Magnetic resonance screening

There can be problems with diagnosis when dealing with atypical developments of an illness. Sometimes the patient’s complaints tend to be contradictory and may raise suspicion of a variety of illnesses, which requires clarification and in-depth investigation.

Magnetic resonance screening – early diagnosis of illnesses Magnetic resonance screening

Magnetic resonance screening method is suitable for early diagnosis of illnesses. This method can quickly and efficiently diagnose the illness in its’ early stages. Unlike ordinary magnetic resonance imaging method, magnetic resonance screening is quicker, cheaper, more general, it provides first-time diagnosis of the pathology.

Magnetic resonance screening is suitable for examining the head and lower back examinations.

For the brain in the case of:

  • unexplained etiology headaches,
  • suspected intracranial volume process,
  • hydrocephalus,
  • atrophic changes in the brain,
  • ischemic changes.

Lumbar spine in the case of:

  • pain in the lumbar spine,
  • intervertebral disc herniation and protrusion,
  • degenerative spinal issues,
  • vertebral fractures,
  • primary and secondary spinal tumours.

It should be noted that in the case of confirming a pathology, additional examinations may be needed!

Magnetic resonance screening is not suitable for patients with already diagnosed pathologies, postoperative result evaluation and monitoring, as well as diagnostics with the use of contrast agents.

Magnetic resonance examination method provides considerably more information than X-ray, ultrasound and computed tomography examinations. With the help electromagnetic fields radio frequency wave impulses, high definition images of various organs and parts of the body, this allows to diagnose the illness correctly.

Magnetic resonance imaging quality depends on two basic components – machines on which the examination is carried out and the doctor who describes the examination. It is important that invasive radiologists performing the descriptions specialize in certain examinations.

In clinic DiaMed descriptions are done by the best radiologists in Latvia, trusted by both patients and doctors: professor Kārlis Kupčs (blood vessels), dr. Sarmīte Dzelzīte (head examinations and soft tissue), dr. Ingūna Bridāne (joints), dr. Evija Olmane (abdominal examinations, head and spinal examinations), dr. Uldis Raits (head and spinal examinations), dr. Justīne Deičmane (joints), dr. Jolanta Rozentāle (head and spinal examinations), dr. Ingūna Otisone (head and spinal examinations).

Magnetic resonance screening can be done both with referral from the treating doctor and the patient’s own initiative

The specialist, who performs the examination, will tell the patient about the examination procedure and provide guidance on the activities carried out during the procedure.  There are roaring sounds in the room, but the effect of the magnetic field cannot be felt.

This method is not suitable for young children and patients, who feel severe pain, as during the examination it is needed to keep calm. Similarly, it is not suitable for patients with claustrophobia, in this case the doctor should be informed.

Magnetic resonance imaging should not be performed on people with pacemakers, nerve stimulators, inner ear implants, aneurysm clips in the brain, other metallic foreign objects. No metal objects in the room of magnetic resonance imaging procedure!

The examination lasts on average 20 – 60 minutes, the results can be obtained immediately after the examination, the description of the examination can be obtained within one working day. The patient personally agrees on how the results will be received in the clinics reception.
