The Istituto Radiologico Gortan in Trieste performs magnetic resonance examinations using a high field equipment (1.5 Head). This procedure allows for very detailed studies of all body districts.
The investigation will result in images of very high quality and with a reduced time of execution.
High-field MRI can be used for the study of:

  • central and peripheral nervous system (encephalon and spinal cord)
  • abdominal organs
  • pelvic organs, in particular prostate and female gynecological apparatus

Performance of magnetic resonance examination

The latest generation of MRI equipment is designed for maximum patient comfort. The size of the tunnel and its brightness allow those undergoing the examination excellent visibility to the outside, eliminating or reducing any problems of claustrophobia.
