Our Philips Medical Systems 1.5 Tesla MRI Scanner.


  • The MRI program at Greene Medical Imaging has received accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
  • Greene Medical Imaging utilizes the Philips Medical Systems 1.5 Tesla short-bore MRI Scanner. This state-of-the-art scanner combines the strongest magnetic field strength and shortest scanning tube available to minimize study times and maximize quality while providing you with a comfortable and roomy feeling.
  • MRI is the diagnostic procedure of choice for many diseases of the brain, spine, bones, and joints.
  • We also can perform Breast MRI, MR Arthrogram, MRCP, MRA run-off and diffusion studies. For information regarding Breast MRI, please view the 2004 ACR Practice Guidelines & Technical Standards.
  • Most tests take between 30 and 45 minutes. Our ARRT certified staff is extremely knowledgable and professional and will answer any questions you may have regarding your exam.
  • Because the MRI uses a high strength magnet, certain materials and devices are not allowed in or near the scanner. Please let our staff know prior to your appointment if you have any of the following: Cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, cerebral aneurysm clips, cardiac valve replacement, metal filings or fragments in your eye, metallic or electronic ear prosthesis, or a nerve stimulator. We will contact you prior to your appointment and ask you several screening questions so please remember to tell us if you have any of these items.
  • At the time of your appointment, we will ask you to remove any jewelry, watches, cell phones, pagers, articles of clothing with metal parts such as zippers, etc. We have lockers available to secure these items for you.
  • Please let the staff know prior to your test if you are or might be pregnant or if you are nursing.
