Deep vein thrombosis scan. Patient undergoing a magnetic resonance direct thrombus imaging (MRDTI) scan. An image of the patient's legs is seen at lower left. MRDTI is a technique for detecting blood clots in deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can develop during long journeys in cramped conditions. It is non-invasive, quick and accurate, and may be more sensitive than ultrasound scans or venography, meaning that symptomless clots can be detected. MRDTI also reveals clots in pregnant women without the use of X-rays. A clot may move to the lungs or brain, causing pulmonary embolism or a stroke. MRDTI was developed at the University of Nottingham, UK.
