The unparalleled clarity of images produced by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan makes it a key tool for evaluating the head, neck, spine and joints. MRI uses computer technology, along with radio frequency waves and a powerful magnet, to produce these images. It is also useful in examining bones, muscles, tumors, the heart, blood vessels and abdominal organs.
Our on-site, state-of-the-art MRI equipment combines patient comfort and an open feel with high performance. It also quickly delivers unsurpassed diagnostic detail, from head to toe.
At our Ross facility, a large-bore MRI provides more comfortable testing conditions for larger patients and for those who fear enclosed spaces; 70 percent of all MRIs may be done with the patient's head outside of the magnet. When a head-first exam is done, there is an open view allowing constant eye contact with those present. There is also more head, leg and elbow room with this MRI.
