MRI


Open Mri

MRI medical imaging uses no radiation and is non-invasive. An MRI creates detailed pictures of almost all internal body parts including bones, soft tissues and organs.

About MRI at Northeast Radiology

Northeast Radiology has three different kinds of MRI equipment (pictured above). Each has its advantages:

  • High Field MRI

    • The highest resolution images

    • Fast/shortest examination times

  • Open MRI

    • Ideal for claustrophobic patients

    • Can accommodate large patients who may not comfortably fit in the High Field MRI

  • Open Orthopedic MRI

    • High Field strength

    • Ideal for upper and lower extremity joints

      • Knees, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists, and hands

    • You can recline comfortably in a chair, placing only your arm or leg in the scanner

    • Perfect for young children

Your safety is of primary concern to us. You will be asked the same question multiple times by different people as well as asked to complete a safety questionnaire related to your specific MRI study.

A complementary CD of your MRI study is available to you after your examination is completed. It is wise to keep this CD as part of your personal medical history file.

Quality Standards

Northeast Radiology Magnetic Resonance Imaging Accreditation

The American College of Radiology (ACR®) offers several accreditation programs for MRI. This core MRI accreditation evaluates the qualifications of the personnel, the quality control program, MRI safety policies and image quality specific to MRI. Accreditation is not permanent, and an MRI facility must resubmit testing regularly.

All Northeast Radiology MRI programs are ACR® accredited.

Northeast Radiology’s Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging Accreditation

The American College of Radiology (ACR®) offers an additional Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging Accreditation. Facilities performing breast MRI must participate in peer review and constructive feedback on their staff’s qualifications, equipment, quality controls, quality assurance, MRI safety policies, and image quality.

Northeast Radiology offers breast MRI in our Brewster and Mount Kisco, New York, imaging centers.
