High Field MRI functions exactly like Low Field or Open MRI.
The only difference is that High Field MRI delivers Higher Quality images allowing for better and more accurate diagnoses.
Traditionally High Field has meant being imaged in a long narrow tube.
At Citrus Diagnostic Center, our Siemens Short-Bore, High Field, 1.5 Tesla magnet shortens that tube allowing the patient's head to be located out of the tube or very near it's opening for many exams.
An additional advantage is that the high field magnetic can perform it's job faster which can decrease the time a patient may need to spend inside the magnet.
