A reevaluation of MRI scans provided by a radiology expert. The service is available wherever there is an internet. All you need is a PC or a smartphone.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - is a diagnostic procedure used to produce detailed high resolution cross-sectional images of the human body.
An MRI is particularly effective for imaging soft tissues in the body, such as the brain, spinal cord, ligaments (joints) or internal organs. Unlike computed tomography, this kind of medical scan uses not X-rays, but a strong magnetic field.
Depending on the clinical issue, a contrast agent (usually gadolinium-based) is sometimes applied to improve the visibility of certain structures or processes.
The final result of the examination is a radiologist's report with a description of the images and conclusions.
