Claustrophobic or Simply Concerned?

Choose an Open-bore MRI for a more comfortable experience

The High-field, Open-bore MRI at Insight Imaging – Fairfax offers you more space inside the scanner. This is a huge benefit if you are worried about a tight or claustrophobic imaging exam. The wider bore (the space you lay within the scanner) is about the size of a standard hula hoop, which gives you a full foot of breathing room between the tip of your nose and the scanner. To schedule a High-field, Open-bore MRI, call us.

Comfortable MRI Design

The extra-large scanner opening is flared to give you a wide-open view. No matter your age or size—even if you have mobility problems—there is comfort in the design of the scanner. The design even allows you to hold your child’s hand throughout the exam.


A Comfortable Position

For the majority of exams, including lumbar spine scans, your feet go in first and your head remains outside the scanner. If you are 5-feet 2-inches or taller, more than 60% of exams can be performed with your head out of the scanner.


Clear Images for Accurate Diagnoses

We can’t diagnose what we can’t see. As a High-field scanner, our Open-bore MRI has a powerful magnet that guarantees clear and detailed images in shorter exams when compared to a traditional, low-field MRI—so you can be confident of an accurate diagnosis.
