AIM's full body MRI scan is one hundred per cent free of ionizing radiation. Compare that to a CT scan which exposes the patient to radiation equivalent to 70 X-Rays. Yet, CT is still a common imaging modality in public hospitals. Children are particularly susceptible to ionizing radiation; in fact, childhood exposure to CT scans [...]

Much like your fingerprints, the structure of your brain is entirely unique to you, according a new MRI study. The combination of nature and nurture--genetics and conditioning--ensures that no two brains are the same. Even identical twins, born with the same genetic code and raised in the same environment, brain structures differ. Brain MRI [...]

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is the most accurate, effective and safe diagnostic imaging choice for patients in 2018. Unlike X-Ray, CT or PET imaging which use large amounts of radiation to look inside the body, MRI achieves Images from AIM's Whole Body MRI Scan clearer and more accurate results with no ionizing radiation.

Although most people are aware that exposure to asbestos is harmful to human health, there is not yet a great deal of awareness about mesothelioma: the cancer caused by it. Mesothelioma, a deadly cancer which  most often affects membranes found in the lungs, but is also found around the heart and other organs. Asbestos is a [...]

People who regularly consume sweetened drinks--whether it's the the regular, sugary variety, or the "diet" alternative--may be at greater risk for Alzheimers and dementia, according to a new MRI study. The study, entitled Sugary beverage intake and preclinical Alzheimer's disease in the community, was published last week in the Journal of the Alzheimer's Association. The [...]

MRI may help determine depression treatment: MRI study

2017-03-29T14:25:28+00:00 March 29th, 2017|Brain MRI, Medical Imaging, MRI, MRI Research, Radiology|

A new MRI study published recently in the American Journal of Psychiatry examined the possibility of using MRI scans of of the brain to determine whether CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) or antidepressants would be the appropriate course of action for treating a patient's depression. The study, entitled  was performed by researchers from Emory University in [...]

In something of a Catch-22, osteoarthritis patients are often instructed to exercise to alleviate some of their pain symptoms--but those same pain symptoms may prevent an exercise routine from being formed. Although many sufferers of osteoarthritis may wish to work out, the possibility of further injury is a daunting one. Recently, Canadian researchers tackled the [...]
