When it comes to providing medical imaging and working with patients we have made commitments to providing an exceptionally comprehensive experience while getting exceptional images.
MRI AKA Magnetic resonance imaging is useful for evaluating the abdomen through using a magnetic field and computer to produce images of the structures within a patient’s body. These images allow the doctor to examine the body and detect diseases or tumors. We ensure our work accommodates the variety of patients that we see. Our facility has a high-field, open MRI that combines quality and comfort to provide a great experience for patients and provides diagnostic images at an amazing price.
An MRI of the Abdomen can evaluate certain organ functions and check for obstructions or abnormal tissue growth. It can also show damage to any organs that a patient may have suffered from such as a car accident, a fall, or injury. It also shows lymph nodes, blood flow, and can even look at intestines with a special test called a MR Enterography. The best part is that MRI are non-invasive and we make them affordable.
With abnormal growth MRI can distinguish tumors from normal tissues and can provide valuable information for the staging by looking at the size, extent, and spread of these tumors. MRI is used to avoid the dangers of other tests that can expose patients to radiation, or used for patients who can’t receive iodinated contrast dye.
The open design of the Oasis MRI allows the technician to comfortably situate the patient in the magnet’s iso-center. The ability to iso-center is a vital component of producing a high-quality image in the MRI world, and it’s simple to do in our open MRI.Patients can enjoy a more comfortable MRI experience because to the open architecture of our MRI machine. The exam table descends to accommodate wheelchair-bound patients, and its width makes setting simple.Patients can now see everything around them, reducing anxiety and allowing even huge and claustrophobic patients to complete the exam without difficulty.

An IV is only needed if the MRI is ordered with an IV contrast which is needed if the radiologist recommends it or if there is a clinical indication for it. Otherwise the only other time is if a patient is getting an IV sedation because of anxiety with an MRI Scan.
