Open MRI Benefits

Beaumont uses the latest open MRI technology available. Our machines produce exceptionally clear images and precise results. These images are accurately interpreted by board-certified Beaumont radiologists who will provide quality care and treatment.

At Beaumont, your health is always top of mind but we also focus on your comfort and safety. These open MRI scanners will help ease the anxiety of you, your loved one or your child. Additionally, our highly skilled technologists are friendly and experts in their field. They will help you understand the procedure and answer questions.

It is important to note that some diagnostic tests may require a more traditional scanner. This will be determined prior to testing.

An open MRI scanner has an opening that is larger than a traditional MRI. This technology provides our patients with optimum comfort while maintaining a very precise image quality.

The open MRI is perfect for those who are claustrophobic or need more space to accommodate their size. Patients will be able to see outside the scanner at all times. Some scanners even allow a parent to accompany their child during a test.
