BoneMRI

Bone imaging with MRI

In an ideal world, a single medical imaging exam would generate 3D images of both bone and the soft tissue without the use of harmful radiation. However, in orthopedics and neurology, radiologists and the treating physicians now have to choose between an MRI scan for soft tissue and an X-ray based CT scan for bone information. This results in suboptimal information for diagnosis and treatment planning, complex workflows and high healthcare costs.
MRIguidance now brings this ideal world to reality with BoneMRI. BoneMRI is a software solution that generates a CT-like image to complement the soft tissue images derived from an MRI scan. For the clinicians BoneMRI works in the background in a seamless workflow without the need for new desktop applications.

Patients suffering from radiculopathy often get an MRI exam to assess the status of soft tissue structures like spinal cord, nerve roots and intervertebral discs. BoneMRI adds 3D information on potential bone involvement, relating to disc displacement or degeneration, osteophyte formation and foraminal narrowing, in patients suspected of a herniated disc or foraminal stenosis.

In patients suspected for spine disorders, MRI is the first choice as a diagnostic spine imaging tool since it offers excellent soft tissue contrast enabling visualization of compressed or damaged neural tissue, where CT is generally used in the diagnosis of structural changes. BoneMRI can be of value for the further assessment of potential involvement of osseous tissues. In addition, BoneMRI can be used for surgical planning and navigation as it offers 3D visualisation of the osseous structures for accurate geometric assessment, which also allows adequate inventory management.

Adding BoneMRI to your scan protocol has the advantage of depicting structural bone lesions and active inflammation simultaneously with in arthritis patients. This is of added diagnostic value for spondyloarthritis of the sacroiliac joint. Moreover, adding BoneMRI to your scan protocol is of great added value to diagnose femoroacetabular impingement of the hip joint.
