Fact from Fiction in Bucharest
Luisa Ciobanu is a magnetic resonance imaging expert who brings a diverse research background to Beckman Institute. Her interests range from neuroscience to pharmaceuticals to biomedical imaging, but she’s best known for her work in developing techniques that run experiments with ultra-high magnetic fields. She’ll collaborate with researchers in Beckman’s Biomedical Imaging Center to advance the institute’s endeavors in MRI. The Beckman Institute’s new Visiting Scholar program offers visiting scholars the opportunity to conduct research at the institute for a three-year period.
