What is an open MRI?

Open MRI is an MRI specially designed for claustrophobic or larger patients with its wide patient opening and open sides.

What does an open MRI offer that a high-field MRI doesn’t?

Open MRI offers a low, extra-wide, padded patient table for added comfort and ample air flow and lighting to keep patients at ease, reducing anxiety. Your clinician will determine whether or not an open MRI is the best MRI for you.
