Cardiology MRI Ultrasound

About Cardiology MRI Ultrasound

BIOMED SCAN RMN resonance imaging (MRI) is an extremely useful tool for diagnosing a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders. It is a noninvasive technique that provides excellent structural and functional information about the heart and blood vessels, including their blood flow, size and shape. It also shows the anatomy and abnormalities of the blood vessels connecting to the heart. MRI is particularly useful for the evaluation of pericardial effusions, valvular disease and congenital heart diseases such as cardiac anomalies or malformations.

Understanding Cardiology MRI vs. Ultrasound: Which Imaging Technique Is Right for You

MRI is especially suitable for assessing the tissue structure and function of fibrotic tissues and scars. It is also superior to ultrasound for investigating the right ventricle and pulmonary valve (the valve between the right ventricle and pulmonary artery) because of its ability to differentiate the various structures within the heart including muscle, fat, water, fibrotic tissue/scar, and blood vessels. It is also more suitable for assessing the great vessels such as aorta and pulmonary arteries because of its ability to provide precise measurements.

A cardiac MRI may be combined with a stress echo to assess heart function during activity, which is also known as exercise testing. For this test, the patient will be given an IV medication for about two minutes which increases their heart rate to simulate exercise. This will allow the doctor to assess the effect of the medication on the heart and blood flow and any changes in the size or position of the arteries and valves.
