Wide Bore MRI

We understand that medical tests can be intimidating, and that's why we're proud to offer wide bore MRI examinations combining state-of-the-art imaging technology with a more comfortable and open experience. Wide bore MRI ensures you receive high-quality imaging while avoiding the typical confinement of traditional MRI machines. We prioritize your comfort and peace of mind.

Wide Open Spaces

Conventional MRI scanners are a cylinder shape. Wide Bore Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or wide bore MRI, has a wider tunnel-like opening than a standard MRI. It’s a patient-friendly scan that is quieter and more comfortable for patients than a traditional MRI. Wide bore MRI gathers information about your body using a magnet, radio waves, and a computer to create detailed internal images of the body and transmits them for your doctor to see.

Claustrophobic and obese patients as well as those feeling anxious or concerned are often able to comfortably undergo wide bore MRI examinations.

Advantages of Wide Bore MRI

The design of our wide bore MRI machine lowers anxiety and reduces the feeling of being enclosed. This is especially beneficial for patients who may be uncomfortable in tight spaces. It features a large and comfortable bed and opening, reduced noise and allows patients to relax during the exam. The wider bore design can help reduce anxiety during the test.

Not only is our wide bore MRI more comfortable, but it's also efficient and accurate. In addition to enhanced comfort, this technology features high-field technology to provide outstanding image quality.
