What is MRI?
MRI uses a magnetic field instead of radiation to obtain images of the body. Radio waves and energy are generated to and from images of the body's internal structures. Due to the high degree of accuracy and detail, MRI can be a crucial imaging study in the diagnosis of multiple conditions such as:
- Orthopedic/spine disorders
- Neurological disorders
MRI at Broward Health
Our high-performance Magnetom Symphony 1.5 Tesla MR system provides the most advanced functions in MRI technology today. It combines the look and feel of open MRI systems, designed to improve imaging of claustrophobic patients with the performance of an advanced high-field system. Features include new wide-open, patient-friendly design, faster exams, higher resolution, advanced clinical applications and short boar/1.5T high field.
The comforting shape and size of the compact, wide-open enclosure helps patients relax before and during their exams. Additionally, the design maximizes the feeling of openness with its flared opening and spacious bore designed for patient comfort.
A two-way intercom system coupled with a CD stereo system where the patient can bring their own music for listening comfort during the MRI procedure.
The shorter, patient friendly bore features dual-flared apertures for greater openness and patient access. The Magnetom Symphony, in conjunction with our specially trained staff, was designed to keep patients comfortable throughout the exam while providing the highest quality of resolution available.
