Hackensack Radiology Center offers Open MRI Scans
Patients who are larger, or suffer with even mild claustrophobia, may find it difficult to tolerate long scan times inside the machine. Hackensack Radiology Center uses OPEN MRI Technology to accommodate these patients and help overcome their discomfort. The OPEN MRI is a machine that is open on the sides rather than a tube closed at one end, so it does not fully surround the patient. Newer OPEN MRI Technology, like the ones used at Hackensack Radiology Center, provides high quality images.
