MR Neuro Imaging
MRI is the ultimate tool for diagnostic imaging and neuroscience research. Providing morphological images with the highest spatial resolution and unmatched soft tissue contrast as well as unique functional information of the CNS.
97% of MRI sites perform brain exams and 1 in 4 MRI scans is of the brain,1 making it one of the most commonly performed exams in neurology. But reimbursements have dropped by 45%,2 and improved throughput crucial.
