While traditional magnetic resonance imaging procedures often leave patients feelings confined and uncomfortable in the machine’s tight openings, an Open MRI is a completely open system, comfortably hosting all patients.
The Panoramic Open Magnetic Resonance Imager is designed to ease patient anxiety. Patients don’t have to put their heads in the bore as they do with a traditional tunnel magnetic resonance imager.
However this convenience has led to the misconception that they generate scans of inferior quality, leading to misdiagnosis. This is not true. In fact, today’s Open MRI systems offer quality that is just as good, if not better, than traditional imagers, so you can be assured that the resulting images will retain as much detail as possible.
