MRI

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. 

Our OAL MRI at the Lancaster location features a powerful MAGNETOM Aera 1.5 T MRI System from Siemens Healthcare. The MAGNETOM Aera offers doctors an array of diagnostic possibilities and provides patients with a more comfortable experience. Like all MRI’s the MAGNETOM Aera uses magnets that are measured in Tesla (T) to acquire images. At 1.5T, the MAGETOM Aera offers superb image quality that may be used for a wide range of medical needs and can help physicians make quicker, more accurate diagnoses.  The MAGNETOM Aera boasts a 70 cm open bore – the tube-like structure of an MRI machine, where the patient lies during the imaging process – and can provide access for obese patients of up to 550 pounds. Additionally, the system’s ultra-short bore (145 cm) can help to alleviate concerns of claustrophobic since many exams can be performed with the patient’s head outside of the bore.

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.
