Benefits Utilizing MRI for Litigation
MRI is the gold standard for diagnosing and assessing soft tissue injuries in personal injury claimants.
MRI Scans Are Booked Within 24 Hours Of Receiving The Completed Referral Form
MRI Scans Occur Within 1-2 Weeks Of Receiving The Completed Referral
MRI is universally accepted not only because of its accuracy but also because of the objectivity of its ﬁndings. It matters not whether the claimant is sent for the test at the request of the plaintiff or defendant, the resulting report will be the same.
Urgent MRI Scans can be performed within 24 hours
Comprehensive Radiological Reports Are Provided Within 24 Hours Following The MRI Scan
MRI results can be accessed through secure, encrypted, password protected hospital portal within 24 hours following MRI scan completion.
Susceptibility Weighted Imaging Scans
Susceptibility Weighted Imaging is a new MRI sequence that relies on the magnetic susceptibility of tissues or compounds in the brain, such as iron-rich hemosiderin, which is a byproduct of hemorrhage.
Because of the Blood Brain Barrier, hemosiderin deposits remain in the brain for a very long time after the initial trauma.
SWI has been shown in several studies and in clinical application to be much more sensitive in detecting micro-hemorrhages than conventional methods, such as T2*-gradient echo (including 3 Tesla imaging).
Benefits Utilizing SWI for Litigation
Provides the highest level of sensitivity and detectability of the smallest brain injuries
Non-invasive, non-contrast imaging
Provides high resolution visualization of abnormalities caused by small hemorrhages and microscopic tears
Objective findings may be utilized to address an injured Insured clients' Minor Injury Guideline (MIG) status either placing them within the MIG or outside of the MIG.
SWI Can Accurately Diagnose:
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Ischemic Brain Diseases
