MAGNET: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and radio waves (no radiation) to create an image of many parts of the body, especially the brain, spine, and joints.
With the installment of the Siemens Wide Bore MAGNETOM Aera 1.5T MRI American Health Imaging now offers more enhanced patient comfort and power in MRI exams at the Marietta, GA radiology suite.
The addition of this new MRI scanner has expanded access to diagnostic imaging that supports a complete range of clinical applications, including neurology, orthopedics, body imaging, angiography, cardiology, breast imaging, and oncology.
Like all MRI’s the MAGNETOM Aera uses magnets that are measured in Tesla (T) to acquire images. At 1.5T, the MAGETOM Aera offers superb image quality that may be used for a wide range of medical needs – from orthopedic and sports-related injuries or to diagnosing many diseases and disorders.
The MAGNETOM Aera boasts a 70 cm wide bore – the tube-like structure of an MRI machine, where the patient lies during the imaging process – and can provide access for obese patients of up to 550 pounds. Additionally, the system’s ultra-short bore (145 cm) can help to alleviate concerns of claustrophobic since many exams can be performed with the patient’s head outside of the bore.
The system is equipped with two exclusive technologies that further enhance the patient-centered care. The results of this technology are faster, more comfortable exams and excellent image quality for radiologists and doctors.
