Open-bore MRI is an MRI machine that features a wider bore opening than a conventional machine. Every wide, open-bore MRI in our network is 1.5T or 3T strength which means the strength of the MRI will deliver extremely accurate results. A normal bore size is 60 cm; our open-bore magnets offer an additional 10 cm of room and hold up to 500 lbs, making it ideal for those patients who are heavy, large-boned or suffer from claustrophobia.
MR Arthrogram is a two-part exam that consists of an X-ray on a specialized C-arm machine and an MRI of the affected area; the procedure involves an injection of contrast agent. MR Arthrogram is typically used to identify the presence of abnormal growths or cysts and to diagnose complete rotator cuff tears, adhesive capsulitis, tear of the rotator interval, disorders of the biceps tendon and impingement syndrome.
Prostate MRI can provide valuable information for the detection and characterization of breast disease and is most commonly used to evaluate the extent of prostate cancer in order to determine if the cancer is confined to the prostate, or if it has spread outside of the prostate gland.
