Most people will agree that the word “fun” doesn’t pop into their head when finding out they need to have an MRI scan. The majority of patients will be concerned with both their comfort during the scan and correctly diagnosing the injury. Some patients will think that the open style of a machine will leave them more at ease. However, the true source of a better experience is the core of the machine, the magnet. At Shields, we provide both with our 1.5T and 3T wide, open bore MRI machines.
