Memorial utilizes the 1.5 T, Excite Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which is considered among the most advanced technologies of its kind. The unit delivers highly detailed pictures which allow physicians to evaluate a wide range of including stroke, cancer, musculoskeletal and heart disease.
This system reduces the length of MRI exams and provides superior, high-definition images with amazing clarity and detail even in the most difficult cases. These cross-sectional images offer superior soft tissue images for specialists to interpret.
Our MRI unit is housed in a large room with a beautiful sky light to help alleviate that "close-quarter" feeling. For more claustrophobic patients, we also offer an "Open Bore" MRI.
An MRI is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases, MRI gives different information about structures in the body than can be seen with an X-ray, Ultrasound or CT Scan. MRI also may show problems that cannot be seen with other imaging methods.
