Imaging is a common method used in emergency rooms to diagnose appendicitis. Like with many illnesses, often the effects are unseen on the surface, so imaging is crucial to make sure proper treatment takes place. A recent study looked into the efficacy of MRI scans versus CT scans when it came to appendicitis.
While the findings show that there was no significant difference between the two modalities and accuracy and speed, it is important to note MRI is a good option to reduce radiation effects. However, one of the most common complaints when it comes to MRI over CT, is the noise and claustrophobia of an MRI scanner. Fortunately these are problems with easy solutions.
Here at Sound Imaging, we have a variety of options for MRI patient comfort with two of our MRI devices, MRI Visors and MRI Stereo. These two devices are excellent options when it comes to helping patients, especially pediatric patients, overcome anxiety about their MRI scan.
