Peripheral nerve MRI is a modern technique, which is increasingly widely used clinically. The ability to make images in detail, non-invasive, safe, without radiation exposure are the outstanding strengths of peripheral nerve MRI scans.

1. What is peripheral nerve mri?

Peripheral nerve resonance imaging or peripheral nerve MRI is a modern imaging medium for more detailed and clear images, specific to the diagnosis and detection of peripheral nerve diseases. Peripheral nerve MRI is a technique that has many outstanding advantages such as

  • This is a non-invasive, highly secure technique.
  • Patients receiving peripheral nerve MRI scans are not exposed to X-rays as they do with a computer ctectclass.
  • Contrast in MRI scans derived from gadolinium has a lower rate of allergenicity and antigen than iodine-derived contrasts used in computer-class scans.
  • Post-traumatic nerve damage is detected quickly
  • The value is correlation with the corresponding bioeer biological analysis.

Peripheral nerve MRI is in place at a high rate in patients with back pain, leg pain, or suspected peripheral nerve damage such as femoral nerves, horse tangles, or dorsal and lumbar nerves. With outstanding advantages, peripheral nerve MRI scans are increasingly preferred. However, some disadvantages of this imaging technique also exist such as high cost, limiting the subject to affordability, not classification of the degree of nerve damage and not evaluatiging the long nerves in a slice.

Patients should be aware of the notes before, during and after an MRI scan to ensure their safety.

2. Peripheral nerve resonance imaging is in order to be in order to

Peripheral nerve damage is the main group of diseases that are in the peripheral nerve MRI scan. With the ability to detect structural abnormalities at a sophisticated level, peripheral nerve MRI scans have a high specificity and sensitivity in the diagnosis and monitoring of disease treatment.

Peripheral nerve MRI scans are usually in place in the following situations:

  • Suspected neurological injury
  • Lumbar disease is caused by the same lumbar lumbar disorder
  • Movement disorders of the lower 2 30s and/or upper 2 30s are suspected to be caused by neurological diseases.
  • Tumors in the muscle area, blood vessels or surrounding lesions pinch nerves
  • Neuro-infiltration tumors, neuroblastomas
  • Detection of neuromasses that are migrating from other agencies.

3. Contraintical resonance imaging of peripheral nerves

Peripheral nerve MRI scans are evaluated as a safe and less harmful technique for the photographer. However, not all patients are prescribed peripheral nerve MRI scans.

Contraintical imaging of peripheral nerve re resonates includes:

  • Patients have in person materials replaced with metal that are from such as some types of pacemakers, artificial heart valves, artificial cochleas, means of combining bones such as nails, screw splints, hemorrn stopping clips used in the treatment of brain aneurysms, … The machine's from field can cause many operations or interrupt the operation of these devices, causing many dangerous complications for the person.
  • Carrying complete fragments or bullets in the body
  • Metallic or metallic foreign objects in the head of the neck, eye sockets,
  • The patient has closed chamber fear syndrome because the resym resonance imaging technique requires the patient to lie still under the cavity of the machine for a long time.

4. What should the patient prepare before the scan?

To ensure the safety and quality of images, patients should keep in mind and comply with the following:

  • No need to fast before shooting. With the exception of a prescription peripheral nerve MRI scan, the person who takes the scan needs to fully fast before proceeding for about 4 hours.
  • Collaborate with healthcare workers in declaring a history of history to exclude contraint allees.
  • Do not bring jewelry such as earrings, necklaces, watches, phones and cards from the shooting room.
  • Keep the mentality comfortable, not overly worried.

5. Steps to perform peripheral nerve MRI scans

Peripheral nerve MRI scans should be performed in accordance with the procedure to ensure patient safety, as well as ensure final image quality:

  • Prepare the camera and necessary tools including medicines and medical supplies.
  • Harness patient information to exclude the contraintices of MRI scans.
  • Consult, explain carefully to patients and accompanying family about the peripheral nerve MRI procedure.
  • Instruct patients to remove jewelry and jewelry, change uniforms to enter the shooting room.
  • Instruct patients to follow the instructions of the shooting room technician.
  • Place the patient on the shooting chair in a position of lying on his back.
  • Select the coils by region that wants to survey the nerves. Peripheral nerve surveys in the chest and in the lumbar region of the same amputee use various specialized coils.
  • Insert the area to be surveyed into the machine compartment with the field area.
  • Set the specifications, select the pulse chain depending on the doctor's decree. Pulse strings and applicable order vary from case to case.
  • The total shooting time can last continuously for 1 hour.
  • The patient went outside the shooting room and waited for the results.
