Traditional MRIs are built as a narrow tube covered by an enormous, circular magnet. When a patient is put through an MRI scan, they are fully enclosed inside of the tube, known as the bore. There often is not enough space for the patient to move their head and they must lay absolutely still for a long period of time while the magnet spins noisily around them. To say that this experience is uncomfortable is an understatement and is a claustrophobic nightmare.
With our open MRI system, we make the entire experience more comfortable from beginning to end. With the only true weight-bearing machine in South Carolina, The machine moves over the specific part of the body to be imaged and leaves the head free. The patient is able to look around and hear the caregiver’s voice.
It is also equally as important to reduce the amount of sound from the machine. The open MRI device is significantly quieter than the traditional. Patients can expect a softer hum instead of the usual clanging and thumping of the loud magnet circling around in the machine.
