How MRI Works

Our State of the Art Scanners

The design of this state-of-the-art high field MRI system provides added comfort to patients because of its larger internal core, reduced acoustic noise, and sound system. This system's hardware and software are able to generate superior diagnostic images in much less time, as compared to older open magnets. The improved gradient coil design will allow for marked improvements in image quality.
