Crystal River MRI is pleased to offer the latest in 1.5 Tesla High-Field OPEN MRI Technology in Citrus County.
This system truly changes the definition of Open MRI. Traditional Open MRI systems have a tesla strength between .2 and 1.0. Open MRI units that fall within this range produce a low-resolution image.
An image from a Traditional Open MRI is more like a polaroid picture while a High-Field Open MRI is more like a digital image. The difference can be drastic and could compromise a confident clinical diagnosis.
Our system accommodates patients of all sizes. The inner diameter gives more than one foot of headroom for head and neck exams. The scanners short design enables most exams to be done feet first with the patients head outside of the machine. The 550 lb. weight limit and the high power delivers high quality images for a confident diagnosis.
In addition, the fast exam times reduce anxiety for claustrophobic patients. Exams times average between 15-30 minutes.
This system offers a wide array of advanced applications that escalates image quality and acquisition speed to a whole new level.
This is the new definition of COMFORT, SPEED and DIAGNOSTIC CONFIDENCE in MRI TECHNOLOGY
