What is an Open MRI?
Open MRI is used to accommodate claustrophobic, obese and pediatric patients. Conventional MRI scanners are a cylinder shape, while an open MRI does not completely surround your body. It is usually open on two or three sides. An Open MRI provides a more relaxed, less confining environment and lower noise levels making it less stressful for you.
Is there radiation involved?
No. An Open MRI is a painless radiology technique that has the advantages of avoiding radiation exposure.
