A Higher Standard of Diagnosis

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses radio frequency waves and a strong magnetic field rather than X-rays to provide remarkably clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues. There is no radiation involved in MRI technology and there are no side effects. MRI has proven very valuable for the diagnosis of a broad range of pathologic conditions, including cancer, brain tumors, heart and vascular disease, stroke, and joint and musculoskeletal disorders. Florida Medical Clinic uses only High field MRI providing superior quality and images for our patients. Some important facts to consider:

  • High field MRI is typically twice as fast as open MRI
  • High field MRI has higher resolution resulting in superior quality images with less blurring.
  • High field MRI produces thinner slices, so smaller abnormalities won’t be missed.
  • High field MRI is preferred by most medical specialists. Many specialists will not treat or operate based on open MRI findings.
  • Insurance plans are beginning to refuse patients requiring a second MRI after the open MRI proves unsuccessful.
  • High field MRI costs the same as open MRI but offers faster service and better quality images.
