LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwired - July 20, 2016) - Insight Imaging Los Gatos MRI has brought ultra-high-field wide-bore 3T MRI technology into their outpatient setting.
"With double the power of a traditional high-field MRI, this new scanner will allow us to see even more detail in both neurological and musculoskeletal imaging," said Murray Solomon, M.D., Medical Director and Diagnostic Radiologist at Insight Imaging Los Gatos MRI. "This gives our team of specialists another tool for performing advanced imaging procedures, including traumatic brain injuries, dementia studies, seizure studies, joint injuries and more."
Insight Imaging's new Siemens Skyra® provides clear, robust high-field images and a more comfortable patient experience. It allows for shorter scan times and a quieter exam. And, as one of the widest 3T MRIs available, the new system features an opening the size of a hula hoop, providing more room for larger or claustrophobic patients seeking high-field diagnostic imaging. Using the latest coils, it enables us to provide new and improved imaging services on areas such as the brain, abdomen, shoulders and joints.
"This new wide-bore 3T complements our current standard-bore 3T by offering image quality second to none, faster exams and quieter 'whisper' gradients," states Dr. Solomon. "Patients with headaches, hearing loss -- even pediatric patients -- will benefit from a more spacious, faster and quieter exam."
Insight Imaging Los Gatos MRI's 3T MRI is available at 800 Pollard Road, Suite B101, Los Gatos, CA 95032. To schedule an MRI exam, patients should call 408.374.8897. More information is also available on Insight Imaging's website at myCDI.com/Insight/CA.
