Vital Imaging Makes Greater Commitment into MRI Research
Date:5/21/2013

Glendale, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Vital Imaging™ has teamed up with top researchers at the University of California, San Diego for a joint study which aims to compare the images of load bearing Gravitic™ MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) with that of a supine Dynawell MRI scanner. Vital Imaging is renowned for its continued pursuit of improved healthcare by combining cutting edge technology with progressive research efforts.

Spinal MRI is an extremely valuable tool for evaluating pathological changes in the spine, vertebral bodies, vertebral discs, ligaments, and joints. With its ability to create high-resolution imagery, supine MRI continues to be the standard for analyzing soft tissue in the spine. However, recent studies on patients with degenerative lumbar spine disorders found supine MRI's may not detect all abnormalities which might be present. In lieu of this uncertainty, Vital Imaging is conducting supine loaded MRI spinal testing using a Dynawell device as well as a Gravitic MRI scanner. The report from this dual analysis will help to determine which method more accurately reveals patient pathology.

Vital Imaging and the University of California, San Diego are currently conducting another study using Gravitic MRI technology. This next study will determine the effect that carrying a backpack has on spinal length and intervertebral disc height in children. It has been hypothesized that even an average backpack load can decrease lumbar and intervertebral disc height, while also decreasing macro and micro vascular blood flow in upper extremities. Vital Imaging is actively participating in the effort to collect data which could establish a link between the use of back packs and back-related injuries in children.
