Oval MRI: The New Shape of MRI

MRIs vary. You have options.

The Oval MRI scanner at Insight Imaging – Garfield, just 13 miles from Downey, is the latest in advanced imaging technology. At 74 cm, the opening of the scanner (called the bore) is wider than current MRIs being marketed as “wide-bore MRI.”
