Clinics with MRT machine

In addition, it is often possible at the respective Institute of Radiology in Large Hospitals make an outpatient appointment for an MRI scan. For this it is important to do this with some lead time since it is here often long waiting lists and emergency or urgent examinations of inpatients have priority.However, due to the large capacities in the clinics and especially for very specific questions, this can still be a good alternative.

Below is a short list of a few Clinics in the Frankfurt area, which over at least one MRI machine with the respective addresses and telephone numbers:

Working principle

The abbreviation "MRT" stands for an examination which is carried out by a Magnetic resonance imaging (also called magnetic resonance imaging) is performed. This is an imaging procedure with which Sectional images of the human body. In contrast to roentgen- or Computed tomography examination (short: CT) requires magnetic resonance imaging no x-raysbut just a strong magnetic field.

In order to understand how this method of investigation works, a few must first physical principles explained. It is important to know here that every atom with an odd number of protons / neutrons has the property of rotating around itself. This phenomenon is called Spin designated, in German: Intrinsic angular momentum.

By the action of an external magnetic field, these charge carriers in the atoms can be directed in a certain direction due to the spin Atoms themselves act like small magnets. And this is exactly what happens with magnetic resonance imaging. By applying a strong external magnetic field, it is initially possible to transform said atoms in the human body into a certain one Longitudinal alignment bring to. The positive charges of the protons are oriented towards the negative side of the magnetic field. This can best be done on the hydrogen atom. Hence the MRI especially for water-containing tissues very suitable.

However, the longitudinal alignment of the atoms alone is not sufficient for a pictorial representation. A second step is necessary for this, which also requires a transverse force. This is the so-called High frequency pulsewhich causes a short displacement of the atoms from their longitudinal axis. Then the atoms go back into their longitudinal alignment (also: T1 relaxation) and give off energy in the form of heat to the environment.

It is precisely this heat that is used for imaging. This is tissue which fast thermal conductivity owns in T1 weighted Images rather bright (e.g. adipose tissue), while tissue with a lower thermal conductivity rather dark appears (e.g. liquids).

Plus there is still T2-weighted Pictures in which not the heat given off, but rather the Change in rotational movement during spin self decisive is. It is important to know that in such recordings liquids like water rather bright appear.

Due to the physical properties of magnetic resonance tomography mentioned, this examination is particularly suitable for tissues that contain a lot of fluid. Examples of this are fatty tissue, muscles, cartilage, internal organs, the brain, and tumors or foci of inflammation. For Tissue with little fluid like for example bone or a lot air like the lungs, for example, is this type of examination rather unsuitable.

advantages

The advantages of the MRI examination are certainly broad Representation of many tissues, the good image quality and the X-ray freedom. Children and pregnant women can therefore also have an MRI examination if they are asked.

disadvantage

The uncomfortable examination conditions are often mentioned as disadvantages, as the patients have to lie down in a very narrow tube that is also very noisy. In addition, this examination takes a relatively long time, so that the person examined usually has to lie down for 15 to 30 minutes (see: Duration of various MRI examinations). This is particularly uncomfortable for patients with claustrophobia, but it is entirely possible (see: MRI for claustrophobia).

The relatively strong magnetic field of 1.5 to 3 Tesla is also an exclusion criterion for people who wear any form of metal on or in the body. Wearers of pacemakers or other metal implants as well as metallic objects such as debit cards, keys or coins are therefore not allowed to enter the magnetic field.

Another disadvantage is the cost factor, since magnetic resonance imaging is many times more expensive than CT or X-ray (see: MRI costs).

In order to provide an overview of the possibilities for performing magnetic resonance imaging in Frankfurt, here is a summary of the most important addresses and key data on the respective institutes.
