system employing the latest hardware, software and imaging protocols. Adapted for use in horses, a dedicated, custom facility has been built to utilize the unique features of this magnet. This magnet is 30,000 times of Earth’s magnetic field. It visualizes injuries that were impossible to diagnose accurately earlier. The exceptional properties of the magnet allow the aptitude to image the limbs, head, and neck of full size horses and whole body of animals less than 500 pounds.
Coronary Angiography is supposed to be the finest way to detect the coronary artery disease and other heart disease. The researchers said that the imaging technology works as correctly as the conventional methods do. MRI provides internal images of the body by using magnets and radio waves. It was not able to give clear images of moving objects until recently, such as the image of beating heart. During past two years, some of the new software has improved MRI with the help of stronger magnets and more computers that are powerful. Doctors may have the sharp images of the heart beating. Renato Santos of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center said that MRI was a research tool until recently but by using new technologies, it transformed in a real clinical tool. At the same time, the combination of two cardiac MRI tests has also improved its ability to create more advance and sharp images.
Engineers at the Johns Hopkins Urology Robotics Lab are reporting the invention of a new MRI robot dubbed PneuStep that is intended to work within strong magnetic fields of the MRI machine and perform the MRI-guided organ biopsies. The new motor, which is without metal or electricity, can power robotic medical devices that are controlled remotely to be used for cancer biopsies and therapies The results are quicker and even more accurate as compared to that of human hand. The robot goes together with the patient in the MRI scanner and is controlled remotely by monitoring the images on the MR. It is claimed to increase precision in locating and gathering tissue samples, reduce diagnostic errors and also improve therapy.
