Pueblo Radiology Medical Group
The traditional “open” MRI unit alleviates the anxiety that patients may feel about the enclosed space of the “closed” MRI due to extreme claustrophobia. For patients who have concerns about feeling claustrophobic even in the open MRI unit, the radiologists at Pueblo Radiology will allow them to take a look at the unit before the exam.
The design of the open MRI unit at Pueblo Radiology features a comfortable open short-bore system, which is shorter and wider than the conventional MRI units. This Santa Barbara medical imaging facility’s radiologists will produce the high quality images using state of the art technology with the comfort of the patient as a priority. Results of Pueblo Radiology’s MRI scan are available to the doctors within 24 hours of the exam.
The “high field unit” MRI at Pueblo Radiology produces the highest quality images of the formations inside of the body using radio frequencies and magnetic fields in a short amount of time. The amount of the time that the patient will require for the exam is 20 to 45 minutes.
