What is open MRI?
An open MRI scanner has an opening that is larger than a traditional MRI. This technology provides our patients with optimum comfort while maintaining a very precise image quality.
The open MRI is perfect for those who are claustrophobic or need more space to accommodate their size. Patients will be able to see outside the scanner at all times. Some scanners even allow a parent to accompany their child during a test.
