Not all Full Body MRI Scans are created equal. Our Radiologists have assembled unique MRI equipment for generating and reviewing images to advance the field of diagnostic imaging with Advanced Cancer Detection Techniques. Our full body MRI machine, unlike other MRI machines currently available, produces images comparable to a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scanner, without the radiation.

Diffusion Weighted Imaging with Background Suppression (DWIBS) is able to distinguish a tumor in normal looking tissue. This is because unlike other MRI sequences, DWIBS shows the relatively dense molecular structure of the rapidly dividing tumor. This sequence was designed to achieve images similar to a PET scan. Research has shown DWIBS achieves a diagnostic confidence comparable to that of a PET scan. A facility with this unique capability plays an important role when choosing an imaging centre that’s right for you.

Until recently, most MRI machines were unable to perform a full body examination–they could only image individual parts where the study had to be stopped and the patient repositioned in a piecemeal fashion. Our machine is one of a few machines in the country that allows full body MRI imaging from head to toe.

We perform a thorough study of the brain and entire spine, with a complete systematic review of all of the abdominal and pelvic organs. We believe in the central role of comprehensive risk factor assessment and screening technologies in the early detection of disease.
