Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) helps doctors diagnose injuries by taking detailed images of the muscles, tendons, and internal tissues. If you’ve ever had a traditional MRI you may have felt a bit uncomfortable staying still and calm in a small, enclosed space. Advancements in MRI technology have allowed for more open designs that give the patients a better experience without sacrificing image quality.

4 Benefits of an Open MRI

  • Reduces Patient Stress and Anxiety: This is especially helpful for patients who may have claustrophobia or other anxiety disorders.
  • Allows Patients to have a support person with them in the room: When children need an MRI it can be helpful for a parent to be present and visible during the procedure. However, all types of patients appreciate the ability to have a family member or friend with them during their appointments. 
  • More space for Patients of all sizes: Traditional machines were confining and uncomfortable for larger patients, the Open MRI eliminates that concern and gives comfort to all patients.
  • It’s Quieter: The Open MRI makes less noise than a traditional machine, which can be beneficial to patients that are sensitive to sounds. 

Studies show that stress and anxiety about procedures cause patients to delay making necessary appointments. When procedures are more comfortable patients are less likely to delay their care.
