While Image Intensifiers are indeed capable of providing high-quality images, the quality may decrease over time. Another advantage of the Flat Panel Detector is the ability to magnify without having to reduce scale. And also the higher resolution offered by Flat Panel Detectors makes them the obvious fit for better image quality.

Image Intensifier C-Arms are available at much lower prices, and they often suffice for general use in many cases.

MRI machines have had significant developments over the years. Conventional MRI machines are known for being large tunnel-shaped devices that may seem scary and can sometimes trigger claustrophobia in patients. In an effort to overcome the issues faced in closed MRI systems, Open MRI machines were developed. The following are six reasons why an open MRI machine might be better for patients than a closed MRI.

  1. Open MRI machines help with claustrophobia.
    Since conventional MRI machines are “closed-in” and tend to trigger claustrophobia, open MRI machines are just the solution. These machines were developed to make patients feel more comfortable for their procedure.
  2. People of all shapes and sizes can use these machines.
    Overweight and obese people might not be able to use Closed MRI machines since the tunnel might not be of sufficient space. Open MRI machines allow people with different body shapes to use these machines more comfortably.
  3. Easier to use on children.
    Children tend to not sit still for more than five minutes when they are inside a large and enclosed tunnel, but open MRIs can help children feel more relaxed and calm as opposed to closed MRI machines.
  4. Cost effective.
    Open MRI procedures are typically less expensive than closed MRI procedures. That way each patient can save more money in addition to increased satisfaction and comfort.

MRI scans are of different types that serve imaging of various locations in the human body. Depending on the types of MRI scans that you intend to perform, the MRI scanner that might be best-suited for the purpose may change. Therefore, this highly invested decision of which type of MRI machine to purchase needs to be well thought-out. And one of those factors to be taken into consideration is the intended types of scans to be performed.

Functional MRI or FMRI scans are used by neurosurgeons all over the world to map brain function. The brain activity can be measured by taking into consideration the flow of blood to particular areas. The activation of neurons means an increased flow of blood. Patients are often asked to perform some sort of activity during which the brain activity is measured. These results are compared to resting state results for further analysis.

FMRIs prove another leap forward. With the advent of fMRI, there is no need to undergo surgery, shots or be exposed to ionizing radiation. Instead, the brain activity of healthy and diseased brains can be mapped effectively without invasive procedures.

Mapping brain activity to critical functions is not an easy task with the standard scans. But FMRI makes it possible to test the actual function of brain tissues, rather than just focusing on what they look like.

That makes way for the possibility of analyzing the effects of brain injuries and strokes. Not just that. But also neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases and even motor neuron disease. The ability to study the effects of all these ailments far efficiently and safely is now available with the advent of FMRI.

MRI machines have become necessities to medical facilities all around the world. Looking to purchase a Used Philips MRI Machine for your department or clinic?
