MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging at Tomografiya Medical Centre of Innovative Diagnosis is a safe and high-precision method of examination using the latest Siemens Magnetom Spectra MR system with a magnetic field strength of 3 Tesla. With the latest equipment, Tomografiya Medical Centre offers excellent opportunities for precision visualisation of the structure and functions of organs and tissues without using X-rays. We invite you to do an MRI in Minsk effectively and safely for examination of the brain, blood vessels, soft tissue, abdominal cavity and lesser pelvis, the spine, joints, as well as to have a check-up examination of any anatomical zone. The examination is not associated with effects of ionising radiation.

Having installed the latest Siemens Magnetom Spectra 3 Tesla, our Centre became one of the first clinics around the world to use this system. The MRI system with a magnetic field strength of 3 Tesla is the first ultra-high field expert-class MRI system available at a private medical centre in Belarus. 

  • Magnetic field strength of 3 Tesla for examination of different anatomical zones of the human body
  • Excellent image quality, high definition and precision images without irrelevant noise
  • Shorter duration of examination
  • High level of patient comfort: Tim4G+Dot technology significantly reduces the duration of scanning of the examined area
  • In a magnet tunnel of 173 cm in length and 60 cm in diameter, the patient feels as comfortable as possible, which minimises the probability of claustrophobia
  • Internal lighting and additional ventilation of the magnet improves patient during the procedure
  • A table-integrated spine coil allows performing examination of the spine without additional equipment. All you need is to simply lie down on the table and stay still for 10-20 minutes or as much as the doctor determines.


Detailed information about MR examination 

Under the effect of magnetic field, the MRI system transmits layer-by-layer images of the examined area to the computer, where using special software, its three-dimensional image is simulated with a minimum scan slice thickness of 0.5-1 mm. The radiologist sees the examined body area in view of the slice in detail.

Contraindications to MRI
  • Any electric or magnetic implant (e.g. implanted artificial heart drivers (cardiac pacemakers), insulin pump biostimulators, neurostimulators, cochlear implants, and hearing aids).
  • Presence of metal in the body, e.g.:
    • osteosynthesis devices – metal bone fixation devices for treatment of complex fractures,
    • non-fixed materials in the body containing metal particles – splinters, shot,
    • haemostatic clips on blood vessels, surgical clamps (except for those made of titanium).
  • Fear of being in a small space – claustrophobia, tic disorders, epilepsy.
  • Chest, abdomen or hip circumference of more than 140 cm.


Contraindications to contrast-enhanced MRI:

  • Pregnancy and lactation – the contrast agent penetrates through general circulation, foetal tissue, or breast milk.
  • Hypersensitivity (allergic reactions) to the contrast agent used.
