Offering Open MRI Options in Wisconsin

Patients can find a traditional MRI to be difficult for a variety of reasons, including claustrophobia, anxiety, large body build or obesity. At Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI), we have the widest selection of MRIs in Wisconsin. Working with you and your provider, we will help select the MRI that is right for you. 

We strive to make the imaging experience as comfortable as possible for you while capturing high-quality images your doctor needs to guide your care. 

At CDI, all MRI images are read by radiologists (medical doctors with advanced training in reading imaging exams) from the Medical College of Wisconsin. Our technologists (who help position you in the scanner and capture images) are highly trained and will answer all your questions and help you feel comfortable during your exam.
