DIA's News Update

Our Philips 3-T Ingenia MR scanner

Philips Ingenia 3-T MR Scanner is a BETTER MRI: it offers a 70 cm wide-bore system allowing a much more “OPEN” feel for our patients than a conventional MR system. Our 3.0T scanner provides high-quality images with exceptional patient comfort.

No MR scanner is universal, depending on what your doctor is looking for, our Board Certified radiologists can recommend one of DIA’s 4 different MR scanners. Our 3-T Ingenia is better for Joints and Spine imaging because it provides better resolution for small parts ( i.e. joint cartilage).

Fonar Upright MRI aids neck pain diagnosisBy AuntMinnie.com staff writers

MRI vendor Fonar of Melville, NY, is touting study results that show that 150% more whiplash patients had demonstrable radiographic pathology when scanned upright by MRI than when they were scanned lying down.

The study, published in the medical journal Brain Injury, also concluded that "patients with a history of motor vehicle crash-associated neck pain have a substantially higher frequency of cerebellar tonsillar ectopia (CTE) of 1 mm or more than nontraumatic subjects" when examined by the Fonar Upright MRI (July 2010, Vol. 24:7-8, pp. 988-994).

The lead author of the study is Michael Freeman, MD, from the department of public health and preventive medicine at Oregon Health and Science University School of Medicine in Portland and the Institute of Forensic Medicine at the University of Aarhus in Aarhus, Denmark.

The authors noted that among 1,200 neck patients, the frequency of CTE was detected four times more often in neck pain patients who had experienced whiplash trauma compared to neck pain patients with no recent trauma when the Fonar Upright MRI was used.

In addition, CTE was found 2.5 times more often in the group receiving an upright scan compared to patients imaged in the prone position if the patients were scanned with the Fonar system.
