WHY USE AN OPEN MRI SCANNER

If you wish to have your MRI investigations without being uncomfortable due to the lack of room, an open MRI scanner would be an excellent option for you. It is suitable for everyone but particularly suitable for the following groups.

Claustrophobia : The Open scanner suits patients who suffer from anxiety and claustrophobia as the Open scanner allows patients to lie flat or indeed stand while the scan is being performed as opposed to having to stay still in an enclosed tunnel.
