What’s an MRI?
Why Schedule your MRI at Susan B. Allen?
It’s fast. Our Ingenia 1.5T can scan patients of varying size, age, and medical condition in less time than previous MR systems on the market. Routine exams of the brain, spine, knee, ankle, and liver are quick and easy. And even more complex scans may only last 15 to 40 minutes.
It’s comfortable. Our revolutionary new Philips Ingenia 1.5T has a 70cm wide-bore opening to make you feel less confined. It’s one of the largest MRI bore openings available, anywhere. In fact, most scans can be done with your head completely out of the system. Our MRI system is not only minimally invasive, it’s minimally intimidating.
It’s accurate. The Philips Ingenia 1.5T delivers the revealing images your doctor needs to help diagnose your medical condition correctly. Our staff can use the Ingenia 1.5T to quickly generate a wide range of MR images—the whole body or any part of it.
It produces the precise, detailed images they need to confidently diagnose many different anatomical and structural problems in the body—including brain and nervous system disorders, cardiovascular disease, and organ disease. And the wide 70cm opening means we can accommodate more patients of varying size, age, and physical condition.
