OPEN MRI

Open MRI is a safe, easy, radiation-free procedure which uses a magnetic field to reveal detailed imaged of the anatomy. While the image quality is not as sharp as a high-field image, our open MRI provides detailed images that can easily and conclusively be interpreted by our staff on board certified radiologists while offering a more comfortable and stress free experience for the patient.

A normal session will typically last between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the type of information required by the physician. As usual, the patient needs to remain motionless during the exam and needs to breathe normally.

 

There are certain conditions that may prevent a patient from having an MRI:

Cardiac Pacemaker
Certain cerebral aneurysm clips
Infusion pumps for insulin or pain
    control
Cochlear implants ( inner ear)
Metallic fragments that my be in     sensitive areas
Pregnancy in the first trimester
Neuro-stimulators
Recent vascular stent (with 6
    weeks of placement)
