Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)
Our Philips Medical Systems 1.5 Tesla MRI Scanner.
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
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.
