At ImageCare, we pride ourselves on our patient service. We offer a knowledgeable staff, safe and proven procedures, and the latest in medical technology. At ImageCare, we provide the most advanced diagnostic MRI in Morristown, NJ. We offer several different MRI’s, including 1.2T open MRI, 3T MRI, and 1.5 extremity MRI. As the most cost-effective medical imaging center, ImageCare welcomes patients to get the treatment they need.
A standard MRI uses a large magnet with an opening in the shape of a tube where you must lay still for an extended period of time as scans are taken of your body. At ImageCare, we feature Siemens brand extra-roomy Short Bore MRI machines which are for the specific area of your body that needs to be scanned. While you must remain still, the rest of your body can be outside of the machine, giving you space to feel comfortable.
Our facility also offers open 3T MRI (at select locations) specifically designed to alleviate stress and the feeling of tightness and claustrophobia. This new technology brings clarity for our radiologists in your prognosis. We also provide sedation MRI for those who would prefer taking a medication before receiving their MRI to avoid anxieties and breeze through their screening.
ImageCare also offers upright MRI (or stand up MRI) which allows you to be in any position, whether standing or sitting, leaning, or bending, and laying down. Other MRI machines are strictly designed for patients to lay down in the machine. The upright MRI allows all parts of the body to be scanned with the normal weight of your body on the spine and other joints, leading to more accurate results.
What Does an MRI Show?
Before your appointment, you may be wondering, “what can MRI scans detect?” By producing high-resolution images of your internal organs, tissues, and skeletal system, an open MRI scan can detect many different internal conditions, some of which include:
- Brain injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Eye problems
How Does an MRI Work?
Magnetic resonance imaging or MRI procedure is a method of obtaining detailed pictures, or images, of internal body structures without the use of radiation or radioactive substances of any kind. This is accomplished by placing the patient in a magnetic field while harmless radio waves are turned on and off. This causes the body to emit its own weak radio signals which vary according to tissue characteristics. These signals are picked up by a sensitive antenna and fed to a computer which produces detailed images of the body for interpretation by our staff of board-certified radiologists, which is then reported to your physician.
Our staff is proud to provide a comfortable environment to help our patients relax as they receive medical imaging services. Our doctors are trained and knowledgeable in open MRI scans, and these procedures are highly reliable for diagnosing many conditions.
