Magnetic Resonance Imaging, commonly referred to as MRI, is an important diagnostic tool enabling physicians to see inside the body, obtaining anatomical information without radiation. MRI is frequently used to evaluate the brain, spine, and other areas of the body for illness or injuries.
There are primarily two types of MRI machines available. One style is a high-field strength “tunnel-style” system, which many people refer to as a “closed” unit. This kind of scanner has weight limitation because of tube-like design. Frequently, people who are claustrophobic tend to find it difficult to
tolerate. The other style of scanner is commonly referred to as an “open” unit because of a spacious, open design that can
accommodate patients with special needs.
The unit at OpenSided MRI is situated in a comfortable, stress-free environment. In
addition to the “open” design, there is a large picture window and relaxing music to enhance the patient’s imaging experience.
