Jefferson Health – Blue Bell Offers Most Advanced MRI
The latest-generation in open MRI systems is now available at Jefferson Health – Blue Bell. Not only does this MRI system offer physicians
high-field image quality for advanced applications, it also features a completely open design that makes getting an MRI scan a more positive experience.
Many patients, due to their size or feelings of claustrophobia, prefer open MRI systems, and this system features the widest patient opening of any high-field MRI system. In fact, it can accommodate patients who weigh up to 550 pounds. And, physicians will appreciate the high resolution images that enable them to make better diagnoses.
“The new MRI system we have installed has a true, open-sandwich design, creating ample space around the patient,” said Paul V. O'Moore, MD, diagnostic services physician manager, Jefferson Health – Blue Bell. “Even with its unique open design, it provides highly detailed images that are far superior to other open systems. Almost all other open systems are ‘low-field’ which is only 20 to 30 percent the strength of the new system’s magnetic field.”
