MRI & CT Center
MRI equipment at OrthoArkansas is constructed with patient comfort, safety, and dignity in mind. Our equipment accommodates up to 440 pounds, and we have a full body magnet and a smaller magnet for images of extremities. The state-of-the-art Siemens Magnetom Symphony 1.5 Tesla short-bore magnet is used solely for images of the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal system.
Our trained MRI techs typically complete the noninvasive process within 30-45 minutes and can immediately process and make your images available. The images are forwarded forthwith to the radiologist, who often provides interpretation within just a few hours.
ALERT! Certain materials are not suitable for MRI.
Notify your doctor immediately if you have any of the following, which will prevent you from having an MRI scan:
· Brain aneurysm clips
· Cochlear implants
