Our O-Scan MRI Machine uses the latest MRI technology that provides top-level image quality and therefore allows for decreased exam-times. It is comfortable and completely non-claustrophobic!

The easy-positioning bed allows the patient to lay comfortably as only the extremity under investigation is place into the machine. Once the images are completed our Board Certified Radiologist Dr. Linda Dew for review.
