Highfield MRI’s utilize powerful magnets and radio waves to generate images from the hydrogen protons in your body. Unlike radiographs (X-Rays) or CT scans, MRI’s are safe with no concern of radiation exposure. Our Highfield MRI is a new short bore GE 1.5T magnet with a large cylinder-shaped tube surrounded by a circular magnet.
You will lie on a movable examination table that slides into the center of the magnet. This unit uses a powerful magnet and has fast scan times. Your physician will determine the best magnet for your needs.
