There are so many MRI facilities within the Naples area to choose from. Do you, as a patient, know why NASA MRI would be the best choice?
It is the patient's choice to choose where they prefer to have their MRI completed. But, the biggest advantage for choosing NASA MRI would be; the physicians are able to view the scan as soon as it is completed, we have a physician on staff while you are in the scanner, if there is an acute problem we can take the appropriate measures at that time, and we treat every patient as they were our only patient. We consider every patient to be our #1 priority and with our thoroughness, we try to accommodate every patient to leave our center with peace of mind. NASA provides a very professional work environment allowing the patients to feel comfortable while in office and we provide flexible hours to fit each patient's needs.
Not all MRI machines are created equal.
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) When protons are placed in a magnetic field, they become capable of receiving and then transmitting electromagnetic energy. The strength of the transmitted energy is proportional to the number of protons in the tissue. Signal strength is modified by properties of each proton's micro-environment, such as it's mobility and the local homogeneity of the magnetic field. MRI signal can be "weighted" to accentuate some properties and not others.
When an additional magnetic field is superimposed, one which is carefully varied in strength at different points in space, each point in space has a unique radio frequency at which the signal is received and transmitted. This makes constructing an image possible. It represents the spatial encoding of frequency, just like a piano.
