Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) exams are non-invasive diagnostic imaging exams of soft tissue, bone and muscles.
Phelps’ new state-of-the-art MRI Center features a MAGNETOM Aera 1.5T MRI system from Siemens Healthcare, which offers faster, quieter and more comfortable exams.
The MRI’s spacious design helps reduce anxiety and the closed-in feeling of traditional MRIs. It is also shorter so that the patient’s head can remain outside of the MRI for most exams. Mood lighting in a color chosen by the patient contributes to a calm experience. The quietness of the MRI allows patients to enjoy listening to their favorite music.
The Phelps MRI scanner has a full range of routine and advanced clinical applications for quality diagnostic imaging in the areas of neurology, orthopedics, body imaging, angiography, cardiology, prostate and breast imaging, oncology, biopsies and more. The powerful magnet produces highly detailed images for precise diagnosis.
For your safety, when making an appointment for an MRI, please mention if you have any of the following: breast tissue expander, cochlear implants, IVC filter, neurostimulator, pacemaker, penile implant, silver-backed dermal patches or surgical vascular clips.
