MR Guidance for Needle Place
Magnetic resonance (MR) guidance for needle placement is a medical technique that uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology to guide the placement of needles for various medical procedures. This technique allows for greater accuracy and precision when performing procedures such as biopsies, injections, or other minimally invasive procedures.
MR-guided needle placement can be particularly useful for procedures that require precision and accuracy, such as in the case of biopsies of small or hard-to-reach areas. This technique can also reduce the need for multiple needle insertions, which can help minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of complications.
While MR-guided needle placement is generally considered safe, there are some risks associated with the procedure, such as bleeding or infection at the site of the needle insertion. Patients should discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with their healthcare provider before undergoing MR-guided needle placement.
