With the mission of promoting cutting-edge technology associated with research and customer service, InsCer has state-of-the-art equipment for the following services:
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging service uses a scanner with strong magnetic fields, equipped with the fastest and most powerful gradients on the market, which produces images with high anatomic detail due to its high resolution, allowing earlier and more accurate diagnosis. It is especially applied in neuroimaging and imaging of the musculoskeletal system, enabling advanced morphological and functional brain study.
Computed Tomography (CT) is a high-resolution anatomic scanning technique that produces cross-sectional images of scanned structures. It can be used to obtain images of various body parts. Such images help identifying masses and tumors, guiding surgeons in biopsies and blood vessel examination. This technique is widely used for fusion imaging with metabolic data, which can provide more thorough and accurate examination.
Scintigraphy and SPECT
Scintigraphy and SPECT is a diagnostic imaging method in Nuclear Medicine. By combining a radioisotope (radioactive material) with a pharmaceutical carrying the radioactive material to the organ under study, this method provides functional and metabolic information about such structures. The gamma radiation emitted by the patient after administration of this compound is captured by a device called gamma-camera. The images obtained can be flat, dynamic, and even tomographic (SPECT). This technique can be used in research on renal and cardiac functions, and neurological and pulmonary studies, among others.
PET/CT is also a diagnostic imaging technique in Nuclear Medicine, which by means of a hybrid scanner, allows to view metabolic changes in the body (PET – positron emission tomography) along with anatomic information (CT – computed tomography). In a PET scan, a radiopharmaceutical is administered to the patient and then detected by the equipment to form an image. Due to its sensitivity, this technique is widely used in neurology, oncology, and other fields.
