Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses a magnetic field and a sophisticated computer system to give reliable and detailed images of the body. MRI does not utilize radiation to acquire images.
In orthopedics, we use MRI for high quality images of soft tissue areas such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles. In our Willow Street location, we feature a state-of-the-art high definition magnetic resonance system from GE Healthcare. The Signa® HD 1.5T system provides highly detailed pictures of anatomy and pathology to help evaluate a wide range of conditions, including stroke, cancer, and musculoskeletal. The scanner also features GE's leading-edge EXCITE® data management platform. This breakthrough enables OAL MRI to offer more sophisticated exams.
Our OAL MRI at the Lancaster location features a powerful open magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system. The Signa® OpenSpeed™ EXCITE® from GE Healthcare uses a super-conductive magnet to produce excellent diagnostic images of anatomy. The OpenSpeed EXCITE system is unique in that it operates at 0.7T magnetic field with EXCITE technology while offering the comfort of an open MRI exam. The GE Signa OpenSpeed EXCITE solves one of the biggest challenges in medical imaging today – combining the immense power of MRI technology in a comfortable system design that accommodates the needs of all patients, including large patients and those who suffer from claustrophobia.
OAL MRI at the Lebanon office features the GE Healthcare 450W 1.5T MRI system. The 450W features a wide, short bore which allows for improved patient comfort and shortened exam times. The new system has a comprehensive software package to support many MRI studies in addition to orthopedic scans. The 450W features special software to acquire high quality images even after surgery of a total joint replacement. Providing same-day diagnostic screenings, coupled with the many other on-site services offered, increases our ability to provide you and your family with the best care while still being considerate of your time. If 9 am-5 pm simply won’t fit into your schedule, we offer evening MRI appointments as well.
