Diagnostic Imaging Services

MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI): Open MRI, Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a method used by our physician and Registered MRI Technologists to look inside the human body to obtain diagnostic information. It can help provide a quick and more accurate diagnosis for your physician reducing the need for exploratory surgery and other diagnostic procedures that may have associated risk. It provides comfort for the patient while delivering the consistently high-quality images needed for comprehensive diagnosis. Our Hitachi ARIS II MRI accommodates large patients, decreases anxiety in the claustrophobic patient and produces high quality images and fast scan times. It is designed with an extra-wide patient table and produces less noise than traditional closed machines. Our goal is a complete and comfortable scan with a minimum of anxiety.
