PATIENT CARE defines what Advantage MRI is all about. Our team members are selectively chosen, with the first criteria being their compassion for others. We specialize in MRI, only using Siemens 1.5T MRI equipment, therein ensuring unsurpassed image quality. Add to that a top-notch group of Board-Certified radiologists and we deliver in every aspect of the MRI experience. From same day scheduling* and 4-6 hour report turnaround time, accurate results are in the hands of your doctor, in most cases, the same day as your exam.
With more than twenty-five years of seeing patients throughout California, we are the best choice when your doctor says you need an MRI.
The benefits begin with our commitment to compassion. Our staff has been carefully chosen to create a caring atmosphere.
The exam usually takes 15-30 minutes, depending on what body part(s) is being scanned. You will be asked to remove eyeglasses, watch, jewelry, credit cards, dentures, hearing aids, wigs (removable hair extensions), and any other metallic objects on your body.
Depending on which body part is being scanned, you may need to put on a gown. The dressing rooms are private and only you have they key for the secure storage area in that dressing room. Prior to the MRI technologist taking you into the scan room, you will be asked if you want certain music, or you can bring in your own CD. The MRI technologist will then situate you on the MRI table. Once positioned, the technologist will then step into the control area, all the while staying in contact with you both visually and through an intercom.
As the exam proceeds, the MRI technologist will keep you apprised of the amount of time for each sequence, and you will hear a muffled thumping sound. Relax and try to lie as still as possible and let your mind enjoy the music. Before you know it, the exam will be over!
We have tried to anticipate every convenience our patients would want. From flexible appointment scheduling, to easy to find, centrally located locations, to the personalized approach we take with every patient, our clinics have been designed for patient comfort.
So many ADVANTAGES! You get them all at Advantage MRI.
