Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging

What is 3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance?

3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance is the state-of-the-art method in diagnostic imaging, which allows the most complete and advanced studies in magnetic resonance imaging. It differs from conventional equipment due to its Tesla technology, the equipment’s power unit. The model 3 has twice the intensity of the magnetic field, in order to create high-definition images and identify very small lesions.
This is a crucial advantage in some specialties, such as Neurology, as it can detect very small brain alterations, assess ischemia or strokes and improve the visualization of vascular structures.


How it works

In the 3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance, the patient is exposed to magnetic waves. Coils in the device capture signals as they are released, process and transform them into three-dimensional, high-precision images. The equipment can capture signals from several angles, without requiring the patient to move.
As it is a larger device, it helps reduce discomfort for patients suffering from claustrophobia. In addition, this technology makes exams quicker and more comfortable for the patient, especially for bedridden patients and others with special needs.


Capabilities and benefits

The 3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance shortens exams and has a high power of gradients, resulting in images of high quality and detail. This technology provides the necessary information to prescribe a safe treatment or intervention.

Among the main benefits of the 3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance, the following stand out:

• Increased response capacity.

• Increased quality.

• Increased level of detail, due to finer cuts, which expand and qualify the image resolution.

• Significant noise reduction.

• Superior dimensional tunnel, eliminating constraints associated with patients’ body weight or other restrictive conditions.
