MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, uses magnets, radio waves and computers to create extremely detailed pictures or “images” of your internal organs and structures. An MRI allows the radiologists to see inside your body at any angle, while providing a wealth of diagnostic information.
The MRI, unlike X-ray, uses a strong magnet in conjunction with radio-wave pulses of energy to generate 2-D or 3-D internal images.
An MRI is used primarily for studying the brain, spine as well as the body and musculoskeletal system. Blood vessels can also be imaged by a technique called Magnetic Resonance Angiography.
Your MRI technologist will ask if you have any metal objects on your body. You may be asked to keep certain items with the staff for safekeeping. Your MR technologist will position you onto a padded table, asking you to lie very still. The exam is painless and non-invasive. You may notice a slight knocking sound as each image is taken. The length of your exam depends on the particular test your doctor has ordered for you. The tests usually take between 30 to 60 minutes.
We are pleased to offer you the world’s leading high-field Open MRI system – the GE Open Speed MRI. Unlike earlier generation Open MRI’s, the Open Speed combines speed and an open environment with a superb image quality.
Our ultra short-bore, high field strength, GE MRI combines the power, speed and image quality of a large magnet with a more open feeling. This MRI houses a shorter patient bore for a more spacious feeling. The two Short-Bore MRI scanners compliment our existing Open MRI suite.
