MRI Technology has improved tremendously in the recent years. Today the new GOLD STANDARD for MRI is the 3T or 3-Tesla MRI scanner. 3T MRI is the absolute strongest, sharpest and BEST technology available for MRI imaging of any anatomy available today. There is nothing that can be done on Open Architecture scanners and 1.5T scanners that can’t be done BETTER on 3T. In fact there are now many specialty sequences and imaging that can be performed at 3T that can’t even be accomplished on the older Open and 1.5 technology.

Our Neurointerventional Specialist

Dr. David A. Siker completed his radiology residency and neurointerventional fellowship at Georgetown University Hospital and the National Institute of Health. He completed medical school at the University of Florida, and received his bachelors degree in electrical engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University. He specializes in neurointerventional therapies and 3T MRI. Dr. Siker was the first physician to bring neurointerventional therapies from the university setting to the community hospitals of Oregon and Southwest Washington in the late 1990’s. He is the director of neurointerventional services for Legacy Healthcare Systems, based at Emanuel Hospital. Dr. Siker performs many of the latest advances in neuro-intervention, including aneurysm flow diversion with Pipeline, aneurysm stent/coiling, AVM/Tumor embolization, intracranial and carotid stenting. As director of Neurointerventional services, he runs the acute neurointervention team for emergent treatment of problems such as ruptured aneurysms and acute ischemic strokes. 3T MRI Specialist Besides neurointerventional therapy, Dr. Siker’s other main focus is applying state of the art 3T MRI techniques such as CSF Flow analysis for Chiari 1 and Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, DTI (tractography) for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI), and MR neurography, and dynamic imaging for patients with issues of their spine or associated nerve roots. These techniques are used to capture nerve tract locations in the brain, subtle neurological abnormalities throughout the nervous...

3T in Womens Imaging

Why is 3 Tesla MRI so important in Women’s Imaging? In women’s imaging, detail is of utmost importance.  When evaluating anatomy such as millimeter-sized breast lesions, or detecting uterine anomalies, utilizing the highest resolution possible makes a world of difference. Magnetic Field Strength is one of the key dynamics that contributes to production of higher quality images, thinner slice thickness and potentially earlier detection of pathology. Magnetic field strength is measured in “Tesla” units. A “Tesla” (1T) is equal...
