Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) exams have become one of the fastest growing types of medical diagnostic tests in the United States, due, in large part, to its ability to provide non-invasive diagnostic images of soft tissues, bone, fat and muscles and to help in the detection and diagnosis of a variety of health conditions, including orthopedic injuries, breast cancer, neurological disorders and cardiac diseases. And now, Cyrus Diagnostic Imaging announces the installation of a MAGNETOM Skyra 3T Open Bore MRI from Siemens Healthcare. In the past MRI exams have not always been comfortable for or well tolerated by certain patient groups, including the elderly, obese (up to 550 pounds) individuals or those who experience claustrophobia,
excessive pain or limited mobility. This is due to the relatively small doughnut-like opening where the patient lies, called the bore, and the long tube-like structure of the machine, which can feel confining. However, the MAGNETOM Skyra's large 70cm open bore - along with its short length (173 cm) can help reduce patients' anxiety and help put them at ease.
The accommodating features of the MAGNETOM Skyra, combined with 3 Tesla (T) magnet strength - the strongest clinically available- means that Cyrus Diagnostic Imaging patients can now enjoy a larger array of imaging options with high quality images.
Another patient-friendly feature includes mood lighting on the system, which can help create a calming environment for patients in the examination room.
The system is equipped with two exclusive Siemens technologies: Tim™ 4G and Dot (Day optimizing throughput). The combination of Tim and Dot improves the entire MRI workflow and delivers patient-centered care. The results are faster, more comfortable exams for patients.
To schedule an MRI exam, patients should call 407-321-3012.
