Our 3T Siemens MAGNETOM Skyra MRI scanner, has twice the strength of the more common 1.5T scanners. This results in clearer pictures which make smaller abnormalities visible and improves accuracy. The ‘Multiparametric’ portion of the scan involves adding two relatively new techniques to the well established standard anatomical sequences.
The scanner, which runs alongside other scanners in the department, proving unrivalled capacity and quality of imaging.
The 3T Siemens scanner, offering our patients the very latest equipment with a walk-in imaging service, is the latest generation of high field strength MRI scanners, which offer twice the field strength of conventional 1.5T systems.
The high-field strength is particularly useful in MRI scans of the brain and spinal column, and of the musculoskeletal system. It will accommodate a large variety of patient sizes, shapes and conditions. Its a roomy 70cm wide bore offers patients new levels of comfort.
Bringing such innovative technology to our already world class imaging department demonstrates our commitment to provide ultimate care to all our customers.
With the new 3T and the 1.5T we can offer patients a walk in service for MRI.
