Getting an MRI is Easy with CORE

We are proud to offer the MAGNETOM Espree, a large-bore 1.5 T MRI magnet for our patients’ convenience. This highly-regarded MRI is a new way to do MRI, with the shortest magnet and the largest diameter of its kind. In addition, it is powered by TIM (Total Imaging Matrix), which allows our doctors to detect and diagnose diseases more quickly to deliver the highest quality care possible.

When you schedule your MRI at CORE Orthopedics, you can rest easy knowing you're not paying extra facility fees like you would at a hospital or at other locations that can double or triple the cost of an MRI.
