Open Magnetic Resonance Imaging

A Full-Service Open MRI Facility in Hoffman Estates

MRI at The Center for Sports Orthopaedics

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most versatile medical imaging technologies available. By utilizing an MRI machine, our doctors can get highly refined images of the body's interior structures without the need for exploratory surgery. By using strong magnets and pulses of radio waves to manipulate the existing natural magnetic properties in the body, this MRI technique makes higher definition images of bones and soft tissues than those of other scanning techniques such as traditional x-rays. The entire body structure is visible to the procedure, which poses few known health risks.

The Center for Sports Orthopaedics utilizes an Open MRI machine at the Hoffman Estates location. The main advantage to using an Open MRI versus a traditional MRI machine is that the patient is not fully enclosed within the magnetic resonance imaging unit, therefore claustrophobic reactions do not occur. The airy, quieter and brighter Open MRI machines benefit everyone, especially children, elderly and claustrophobic patients.

Please call 847-884-7771 for more information about MRI procedures or an appointment.
