NJ’s #1 Imaging Center has taken imaging to the next level! Introducing our Siemens 1.5 wide short bore Open MRI. This is the most non-claustrophobic MRI machine on the market. With its super-sized 77cm open bore (almost 3 feet in diameter), it gives the patient over 1 foot of free space between their head and the magnet. This makes our open MRI the largest opening in northern NJ. This fantastic machine also has the shortest magnet (under 4 feet) which means that more than 70% of the patient’s body is outside of the machine during the test.
The latest software and technologically advanced hardware give the highest quality images that doctors from all disciplines can diagnose correctly. Neurologists, orthopedics, internal meds, podiatrists, urologists, and on and on will love these images and the shortest scan times mean their patients will love it too.
What is the biggest difference between an open MRI and our 1.5 wide short bore open MRI?
An open MRI magnet strength is generally .3 Tesla – 1.2 Tesla. Our magnet is the strongest at 1.5 Tesla and will produce the clearest images.
What are the main benefits of choosing Progressive’s 1.5 wide short bore open MRI?
Generally, patients experience anxiety when it comes to any type of medical test or procedure. The addition of being confined into a small space for 20-30 minutes typically increases this anxiety. Our machine removes this anxiety-inducing aspect with much shorter scan times.
