High-field MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI or MR) combines a powerful magnet with an advanced computer system and radio waves to produce accurate, detailed pictures of organs and tissues to diagnose a variety of medical conditions and guide patient care. 

The strength of an MRI magnet is called “field strength” and is measured in Tesla or “T.” The term “High-field MRI” is used when the scanners field strength is 1T or above. Benefits of high-field scanners include the ability to see smaller details of your body and shorter scan times.   

Images from high-field MRI scanners are read by our specialized radiologists – doctors with advanced training in reading imaging studies of the body part you are having examined – so you can be confident of an accurate diagnosis.
