New Imaging Center and 3T MRI Provides Improved Diagnostic Results
MD Imaging is pleased to announce that it is now accepting patients at its new location, the Dutchess Medical Arts building located at 1323 Route 9 in Wappingers Falls, NY. As part of MD Imaging’s ongoing commitment to providing state-of-the-art quality patient care, this new facility will offer 3T MRI, CT SCAN, DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY, XRAY, ULTRASOUND, and BONE DENSITY. The Siemens 3 Tesla MRI, also known as 3T MRI, is twice as strong as the average MRI currently in use in Hudson Valley. Doubling the magnet strength from a 1.5T to a 3.0T MRI can increase the resolution by four times. This is similar to viewing the old standard definition television compared with watching today’s high definition television. Uniquely powerful and precise, 3T MRI enables MD Imaging’s board certified radiologists to scan faster and more accurately than ever before helping to improve treatment outcomes.
The benefits of 3T MRI for Patients
•A more accurate diagnosis leading to better outcomes
•Shorter examination times; a patient with claustrophobia can receive a brain MRI in as little as five minutes with the 3T MRI, reducing the time you spend in an MRI machine, reducing your stress levels
•More detailed images with greater resolution, enables the identification of smaller lesions and anatomical structures
•Detects problems which cannot be seen with less powerful scanners
•Allows more sophisticated imaging procedures
•Has a lower risk of distorted images so lessens the need for repeated scans
•Reduces the need for invasive procedures
The recognizably superior studies provided by 3T systems have had immediate appeal to physicians engaged in neurology and neurosurgery practice, and many physicians readily direct cases to higher field systems. Now that 3T capabilities extend to the entire body, specialists in orthopedics, vascular surgery, and oncology have also been favorably impressed and increasingly demand the higher image quality of 3T.
