Advanced Radiology Introduces Baltimore's First 1.2T High Field Open MRI
Date:12/14/2010

BALTIMORE, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients and doctors no longer have to sacrifice image quality when using an Open MRI, now that Advanced Radiology has introduced Baltimore area's first 1.2 Tesla High Field Open MRI.  The new high-strength, boreless magnet is a major advancement for patients who cannot undergo MRI in a traditional closed-bore unit due to claustrophobia or height/weight limitations.  Claustrophobic patients can avoid having to receive sedatives or anesthesia while getting image quality comparable to 1.5 Tesla MRIs.  

Advanced Radiology's new magnet has truly revolutionized MRI by creating a more comfortable and convenient experience for patients, while providing highly precise images that can accurately diagnose orthopedic, neurologic, body and other disorders.   It features a large, comfortable patient opening with a special table that lowers to wheelchair height, while accommodating patients weighing up to 660 lbs. Patients can even have a friend or family member with them during the exam, and can stay in contact throughout the procedure.

The new 1.2T MRI is part of Advanced Radiology's state-of-the-art imaging center in Lutherville, MD, which opened in October, 2009. This beautiful facility, located at 1209 York Road, offers a wide range of diagnostic imaging services that include CT, digital mammography, DEXA, ultrasound and X-ray.  

Beginning Spring, 2010, Advanced Radiology also was the first in the Baltimore area to offer outpatient 3T MRI. This magnet provides amazingly clear images that help doctors improve diagnostic accuracy. Visit www.AdvancedRadiology.com for more information.
