What are the BENEFITS Open MRI of Canada Can Offer?

  • The MYK open MRI allows for the most demanding cases to be accommodated. For example, large patients, large athletes, kids, and handicapped patients can comfortably receive imaging due to the open gantry style. Currently, in many of these cases, patients go untreated or seek treatment in the United States.
  • The MYK open MRI reduces confinement and anxiety for all patients, especially those who are claustrophobic. The open MRI offers them a spacious environment during scanning.
  • The MYK open MRI allows pediatric patients to be comforted during scanning. In most cases, the parent or guardian is able to lie beside the child and/or hold their hand, instead of just in sight. As well with the open MRI, pediatric patients may not require sedation, which reduces the cost of imaging and the risks to the child.
  • The MYK open MRI allows for a full range of examinations and ease of siting, as the patient has room to move around.
  • The MYK open MRI provides paperless and filmless reports immediately to physicians via the web-based innovative technology of PACS (Picture Archiving Communications System), as opposed to up to 48 hours wait at other clinics.
  • The MYK open MRI has minimal noise. Traditional machines are very loud, sometimes comparable to a jackhammer. This racket can cause extreme unease and annoyance.
  • The MYK open MRI has superior image quality, allowing the radiologist to report effectively. This reduces the need for exploratory surgery and associated complications.
  • The MYK open MRI is the most accurate method for diagnosing illnesses or injuries of the body. Since it is timely, patients can start treatment and return to regular activities more rapidly.
  • The MYK open MRI does not use radiation, and is not associated with any pain.
  • The MYK open configuration allows for kinematic MRI as well as MR guided intervention.
