Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses a magnetic field and a sophisticated computer system to give reliable and detailed images of the body. In orthopedics, we use MRI for high-quality images of soft-tissue areas, such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Our open MRI machine produces very clear images of the extremities, including the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, foot, and ankle.
Additionally, MRI can help provide information for a fast and accurate diagnosis and possibly reduce the need for exploratory surgery or other diagnostic procedures. Our open MRI machine was designed with your comfort in mind by providing spacious, stress-free accommodations for claustrophobic or larger patients.
