“Hands down the best imaging experience I’ve ever had, and I’ve had tons. They’re so nice, and they were able to get me a same day appointment since I was in so much pain. Jake did my MRI and he was so compassionate and understanding of my pain level. The place is clean, I didn’t have to wait at all, and everyone I spoke to was very professional…” ~ Patricia J.
This Open Bore 3T MRI produces a high-powered magnetic field. Because they are the highest-powered MRI machines, they require special considerations or protocols to fulfill certain diagnostic criteria for the referring physician. 3T MRI scanners produce clear images that can be conducted quicker. 3T MRIs are ideal for imaging small bones, breast tissue, musculoskeletal structures, spine, and vascular flow. Its large 70cm open bore enhances patient comfort to reach a wider range of patients including larger bodies and those who struggle with claustrophobia.
A Highfield MRI is a more open MRI option than traditional machines, but offers a higher tesla than a fully open MRI. This makes it ideal for patients who are claustrophobic or cannot be accommodated by closed-bore MRI machines. A Highfield machine is open on both ends and is flared on the sides to increase the magnetic strength. The images produced are great quality and highly-detailed, allowing your physician to make an accurate diagnosis.
A CT scan, also known as a CAT scan or Computed Tomography, is a special kind of X-ray that takes pictures of a cross-section of a part of your body. CT scan images provide more detailed information than traditional X-rays are able to. CT scans are used to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries and may be used to observe internal organs and tissues of the body to diagnose disease or injury.
An x-ray (radiograph) is a quick, painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Radiography involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation called electromagnetic waves. The various body tissues absorb the radiation differently, creating different shades in an image to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Calcium in the bones absorbs radiation the most, so bones appear bright white while soft tissues absorb less and look gray. Air absorbs the least, so lungs and empty spaces appear black. X-rays are great for looking for broken bones or scarring in the lungs.
Fluoroscopy uses injected contrast dye and an X-Ray machine to take a continuous series of X-rays instead of individual snapshots. It is most commonly used to evaluate parts of your body that are moving in order to create a short video of your body system in motion. It is particularly useful for observing the digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems and their functioning.
