Wide-and Short-Bore MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology is extremely useful for diagnosing injuries and illness. But an MRI can be a nerve-racking experience for some patients: to get a scan, a patient lies flat on a bed inside of a tube-like machine.

To ease feelings of anxiety, we offer wide- and short-bore MRI scanners. The tube opening on a wide-bore scanner is larger than the opening on a standard machine, offering a little extra breathing room inside the tube. A short-bore MRI scanner features a shorter tube, leaving part of your body outside of the machine. Each type of scanner is designed to make an MRI a more pleasant experience.
