MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an advanced diagnostic imaging procedure that creates detailed images of internal bodily structures without the use of ionized radiation (x-rays). MRI is able to produce these detailed images through the use of a powerful magnet, radio waves and a computer. MRI assists physicians in detecting and diagnosing diseases or other abnormalities in very early stages.
At Independent Imaging, we offer the new GE Signa EXCITE 11.0 MRI Scanner which operates at a higher field strength allowing clearer more detailed scans which improves information used by physicians for diagnosis. Not only does this technology improve clinical productivity and image quality, it has unprecedented scanning speed.
Our BREAST MRI offers VIBRANT (Volume Imaging for Breast Assessment), provides high-definition bilateral breast imaging in one exam with the GE Signa EXCITE MRI. Utilize the bilateral breast imaging technique that is the most sensitive to the patient's diagnostic needs.
Claustrophobic, obese and pediatric patients, along with those suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, are able to undergo an MRI on our open unit located at our Okechobee location.
