Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT) delivers good photos of soft body parts, such as, for instance, intervertebral disc tissue, compressed nerves, tumors, and inflamed swellings. With this completely pain-free, modern method of "illuminating" people, magnetic resonance imaging delivers photos of the body's interior that are as razor sharp and informative as those in an anatomy book.
In particular soft body parts are presented in up to now unattainable sharp contrast. And what's more, these photographs can be made in every layer necessary with an extraordinarily high resolution - with an attainable size of detail of less than one millimeter.
For spinal cord examinations, magnetic resonance imaging scanner is certainly the currently best of all photographic methods. Owing to the impressive contrast between the soft tissues, abnormal changes can be reliably identified. Also, the photographs are possible entirely without magnetic resonance or radiation.
