MRI

Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg provides MRI exams with ACR accreditation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a sophisticated technology that provides cross-sectional images of the anatomy. Physicians can use these detailed images to help identify and diagnose a variety of conditions. MRI does not use x-rays (ionizing radiation).

1.5T MRI systems and true open MRI are offered at multiple locations. Available magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams include:

• Musculoskeletal
     o Shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger
     o Hip, knee, ankle, foot
     o Arthrography
• Neuroradiology
     o Brain, including skull base and cranial nerve evaluation
     o Orbits, face, neck
     o Spine
• Abdomen – including MRCP
• Pelvis
• Cardiac – evaluation of cardiac masses, viability, ARVD
• Fetal MRI
• Breast MRI with CAD
• Specialized exams can be tailored for any soft tissue mass or pathology

In addition to the 1.5 MRI systems offered at Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg and Medical Imaging of North Stafford, Medical Imaging at Lee’s Hill offers patients the true open MRI. This new technology offers many advantages:

• The 1.0 tesla magnet allows for faster, more accurate scans than conventional open MRI systems.
• As a true open MRI, it reduces the feelings of anxiety some patients may feel in the enclosed spaces of a traditional MRI.
• The quality of the images provided makes our true open MRI ideal for orthopaedic, neurological, abdominal, pelvic and angiography (MRA) exams.
• It can comfortably accommodate patients up to 550 pounds.
• Family members and caregivers have easier access to children who may require scanning – providing an added level of comfort.
• It is convenient for senior patients and others with limited mobility.  

Our true open MRI delivers unprecedented accuracy and comfort while enhancing our ability to decrease testing times.
