Raleigh, NC MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Services
At The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic, we’re committed to providing you with convenient, cost-effective MRI scans. Our patients enjoy access to MRI services from the convenience of our orthopaedic clinic. Located inside our Raleigh office, you’ll find a state-of-the-art open MRI extremity scanner, Wake County’s only open MRI unit.
Our Open MRI
Magnetic resonance imaging is a non-invasive procedure in which you remain comfortably reclined while the injured area is placed in a magnetic field for scanning. Our MRI is designed specifically for viewing extremity regions and joints such as the shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, hand, hip, thigh, knee, calf, ankle and foot. The MRI scan will show the soft tissue inside and around your injured joint.
At The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic in Raleigh, our open MRI allows the best imaging possible without many of the problems associated with closed MRI units. The open design of the machine eliminates any anxiety or claustrophobia, giving you freedom that’s not possible in enclosed units. The entire MRI process takes about 30-45 minutes.
MRI reports are read by a radiologist and our orthopaedic surgeons, who use the MRI scan to determine the full extent of your injury. Results of the scan are usually available within a day. Once your results are ready, you’ll be able to view your MRI images and discuss your next steps of treatment with your physician.
Preparing for an Open MRI
There is no special preparation for a MRI and no restrictions on your diet. Before your scan, you should remove all metal jewelry, etc. and wear comfortable clothing if possible.
