PROFILE OF THE MR CENTRE IN POPRAD
The magnetic resonance centre MR Poprad, s.r.o., is one of three most modern magnetic resonance centres of Pro Diagnostic Group, a.s. in eastern Slovakia. In Poprad, we work with the high-performance PHILIPS 3,0T Ingenia Omega HP system, which allows fast, accurate and non-invasive examinations. The centre is located in the Poprad hospital so in-patients also have easy access to the centre.

“The MR system PHILIPS 3,0T Ingenia Omega HP provides many special applications, which coupled with years of experience of our staff, allow extensive clinical diagnostics.”
Examinations of the brain of adults and children, including diffusion imaging (DWI), venous Bold application (3D T2 *), isotropic 3D brain imaging with T1 and T2 weighting used for detailed assessment of morphology for pre-operative neuronavigation, fusion with PET and volumetry.
Advanced MR brain examination: All perfusion techniques (T2*, T1 and ASL), spectroscopy (SVS, CSI), tractography (DTI). It allows more accurate diagnostics of brain diseases and pre-operative planning of the most demanding brain surgeries.
Full spinal canal imaging by a multi-sequential and multi-position examination. MARS- multiartifact reduction sequence, the metal artifact reduction sequence in spinal canal.
Special dedicated coils for different body parts with the device’s digital technology allow imaging of lesions of cartilages, tendons, ligaments and bone marrow with unique resolution. For more details in the cartilages imaging are 3D WATS sequences – water selective sequence.
