MRI's lack of ionizing radiation and its noninvasiveness are making it increasingly popular, and radiologists are playing a vital role in its implementation and further development.
Chester, UK (PRWEB) May 26, 2011
Radiology portal AuntMinnieEurope.com has launched its new MRI Digital Community, a special section devoted to coverage of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The new section is made possible by the support of GE Healthcare.
The medical use of MRI has developed rapidly during the past three decades, and today it is used to examine almost every organ of the body. The technology is particularly valuable for providing detailed imaging of the brain, spinal cord, and musculoskeletal system. MRI examinations are also important for the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of cancer because they can reveal the limits of a tumor, which contributes to more precise radiation therapy and surgery.
The new MRI Digital Community will enable AuntMinnieEurope.com members to follow key technology advances and trends with the latest clinical, socioeconomic, and business news on MRI, according to Editor in Chief Philip Ward.
"MRI is an exciting and constantly changing field of medicine," Ward said. "The modality's lack of ionizing radiation and its noninvasiveness are making it increasingly popular, and radiologists are playing a vital role in its implementation and further development."
“MRI shows more and more clinical promise and benefits from tremendous technological advances. AuntMinnieEurope.com is a fantastic forum to learn and share information, enabling the European MR community to remain up-to-date with the latest developments, news, and trends in this fast-paced and exciting area. At GE Healthcare, we are glad to contribute to its development,” said Stefano Vagliani, MR general manager at GE Healthcare.
