Whole Body MRI | TIPO INFORMS YOU | Giving New Hope to Patients with Cancer

Whole­body MRI is a noninvasive screening technique that acquires images of the entire body in the coronal plane only using fast magnetic resonance pulse sequences

While scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown.

Why whole body MRI MRI Screening is the systematic examination of the body to detect unsuspected disease. By definition, the optimal candidate for a screening study is without signs (physical finding) or symptoms (feelings) that suggest a particular disease.

Children who have mild scoliosis are monitored closely, usually with X-rays, to see if the curve is getting worse.


MRI is a safest modality , both the imaging system itself and the intravenous contrast agent used. The powerful magnetic field and radiofrequency energy of MRI have not been shown to cause cancer or fetal abnormalities, unlike the ionizing radiation (x­rays) used in CT that is a known cause of cancer and fetal anomalies

An Evolving Art

Although at present the reliability and accuracy of MRI at detecting diseases of certain organs, including liver, brain, spine, pancreas, and kidneys, are extremely high and imaging of the lungs is reasonable,
