MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and it is a type of medical imaging technique that uses magnetic fields and computer algorithms to create detailed images of the bones and soft tissues of your body. These images can help doctors identify potential structural problems or diseases, provide an early diagnosis, or simply give them a better understanding of what’s going on inside you. 

At Smart Scan, we're proud to utilize the newest technology in MRI with the GE 1.5 Tesla wide bore scanner. But what does that mean for you, the patient?

"Tesla" is a unit of measure of magnetic field strength. The GE 1.5 Tesla wide bore scanner produces a strong magnetic field, allowing us to get high-resolution images and get you off the table as fast as possible. This enhancement in image quality allows our radiologists and other doctors to detect even subtle changes in your body more quickly and accurately. That means you'll get the answers you need faster, giving you peace of mind and helping us provide the best possible care for you. 

Additionally, we understand that getting an MRI scan can be stressful or intimidating. With our wide bore MRI, you'll feel comfortable during the exam as the scanner's open design allows greater space for your body while providing detailed images of your head, chest, abdomen, extremities, or spine. Plus, with our enhanced imaging capabilities, we can also reduce scan time significantly, helping you to get in and out more quickly. 

If you're in need of an MRI scan, trust the experts at Smart Scan Medical Imaging. We are dedicated to providing superior care and service for every patient that visits our facilities. Contact us today to learn more about our services or schedule an appointment online!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my MRI scan take?

MRI scans typically take between 15 to 30 minutes. With the GE 1.5 Tesla wide bore scanner, we can reduce the time you spend in the machine, making for a more comfortable experience. 

How does it feel to get an MRI scan? How should I prepare for my scan?

The MRI scanner creates a strong magnetic field. You won’t feel anything, but you may hear a rhythmic knocking. We provide headphones with music of your choice to help block out any noise and make your time on the table enjoyable.

Additionally, you should wear loose and comfortable clothing for your scan. Metal objects, including jewelry, glasses and other accessories, must be removed prior to your scan as they can interfere with the magnetic field. 

Talk to your doctor or the staff at Smart Scan for more information on how to prepare for an MRI scan.
