Open MRI

We've provided quality open MRI studies to Volusia County since 1998. Open MRI differs from the traditional tunnel-type MRI in its shape and magnet strength. Our MRI is open on the sides for ultimate patient comfort and access. When patients are comfortable, it helps them relax and hold still, improving exam clarity and results.

Clinical Advantages:

Complete array of RF coils imaging technique protocols for superb resolution and tissue contrast in:

  • Brain and orbit applications
  • Spine applications
  • Musculoskeletal applications
  • Abdomen/pelvis applications

Magnetic resonance angiography for those patients needing evaluation of the intracranial circulation, carotid arteries, renal arteries, etc.

Allows studies on larger patients where MRI may not have been an option previously.

Patient Advantages

A concept magnet design, which is completely open on both sides as well as the front and back. The unique Open-Air design provides greater patient comfort during scanning and helps to minimize the claustrophobic effect.

Soft-Sound™ gradients, which aid in minimizing patient anxiety.

Soft-Touch™ coils for patient comfort.
