3T MRI Focuses on Comfort & Detail

3T MRI Brain Scan

With a feeling of openness combined with the ability to scan feet first, comfortable Tempur-Pedic pads, and shorter scan times, patients are now able to have a more comfortable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) experience with GE’s 3T MRI, the latest in MRI technology.

In addition to increased patient comfort, 3T MRI uses a magnetic field stronger than any other MRI technology, producing exceptional detail that allows us to scan for neurological and orthopedic disorders as well as conditions that were not previously able to be seen. Some examples of this are seizures, small brain metastasis, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, stroke, bone bruises and spinal conditions.

3T MRI is available at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – St. Francis, which also is the only hospital in Wisconsin to offer an evaluation of joint replacements using MAVRIC, software that improves image quality around metal implants.

To schedule a 3T MRI, call 414-527-5000.

Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology is a field of medicine that provides minimally invasive, image-guided procedures using the latest technology to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system.

Using technologies such as ultrasound, CT and MRI, interventional radiologists use real-time images to direct instruments throughout the body. Rather than making large incisions into the body as in traditional surgery, they can use needles and catheter tubes to treat a variety of conditions, including peripheral artery disease, varicose veins, diseases of the lymphatic system, aneurysms and acute stroke therapy. Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by interventional techniques.

Overview: Interventional Radiology

Jim Walker, MD, radiologist with Milwaukee Radiologists serving Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, explains how minimally invasive interventional radiology procedures are used to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly all organs and systems in the body:
