Study Notes

Body Composition

  • The human body is comprised of a significant percentage of water.

MRI

  • When a strong magnetic field is applied in MRI, protons react by aligning either parallel or anti-parallel to the magnetic field.

CT Scan vs MRI

  • CT scan and MRI differ in terms of imaging characteristics.
  • The primary difference between CT scan and MRI is not explicitly stated, but it can be inferred that CT scan uses X-rays while MRI uses magnetic fields.

Contrast Agents

  • It is important to be cautious when using dyes for increasing color contrast in medical imaging to avoid adverse reactions.
  • A medical imaging technique that uses a contrast solute injected into the patient's body is CT scan.
  • Iodine-based dyes are frequently used in CT scans for contrast enhancement.

Medical Imaging

  • Water composition within the human body is significant in MRI.
  • CT scan can help in diagnosing brain conditions.
  • Analyzing the 'tags' in the text can provide information about the patient's condition.
  • CT scan can identify conditions such as tumors, bleeding, and blood clots in the brain.
