3T Highfield Wide Bore MRI – This MRI machine is one of the newest and most powerful around. The 3T Highfield Wide Bore MRI machine has a higher field and signal strength than others, allowing it to be a faster scan and higher-quality image. The wide-bore component of the MRI machine allows for more space for your limbs and overall headroom to comfortably be scanned.

Open MRI machine – One of the most state-of-the-art, cutting edge types of MRI’s is the open MRI machine. An open MRI scanner is ideal for people who have claustrophobia, or fear of small, enclosed spaces who are looking to have digital imaging done. Not only is it almost completely open for the patient to pass through, but it’s one of the most comfortable and highly-accurate diagnostic imaging services that are available.
