Open MRI machines use the same, advanced diagnostic imaging procedure as traditional MRI machines. Both create detailed images of internal bodily structures without the use of X-rays, using instead a powerful magnet, radio waves and a computer. In some cases, these ‘open’ machines, due to their asymmetrical design might not provide as good a quality image as those not so open, but people often feel more comfortable in them.
It machines have two flat magnets on the top and bottom areas, with a large space to accommodate the patient. The open space in between often alleviates discomfort or claustrophobia, as the patient is not fully enclosed. This design produces high quality images and provides optimal comfort.
It can be the perfect solution to balance imaging needs and patient comfort.
