Magnetic Resonance Imaging
and CT Scanner

The 3.0 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanner and 64 slice CT Scanner offer our patients the latest state of the art technology. Learn More

At University Diagnostic Institute (UDI), we have a high field strength (1.5 Tesla) Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanner, and an ultra-high field 3.0 Tesla MRI scanner which allow us to perform specialized exams tailored to our patients' individualized needs.

Cutting-edge High-Field MRI in Tampa

Due to cutting-edge technology, our two high field strength MRI scanners (one at 1.5 Tesla and one at 3.0 Tesla) produce superior image quality, increased resolution, and shorter exam times. This specialized technology includes:

  • BOLD Functional Imaging (fMRI)
    To depict functional activation of eloquent neuroanatomical regions of the brain during tasks such as hand movement or speech
  • Perfusion MRI
    Imaging directed at obtaining information regarding blood perfusion of the brain; useful for stroke and brain tumor imaging tasks
  • Diffusion Imaging (DTI)
    Performed as part of every MRI scan of the brain, these rapidly aquired images are crucial for early dignosis of stroke and other disorders
  • Imaging of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

           These state-of-the-art examinations are performed on   the 3.0 tesla MRI scanner and are useful indetermining even very subtle alterations in brain integrity associate with chronic head trauma and chronic traumatic encepalopathy. The most useful new sequences are called VEN_BOLD SWI and are 4 -6 times more sensitive at detecing microhemorrhage in brain than any other scanner in the Bay area. 

  • Siezure Imaging
    Specialized MRI sequences performed on the 3.0 Tesla magnet provide exquisite neuroanatomical information for detection of brain areas responsible for siezure production
  • Memory Disorder Imaging
    Unique MRI sequences developed at UDI to help diagnose causes of memory loss or dementias
  • FLAIR Imaging
    Assists in the diagnosis of neurological conditions, including multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and stroke
  • Multi-Voxel Spectroscopy
    Demonstrates metabolites and enzymes in the brain
  • TMJ Imaging
    Specialized imaging to examine jaw and joint abnormalities
  • MR Angiography (MRA) Imaging
    "3D" images of the blood vessels in the head, neck, body and extremities including the Circle of Willis, carotids, renal arteries, aortic arch, iliac vessels, and run-offs
  • MR Arthrogram Imaging
    Intra-articular enhancement to increase visualization of joint spaces in the shoulder, hip, elbow, and wrist
  • Superior Joint Imaging
    For the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, wrist and hips
  • MR Cholangiopancreatography
    Non-invasive technique for imaging the biliary system and pancreatic duct
