Many physicians have been reluctant to send their patients for open MRI scans, since the quality of the images has historically been far worse than on closed systems. Now with the addition of our new, 1.2T Hitachi-high field open MRI, this has changed. For the first time, closed MRI image quality is available in an open scanner. Now physicians can ensure patient comfort while receiving the high resolution images necessary for accurate diagnosis. Our open 1.2T Hitachi High Field scanner is the only one in the Washington area.
Reston Radiology Consultants share their experiences with the Hitachi Oasis High-Field Open MRI.
Our new open scanner is patient friendly, especially for children who are often intimidated by the confining environment of the closed-bore MR systems, or for adults on both ends of the size spectrum - athletes with extremely broad shoulders, or patients with extremely wide waists and hips. Our new 1.2T Hitachi scanner is built for patient comfort, it boasts the industry's widest table at 82cm and the highest patient weight limit at 660lbs.
Our 1.2T open scanner excels in bariatric imaging, the evaluation of brain disorders, traumatic injuries, eye abnormalities, spine diseases, tumor detection, and liver and other abdominal diseases.
