1.5MRI

MRI is a noninvasive test that uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create images of the body without using radiation. This type of exam allows excellent characterization of the soft tissue and has applications in evaluating the brain, spinal cord, blood vessels, bones, joints, pelvis and organs of the body. Our open-bore scanner is designed to minimize feelings of claustrophobia.

Types of studies performed:

  • Arthography
  • Breast
  • MRA
