Magnetic Resonance


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses radio waves and a magnetic field to create detailed images of organs and tissues. MRI is highly effective in diagnosing a number of conditions by showing the difference between normal and diseased tissues of the body, including​

  • Blood vessels
  • Breasts
  • Bones and joints
  • Organs in the pelvis, chest, and abdomen
  • Spinal injuries
  • Tendon and ligament tears

Products include complete MRI and scanning systems or MR magnets for diagnostic purposes on humans, and MR compatible accessory devices such as radio frequency coils, patient monitoring devices, and stereotactic localization devices.

MITA is dedicated to the advancement of medical science, the improvement of patient care, and, in particular, the contributions that high quality, innovative medical imaging technologies make toward achieving these goals. Members create industry Standards that help ensure patient safety and market acceptance. They also track pertinent regulations and emerging issues that affect magnetic resonance imaging.

Activities

Reviews and coordinates development of MR technical standards and specifications, both within MITA membership and in cooperation with other organizations

Applications

  • Diagnostic imaging, which is used to determine the location and extent of targeted molecules specific to the disease being assessed; and
  • Therapy, which is used to treat specific disease-targeted molecules.
