Coils for the Open Upright MRI

posted on WED, FEB 3 2016 by Center for Diagnostic Imaging

A coil is essential in generating images of a specific body part during an MRI exam. That’s because during your MRI a radiofrequency is transmitted into your body. The coil acts as an antenna to receive the radio frequency signal coming out of your body and transmit that data to a computer which then generates images. Some patients are surprised by the coil when they arrive for their appointment, especially when they've selected to have and Open MRI. At CDI, we feel you'll have the best exam experience when you know what you’re getting before you arrive. Take a moment to watch this brief video which explains the various coils used with the Open Upright MRI.
