Thoracic spine meningioma MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging of the thoracic spine

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the thoracic spine is a non-invasive layer-by-layer diagnosis of lesions of the lungs, bone tissues, circulatory system, and spinal cord in this area. The method is safe due to the absence of harmful radiation, as in other examinations. Diagnostics is used to determine degenerative diseases that strike the muscles pathology, ligamentous apparatus and spinal canal. Thoracic spine MRI helps to detect various diseases:

  • meningioma;
  • ganglion cyst;
  • tumors and metastasis;
  • herniated disc;
  • ependymoma;
  • epidural lipomatosis;
  • hemangioma;
  • neurofibroma;

In the clinic JSC «Medicine» the procedure of magnetic resonance imaging is carried out around the clock. The power of the MRI machine in the radiology department is 3 Tesla. This allows to get clear-layered images of the vertebrae, adjacent tissues and internal organs with a 1 mm step.

To improve the quality of images and study the blood circulation of the thoracic spine meningioma, a contrast agent is used. The medication is administered intravenously before the procedure on an empty stomach or 5-6 hours after eating.
