In this fast developing world that is being made progress in every field of life, so how can the medical field be left behind in this race of development? Through this paper, I will cover one of the critical innovations in the medical technological field i.e. the introduction of the MRI in the diagnosis progress. This paper will describe approximately all the innovations that have been made in the category of MRI that still in the progress and also that are going to innovate in the future. These changes have totally changed the medicine field.
Part 01: Historical Journey of MRI in field of Medical Technologies
First introduced in 1950 to treat cataract by placing this lens permanently by the British ophthalmologist Dr. Harold Ridley Nikola Tesla discovered the Rotating Magnetic Field in 1882 in Budapest, Hungary. This was a fundamental discovery in physics.
Laboratory in Columbia University, New York City, observed the quantum phenomenon dubbed nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
Mike Goldsmith, one of the graduate students cobbled a wearable antenna coil to monitor the hydrogen broadcast detected by the coil.
Part 02: Importance of MRI in Medical Sciences
MRI is particularly useful for the scanning and detection of abnormalities in soft tissue structures in the body like the cartilage tissues and soft organs like the brain or the heart.
MRI scanners have helped the biotechnology world a whole lot since it has changed the way x-rays now operate.
Part 03: Structure of MRI and How Does It Work
The most important part of an MRI scanner is the magnet.
Most MRI scanners use a superconductive magnet.
There are also three Gradient magnets in MRI scanners.
Part 04: Uses and Implementation of MRI Technology
The MRI scanner is cylindrical tube surrounded by a circular magnet that contains the magnet and detectors. The patient lies on a moveable examination table that slides in and out of the center of the magnet.
There is also the specialized computer that processes all the imaging information, it is placed in a different room.
Patients must remove all metals, credit cards and other belongings before being placed into the scanner
There will be an interview here as primary research.
Part 05: Advantages/Disadvantages of MRI Technology
Advantages associated with MRI Technology are:
There is no involvement of any kind of radiations in the MRI, so it is safe for the people who can be vulnerable to the effects of radiations such as pregnant women or babies.
MRI scan can provide information about the blood circulation throughout the body and blood vessels and also enabling the detection of problems related to the blood circulation.
Disadvantages associated with MRI Technology are:
MRI scan is done in an enclosed space, so the people who are claustrophobic, i.e. fearful of being in a closely enclosed surface, are facing problems with MRI to be done.
MRI scans involve really loud noises while processing because they involve a really high amount of electric current supply.
MRI scanners are usually expensive.
I will summarize the main points from Parts 1-5 and end with a statement that ties the importance of MRI Technology into history.
