Why Is a “Closed MRI” Preferred by Physicians?
Higher Magnetic Strength
Closed MRI’s (High Field) have a higher magnetic strength that correlates to higher pixel resolution and therefore a much-improved quality for detecting even the most minor problems.
Shorter MRI Exam Time
The higher strength of the MRI unit allows for a much shorter MRI exam time.
High Field Magnets have a large opening and can accommodate larger-sized patients. The High Field magnetic strength creates a better picture on larger frame bodies than does an open magnet.
