MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. An MRI offers a safe and efficient method for medical diagnosis of many conditions. In many cases, MRI can lead to early detection and treatment of disease without surgery or biopsy. It is a noninvasive method of examining the soft tissue of the body including organs, muscles and tendons.
Anxiety, hyperactivity, claustrophobia, and obesity are common things that effect patients' experience with the "tunnel" style MRI systems. Our OPEN MRI is spacious, comfortable, quiet, and open on all sides making it airy, bright, and OPEN. You should not experience that "closed-in" feeling. The openness allows a friend or family member to sit with you, even hold your hand. Our scanning table has no weight limit. Patients are made comfortable with the help of cushioned pads, pillows and specially formed sponges.
Our goal at Garden City Diagnostics is to make your visit as comfortable and convenient as possible. Once your scan is complete it will be reviewed and interpreted by a qualified Radiologist. We will then provide your physician with a quick and accurate interpretation of the results of your scan. They will then discuss the results with you. If you have any questions about your results, please consult with your physician. We hope that your experience with us will be a pleasant one.
