Open MRI

Open Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or Open MRI, is a very patient-friendly procedure that is quieter and more comfortable for patients than a closed MRI. Open MRI gathers information about your body using a magnet, radiowaves, and a computer to create detailed internal images of the body and transmits them for your doctor to see. Claustrophobic, obese and pediatric patients, along with those suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, are often able to comfortably undergo MRI examinations. The Open MRI unit is available at St. Paul Radiology Roseville.
