Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

PinnacleHealth has a wide range of high field, non-claustrophobic, quiet Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRIs on both the East and West shores

What is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)?

MRI is a diagnostic procedure that uses a large magnet, radio-frequencies and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body. 

I have to get an MRI but I am claustrophobic, and the noise frightens me.  What should I do?

Our MRI creates a more comfortable, less intimidating environment through its spacious scanning environment and noise reduction technology. 
 
Benefits of PinnacleHealth Imaging MRI includes: 
  • The open bore’s large diameter (71 cm) enables us to scan patients with greater ease and provides patients with a greater feeling of openness to reduce claustrophobia.
  • Toshiba’s exclusive Pianissimo™ noise-reduction technology reduces exam noise by up to 90 percent. PinnacleHealth is the only provider in the area to offer this quiet gradient.
  • Since patients experience lower noise levels, they stay more relaxed, improving image quality and reducing repeat exams.
  • Contrast-free MRA exams can be performed.
