For virtually all exams, including lumbar spine scans, the patient’s feet go in first and the head remains outside of the magnet bore without sacrificing image quality. For some exams, special coils are placed over a body part. The coils are ultra lightweight and barely noticeable.
Getting into the MRI is made easier because the table adjusts down to 18 inches off the floor. The technology of this scanner offers significantly reduced scanning time. A head-to-toe exam can be performed in a single pass.
All MRIs are Evaluated by a Board-Certified Radiologist
A Board-certified radiologist will evaluate your MRI scan and complete a diagnostic report for your physician. Through a digital computer network, your doctor will review images and reports with you, right in the exam room. The ONS MRI is fully-accredited by The American College of Radiology.
