MRI experience

In the past, a patient was required to spend a long period of time in a long , dark, claustrophobic "tunnel" and was subjected to extremely loud noises. These negatives no longer exist in our facility. We now use the MAGNETOM Espree, a comfortable, quiet, fast and top-of-the-line MRI scanner.

Designed with patient's comfort in mind

The new open design of the unit reduces anxiety and claustrophobia. Feet go in first and your head remains outside. Patients will constantly see the examination room and can communicate whenever they wish throughout the short scan time.

Form meets function

The extra large-Open Bore design is flared, giving children and elderly patients a wide open view that allows them to feel safe and relaxed. They can also have constant eye contact with those present. This new design can accommodate patients up to 440 pounds. The accessibility, flexibility and comfort makes this unit a completely new MRI experience.

Innovative CT

Our Siemens SOMATOM® Sensation CT (computed tomography) scanner allows the routine use of high performance Multi-slice CT. It provides extended of anatomical areas while producing images with higher details, which is key in clinical applications such as early tumor detection. In addition, it also features clinical applications targeted at the diagnosis of specific regions of interest. The following provides a brief overview of those clinical applications:

  • Highly detailed imaging with very short breath hold requirement using Multi-slice CT. Misregistration due to motion is virtually eliminated. This is especially important in trauma and pediatric examinations. Vasculature evaluation of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and extremities using CT Angiography. This provides an accurate picture of blood flow through the vessels in a fast, minimally invasive way.
  • Evaluation of osteopathic and traumatic alterations of bone surface using 3-dimensional imaging. The clear view of the bone structure in 3D allows a fast and accurate assessment of the alterations that have taken place.

Scheduling

What makes our imaging center different is our determination to offer our patients the latest technologies that are not only dependable, but comfortable, and provide physicians with more accurate, higher quality images.
