    The nature of 3T MRI scanning makes it especially useful in many clinical applications. The superior image clarity produced by 3T is particularly beneficial for imaging tumors and other pathological conditions involving the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal and vascular systems.

    Other special applications include advanced brain imaging such as:

    • Brain spectroscopy
    • Brain perfusion imaging
    • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
    • Tractography
    • Arterial Spin Label (ASL) imaging
    • FA (fractional anisotrophy) mapping
    • Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI)

    3T MRI provides the superior image quality required for preoperative planning, post-surgical follow-up, and regular and long-term monitoring. 3T MRI can be used alone or in conjunction with other tests, increasing the possibility of earlier diagnosis and treatment and more positive outcomes.
