BALTIMORE, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Patients and doctors no
longer have to sacrifice image quality when using an Open MRI, now
that Advanced Radiology has introduced Baltimore area’s first 1.2
Tesla High Field Open MRI. The new high-strength, boreless
magnet is a major advancement for patients who cannot undergo MRI
in a traditional closed-bore unit due to claustrophobia or
height/weight limitations. Claustrophobic patients can avoid
having to receive sedatives or anesthesia while getting image
quality comparable to 1.5 Tesla MRIs.
Advanced Radiology’s new magnet has truly revolutionized MRI by
creating a more comfortable and convenient experience for patients,
while providing highly precise images that can accurately diagnose
orthopedic, neurologic, body and other disorders. It
features a large, comfortable patient opening with a special table
that lowers to wheelchair height, while accommodating patients
weighing up to 660 lbs. Patients can even have a friend or family
member with them during the exam, and can stay in contact
throughout the procedure.
The new 1.2T MRI is part of Advanced Radiology’s
state-of-the-art imaging center in Lutherville, MD, which opened in
October, 2009. This beautiful facility, located at 1209 York Road,
offers a wide range of diagnostic imaging services that include CT,
digital mammography, DEXA, ultrasound and X-ray.
Beginning Spring, 2010, Advanced Radiology also was the first in
the Baltimore area to offer outpatient 3T MRI. This magnet provides
amazingly clear images that help doctors improve diagnostic
accuracy. Visit www.AdvancedRadiology.com
