Presentation Description

Hardware diagnostic accuracy is determined by the appropriateness of a particular method. MRI Scan cost is relevant in those cases when it is necessary to explore soft tissue, nervous system, muscles, joints, etc. However, the skeletal system is rendered with less precision than CT, because skeletal tissues contain only a small amount of hydrogen protons.

CT scan cost or MRI Choosing the best method of diagnosis Identifying the causes of the disease as well as the diagnosis is critical. They precede any treatment and are particular importance- correct diagnosis affects the rate of recovery. Sometimes a therapeutic examination but in severe cases cannot do without specialized diagnostic equipment which includes and computer and magnetic resonance imaging allow the detection of a significant number of diseases of various body sections. Lets look at each study and define - what better way Which method is more informative and more accurate Hardware diagnostic accuracy is determined by the appropriateness of a particular method. MRI Scan cost is relevant in those cases when it is necessary to explore soft tissue nervous system muscles joints etc. However the skeletal system is rendered with less precision than CT because skeletal tissues contain only a small amount of hydrogen protons. Therefore in diseases associated with tumors brain and spinal cord ligaments muscles joints the doctor will most likely prescribe you an MRI. But when it comes to diagnosis of pathologies of the skull bones teeth vascular thorax e.g. tuberculosis and pneumonia thyroid gland and spinal cord - the preferred method would be computed tomography. CT and MRI studies: which is cheaper MRI Scan Cost- a "young" method of diagnosis the procedure used for the modern device with a complex structure and operating rules. In addition the amount of time spent in one study ten times higher compared to CT. Therefore the method of magnetic resonance imaging is considered to be more expensive. On average the difference in price between surveys of the same card body with the help of these two diagnostic methods around 1000-2000 rubles. For example the CT Scan Cost of the spine egment will cost lower than that of the MRI of the area. MRI or CT scan - which is better Summarizing we can conclude that the safety level of the clear leader is to study using magnetic resonance imaging. If we compare the two methods on the criterion of the accuracy of the images the result depends on the study area: the organs with high calcium content to explore better by CT and MRI - a more suitable procedure for the diagnosis of soft tissue diseases. Regarding cost the preferred embodiment is a computer tomography- this method of research is cheaper. But each diagnostic method has its limitations. CT scan cost is contraindicated in pregnant women and young children because of the special susceptibility of the organic tissue to radiation. Examination often performed using iodinated contrast agent - from such a procedure is necessary to refrain patients with thyroid diseases renal failure a severe form of diabetes. Contraindications for MRI is the presence of the body of the patient and the ferromagnetic metal objects. Under the influence of the magnetic field they can change their position and bring harm to human health. Therefore magnetic resonance imaging is not indicated for people with pacemakers metal implants and intracranial metallic hemostatic clips.
