New High-Field Open MRI Now Available in the South Sound

Better Quality and Experience Help Reduce Stress and Anxiety for Patients Who Are Challenged With Traditional MRIs

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - April 15, 2016) - Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) has installed a new high-field open MRI in its Puyallup outpatient center, providing patients who suffer from claustrophobia or exceed the size limit of traditional MRI equipment a new option for getting the care they need.

CDI's new high-field open MRI combines the comfort of a spacious and completely open design with clear, high-quality images and faster scan times. This helps provide a less stressful experience for patients who are claustrophobic or whose height and weight prevent them from getting a traditional MRI. 

"The high-field open MRI is a great option for a variety of patients," states Steve Pollei, M.D., CDI Medical Director and Neuroradiologist. "It allows them to complete their MRI more comfortably and without sedation. And with the strength of the high-field magnet, my team is able to capture very clear images for an accurate diagnosis."

The CDI network of outpatient centers throughout Puget Sound provides the widest variety of MRI equipment in Washington, including Open Upright and wide-bore options. An ultra-high-field, wide-bore 3T MRI will be coming soon to the CDI Bellevue location.

At its Puyallup center, CDI also offers low-dose CT, diagnostic and therapeutic injections, spine motion imaging and more. The center is located at 2930 South Meridian Ave., Suite 160, Puyallup, WA 98373. Patients with a doctor's referral can call CDI at 855-643-7226 to schedule an imaging exam.
