Aperçu Rapide: Qu’est-ce que l’imagerie par résonance magnétique (IRM) ? A quoi sert elle dans l’Ataxie ?

Qu’est-ce que c’est? L’imagerie par résonance magnétique (IRM) est un type de technologie utilisé pour prendre des photos détaillées du corps. Il est couramment utilisé pour détecter des anomalies dans le corps, diagnostiquer des maladies et surveiller régulièrement les patients en cours de traitement. Il peut générer des images tridimensionnelles Read More…

Snapshot: What is Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)?

What is it? Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of technology used to take detailed pictures of the body. It is commonly used to detect abnormalities in the body, diagnose diseases, and to regularly monitor patients who are undergoing treatments. It can generate three-dimensional images of non-bony tissues, such Read More…
