Breast MRI studies are interpreted by National Diagnostic Imaging US board certified radiologists with expertise in breast imaging, including mammographic and US studies, because examinations are often complementary.
NDI Cardiac MRI Interpretations And Reading Services
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (cardiac MRI), also known as cardiovascular MRI, is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology used for non-invasive assessment of the function and structure of the cardiovascular system.
Conditions in which it is performed include congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies and valvular heart disease, diseases of the aorta such as dissection, aneurysm and coarctation, coronary heart disease and it can be used to look at pulmonary veins.
Cardiac MRI identifies different myocardial disorders, provides prognostic information, and directs therapy. In comparison with other imaging modalities, cardiac MRI has the advantage of allowing both functional assessment and tissues characterization in a single examination without the use of ionizing radiation.
NDI cardiovascular radiologists interpret cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging scans and pictures in order to detect heart problems, monitor cardiac disease and to examine and evaluate coronary blood vessels, veins, valves and the heart’s anatomy.
Radiologists at NDI read cardiac MRIs to assess the structure and function of the cardiovascular system in patients with congenital heart disease.
MRI reading services are used to determine if heart artery blockages are the cause of a patient’s chest pain (angina).
NDI cardiovascular radiologists that read cardiac MRIs can accurately detect blockages in coronary arteries.

Hospitals, physician groups and private individuals pay NDI an MRI reading fee to help diagnose diseases of the pericardium (outer lining of the heart muscle) such as constrictive pericarditis.
The doctors at NDI interpret MRIs to evaluate pericardial diseases, particularly inflammation and constriction, because MRIs provide functional and morphologic data that are key to deciding upon the best therapeutic strategy.
New, advanced MRI techniques are being used to to determine susceptibility of multiple sclerosis (MS) progression by measuring brain iron levels.
Radiologists at NDI are experts at reading MRIs to detect and/or diagnose heart valve disorders, such as regurgitation.
NDI Brain And Head MRI Scan Interpretations And Reading Services
The radiologists at NDI read brain and brain stem MRI scans to detect brain tumors, cysts, swelling, infections, developmental and structural abnormalities, aneurysms, damage caused by strokes, inflammatory conditions, injury to optic and auditory nerves and bleeding in the brain.
NDI doctors use brain MRI scans to look for conditions such as bleeding, swelling, problems with the way the brain developed, tumors, infections, inflammation, damage from an injury or a stroke, or problems with the blood vessels. Brain magnetic resonance imaging scans help NDI neuroradiologists look for causes of headaches or seizures.
Physicians at NDI read MRI scans to evaluate patients that complain of weakness, seizures, dizziness, blurred vision, ongoing headaches and persistent diseases of the nervous system such as MS (multiple sclerosis).
New, advanced MRI techniques (quantitative susceptibility mapping) are being used to to determine susceptibility of multiple sclerosis (MS) progression by measuring brain iron levels.
In some instances, MRI is the best way to view tumors and diagnose problems with the brain stem and pituitary gland. MRIs provide clean pictures of components of the brain that can not be viewed as accurately with ultrasound, CAT scans or X-rays. Except for neurosurgery, an MRI provides the best look beneath the skull.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) measures the small changes in blood flow that occur with brain activity.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging or functional MRI measures brain activity by detecting changes associated with blood flow. This technique relies on the fact that cerebral blood flow and neuronal activation are coupled. When an area of the brain is in use, blood flow to that region also increases.
Dr. Brian Gay provides an easy to understand explanation of an MRI brain scan and how to read it.
NDI Spinal MRI Interpretations And Reading Services
An MRI examination of the spine displays the anatomy of the vertebrae that compose the spine, ligaments that bind the vertebrae together, along with the disks, spinal cord and the openings between the vertebrae where nerves pass.
Patient symptoms that prompt physicians to recommend spinal MRIs include back pain coinciding with fever, signs of brain or spinal cancer, lower back injuries, chronic back pain, MS, bladder problems and weakness or numbness in legs and bladder problems. An MRI is a very sensitive imaging test of the spine commonly used in typical clinical practice.
Radiologists at NDI read and interpret spine, thoracic, cervical and lumbar (lower spine and back) MRIs to identify degenerative disc disease, herniated discs and spinal stenosis. A lumbar MRI specifically examines the lumbar section of the spine. This is the area where back problems typically originate.
Radiologists at NDI read MRIs to detect ruptured/herniated/bulging discs or to determine if a disc is being pressed against a nerve such as the sciatic nerve. Dr. Berns and his staff read MRIs to find tumors affecting the nerves or bones of the spine. Types of cancer that are commonly detected by teleradiologists at NDI in the spine spread there from the prostate, lungs or breasts.
Radiologists at NDI frequently detect compression fractures of the spine while reading MRIs. Docs at NDI look for joint inflammation, bony overgrowth, spinal cord tumors, abscesses, arthritis and bone loss when reading MRIs. Radiologists at NDI look for areas of the spine that have poor blood supply, an infection, nerve damage or congenital problems.

About MRI Examinations
MRI stands for magnetic resonance imagery. This type of scan uses radio waves and magnets to create images. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive test doctors use to diagnose medical conditions.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique that uses a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues in your body.
Most MRI machines are large, tube-shaped magnets. When you lie inside an MRI machine, the magnetic field temporarily realigns water molecules in your body. Radio waves cause these aligned atoms to produce faint signals, which are used to create cross-sectional MRI images — like slices in a loaf of bread.
The MRI machine can also produce 3D images that can be viewed from different angles.
Patient MRI FAQs
How To Interpret The Results Of Your MRI (For Patients)
- Learn how to read an MRI, here.
- The basics of MRI interpretations are listed here.
- Fully interpreting the results an MRI requires the aid of a qualified physician or MRI radiologist.
- A systematic approach to interpreting an MRI is explained here.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique that uses a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues in your body. Most MRI machines are large, tube-shaped magnets.
MRI can be used to detect brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, developmental anomalies, multiple sclerosis, stroke, dementia, infection, and the causes of headache.
The MRI scan is used to investigate or diagnose conditions that affect soft tissue, such as:
- Tumors, including cancer.
- Soft tissue injuries such as damaged ligaments.
- Joint injury or disease.
- Spinal injury or disease.
- Injury or disease of internal organs including the brain, heart and digestive organs.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet and radio waves to look at organs and structures inside your body. Health care professionals use MRI scans to diagnose a variety of conditions, from torn ligaments to tumors. MRIs are very useful for examining the brain and spinal cord.
After your MRI scan, a radiologist will analyze the images. The radiologist will send a signed report to your primary healthcare provider, who will share the results with you. The report is usually ready for your healthcare provider within one or two days.
Most modern MRI centers can give you a copy of your MRI on a disc or flash drive after your appointment. While only your doctor can make a diagnosis based on the image, viewing and analyzing your MRI at home is easy!
The results from an MRI scan are typically interpreted within 24 hours, and the scans themselves are usually given immediately to the patient on a disc after the MRI is complete.
In the simplest terms, an abnormal brain MRI means that the scan does not show a healthy brain. The scanned image may show structural damages that may indicate injury but also lesions, inflammation, swelling, and bleeding.
A neurological examination can diagnose nerve damage, but an MRI scan can pinpoint it. It’s crucial to get tested if symptoms worsen to avoid any permanent nerve damage.
Most radiology images are in DICOM format, which has specifications for medical imaging. DICOM viewer applications allow patients to view their images on CD at home. Several DICOM viewer applications are available online, or the patient’s radiologist may be able to suggest one to use.
Sometimes MRI reports describe lesions as hyperintense, hypointense, or isointense. Hyperintense lesions are bright or white. In general, MS lesions are hyperintense or bright on T2 or FLAIR sequences. Hypointense lesions are dark or black.
Dense tumor calcifications are black (signal voids) on MRI, but calcified foci are usually scattered within the soft tissue mass of a tumor, and not liable to be confused with a clear, normal sinus. As shown in Figure 3, this would not be a problem with CT, as calcifications on CT are dense (white).
MRI Interpretation CPT Codes
Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes offer doctors and health care professionals a uniform language for coding medical services and procedures to streamline reporting, increase accuracy and efficiency.
MRI procedure codes are 70549, 70553, 70559, 71552, 72197, 73220, 73223, 73720, 73723, and 74183.
CPT 70552 can be reported for magnet resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain and pituitary, including the brain stem.
