NEW 3T MRI
3T open-bore magnet – revolutionary comfort and accuracy.
Shields Health Care Group offers this technology at two locations in our network, Baystate MRI and Imaging in Springfield and The Wilken’s Center in Hyannis. Both of these magnets are the only open-bore 3T magnets in their region.
With a wide opening and unprecedented magnet strength, the Siemens 3 Tesla, or 3T, is the strongest MRI used clinically today. Twice as strong as the average MRI, the 3T enables radiologists to see scans at a level of detail not previously available for exceptional accuracy and detection.
The Siemens 3T offers:
Unparalleled comfort: The large, open bore design accommodates patients of any size (up to 550 lbs) and helps reduce anxiety and claustrophobia
Powerful: Exclusive Tim™ (Total imaging matrix) technology helps to make exams more efficient.
Exceptional accuracy: The powerful magnet provides extraordinary images for a more confident diagnosis for physicians.
Shields Health Care Group is committed to being at the forefront of technology and is proud to be one of few in the state to offer the 3T open-bore magnet. Our expert radiology team works closely with physicians to determine patients who are eligible for 3T which is primarily used for neurological, musculoskeletal, body and vascular scans.
