Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

5-minute MRI exam

MRI is a lengthy and expensive exam, but this is mainly because it has no ionizing radiation and is uniquely safe and uniquely versatile, leading to imaging sessions that last for 1/2 to 1 and 1/2 hours, with multiple scans, views and contrasts. MRI could provide better quality screening scans, compared to x-ray, ct or echo, in 5 minutes, without ecg-gating and lengthy preparation of the patient. However, the optimal applications, and protocol have not been developed. For example, MRI could replace echo providing function and viability without ecg-lead placement in 5 minutes
