HealthQuest, a leading multi-specialty healthcare center located in Brooklyn, New York offers comprehensive therapies for a wide range of musculosketal and other issues. To ensure accurate diagnosis, the center offers onsite MRI scanning. Patients benefit from a painless, stress-free and productive scanning experience with the open MRI facility here.
Magnetic resonance imaging allows physicians to obtain high quality images of the internal structure of the body from all angles. Open MRI can help in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders, degenerative disc disease, tumors, lumbar disc herniation, spondylolisthesis, lumbar spinal stenosis, sports-related injuries, traumatic injuries and cancerous growths. HealthQuest’s high performance scanning solutions include brain MRI, spine MRI, knee MRI, and MRI for the shoulder, ankle, hip and elbow.
As a state-of-the-art multi specialty health care center, HealthQuest is equipped with the advanced AIRIS II modality. This machine uses a magnetic field and computerized system which help generate high quality images of internal body parts from all angles. The computer translates the signals into three dimensional images which help the physician understand any disorder, abnormal fluid or medical conditions that would not be otherwise detected. Soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments and even blood vessels are outlined vividly in the results.
MRI scanning at HealthQuest is extremely useful in the early detection and treatment of diseases and can help avoid the need for invasive procedures such as surgery and biopsies. Also, MRI does not expose the patient to radiation effects as with x-rays and CT scans. Other benefits:
- No pain, discomfort or side effects - Ideal for obese and claustrophobic patients - Low and muffled sounding scan reduces anxiety
Open MRI is ideal for children and patients under stress as they can have a parent or companion present during the scan. Open MRI scanning is accredited by American College of Radiology (ACR). About HealthQuest
