TOP-5 MRI Scanners

Medical devices that proved its superiority over time
Even if you've never undergone an MRI scan yourself, you've probably heard the term on various medical TV shows or in everyday conversation. In case you aren't sure what it is, MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. It is a diagnostic imaging technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of your body's internal organs and tissues. An MRI machine can also produce three-dimensional images that may be viewed from several different angles.
3 Tesla MRI: This type of closed MRI uses magnetic fields that have double the strength of a traditional MRI machine, thus producing an even more detailed image in less time
The strength of a 3 Tesla MRI yields myriad benefits for radiologists and their patients
The unit of measurement used to quantify the strength of a magnetic field in an MRI machine is called a Tesla (T). Most MRI scanners operate at a strength of 1.5 Tesla. A 3 Tesla MRI, however, operates at twice the normal strength, providing a greater signal-to-noise ratio, which is a major determinant in generating the highest quality image
It is commonly used to identify the signs of stroke, tumors, or aneurysms in the brain; to examine the heart and circulatory system for damage resulting from a heart attack or heart disease, or blockages in the blood vessels; to look for conditions such as arthritis, disc disease, or bone infections in the bones and joints; or to analyze the state of internal organs like the liver, kidneys, uterus, ovaries, or prostate.
However, let's still determine which
MRI machines are the best and rare?!
