Happy Birthday to Nikola Tesla !!
In 1960, in honor of Tesla, the General Conference on Weights and Measures for the International System of Units dedicated the term "tesla" to the SI unit measure for magnetic field strength.
How strong is your magnetic personality? !!!

This image is demonstrating an Achilles Tendon Tear, have you ever had one of those? It is the strongest and thickest tendon in the body. It often requires surgery to repair, but other non-invasive treatments are utilized.
Can you guess what pathology these MRI images are demonstrating ?
Symptoms include: pain on weight bearing, frequently after only a short time. The nature of the pain varies widely among individuals. Some people experience shooting pain affecting the contiguous halves of two toes.
Morton's neuroma (also known as Morton's metatarsalgia, Morton's neuralgia, plantar neuroma and intermetatarsal neuroma) is a benign neuroma of an intermetatarsal plantar nerve, most commonly of the second and third intermetatarsal spaces (between 2nd-3rd and 3rd-4th metatarsal heads).
We're starting the month of March with a BANG !! Call us for daily appointments !! ....
Yesterday's image of the knee was demonstrating a Baker's Cyst. A Baker's Cyst is a benign swelling of the semimembranous or more rarely some other synovial bursa found behind the knee joint.
Here's a bit of trivia for you today....Can you name the pathology shown in this image of the knee ?
Coils are used in MRI to help obtain an image of the desired body part. Only the body part surrounded by the coil will get the detailed imaging, even though you may be entirely in the magnet. Specific coils work on specific body parts.
Today we mourn the loss of our fellow medical colleagues from the Vein Guys office. Such a tragic time for the families and staff. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.
Boxes of candy for all of our patients today !!

MRI's of extremities can be interesting because of the bony detail, this is an image of a hand. The patient may have carpal tunnel syndrome or a ganglion cyst causing pain, this diagnostic imaging may help determine the problem.
A Standing and/or Sitting MRI, there are none locally here in Augusta. But thought it would be interesting for people to take a look at one, just so they'd know what it looked like. There are benefits to both upright and supine (the most common) MRI's.
The biggest and most important component in an MRI system is the magnet. The magnet in an MRI system is rated using a unit of measure known as a Tesla. This unit of measure was named in honor of Nikola Tesla, a scientist known for his contribution to the A/C electrical system design. Another unit of measure commonly used with magnets is the gauss (1 Tesla = 10,000 gauss). The magnets in use today in MRI are in the 0.5-Tesla to 3.0-Tesla range, or 5,000 to 30,000 gauss. Extremely powerful magnets -- up to 60 Tesla -- are used in research. Compared with the Earth's 0.5-gauss magnetic field, you can see how incredibly powerful these magnets are.
If you've ever had a torn rotator cuff tear in your shoulder, this is what it could look like. The bright fluid around the injury site on an MRI, usually indicates there has been an injury or trauma. This is how our body responds.
