MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a method of looking inside the body utilizing magnetic fields and computer software to create 3-D images of internal structures of the body. This exam can save patients from otherwise more invasive or possibly surgical procedures. MRI is painless and our wide open High Field OPEN MRI offers claustrophobic and larger patients a far more comfortable scan than closed tunnel type machines. Even so-called “wide bore” style scanners are still closed systems and create anxiety and fear in many patients. High Field MRI results in clearer pictures for more accurate readings by the radiologist. The Philips HFO or High Field OPEN MRI is capable of generating images comparable to closed 1.5 Tesla scanners. So, there is no concern of lower resolution imaging associated with older, less powerful open MRI units.
CT (Computed Tomography or CAT Scans) is another type of diagnostic test that uses X-Rays and computers to generate 3-D internal pictures of the body. CT is particularly useful for quickly evaluating skeletal integrity, abnormal organ structures and muscles while CT angiograms are excellent for visualizing blood flow. Our GE Lightspeed CT is highly regarded for quality in the industry.
We look forward to the privilege of serving you in a comfortable, easily accessible and friendly outpatient setting with free parking. We believe you will feel at ease from arrival to departure!
