Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses a large magnet, radio frequencies and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within your body. The caring, expert staff at PinnacleHealth Imaging use the latest MRI technology to deliver high-quality, comprehensive scans that lead to a fast, accurate diagnosis.
With comfort, convenience and image quality in mind, PinnacleHealth Imaging offers several MRI options, including an open MRI that allows you to maintain visual—and sometimes physical—contact with your loved ones and our staff during the procedure. Our open MRI may be suitable for:
- Elderly patients
- Clinically obese patients
- Patients suffering from sports injuries
- Patients suffering from claustrophobia (a fear of enclosed spaces)
At PinnacleHealth Imaging, we understand that an MRI can be stressful. To help keep you as comfortable as possible, our MRI machines are equipped with Pianissimo™ noise-reduction technology—which reduces exam noise by up to 90 percent. As the only provider in central Pennsylvania that offers this technology, PinnacleHealth Imaging helps you to stay calm and still during MRIs, which improves image quality and reduces the need for repeat exams.
