At Middletown Medical Imaging, we strive to make every patient experience positive and open MRIcomfortable. Our open MRI machines offer a safe and noninvasive procedure that allows our doctors to evaluate images of the body to determine an accurate diagnosis. Many patients prefer open MRI’s for many reasons.

Here are 4 benefits of an open MRI:

  • Compared to closed MRI machines, open MRI machines allow for more space for the patient. This helps to eliminate the issue of claustrophobia.
  • Open machines help accommodate to all patients. It should come as no surprise that everyone comes in different shapes and sizes. Our open machines allow most patients to fit regardless of their weight or height.
  • Open machines allow patients to feel more comfortable. Like the name suggests, the open design of the machine allows patients to see or feel their loved ones in the room in order to help ease anxiety.
  • As technology has advanced, open machines have become more prevalent in hospitals and have become the preferred machine for many procedures and patients. Our office utilizes the Hitachi Airis Elite, which is one of the most advanced machines on the market in order to produce quicker and better results.
