Summary of "Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Pelvic Fractures - Part 1: Which Criteria Lead Us to Supplementary MRI Diagnostics?"

Isolated pelvic fractures are relatively rare with an incidence of 3 - 6% of all fractures, but their incidence in polytraumatized individuals increases to 25%. The S3 guideline Polytrauma gives a clear recommendation for diagnostics by means of pelvic radiography (X-ray) and computed tomography (CT). A recommendation for the diagnosis by means of magnetic resonance tomography (MRI) especially in patients with low energetic/missing trauma does not currently exist. It is unclear on the basis of which criteria the MRI can be indicated in pelvic fractures. The aim of our study was therefore to retrospectively record indications for the indication of MRI in pelvic fractures - with adequate as well as inadequate trauma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
