Capitol Imaging Services was recently contacted by a person who received a recommendation for an MRI. While that is not at all uncommon, it is unique that this individual will be coming to our East Bank facility from nearly 300 miles away.

The reason? Our high field open MRI.

The person is larger in size and stature, and therefore traditional conventional MRI systems can’t accommodate them. However, the Capitol Imaging Services high field open MRI has successfully imaged larger people and in fact, imaged a person who weighed 700 pounds.

We are delighted to be able to provide successful accommodations for people who are limited in technology choices in healthcare. The Hitachi Oasis is very popular due to its open architecture and patient-friendly design. While others offer open MRI, the Capitol Imaging Services high field open system is the strongest in strength. The more strength, the better the opportunity for quality image captures that the radiologist and referring medical provider need in order to arrive at a diagnosis.

Capitol Imaging Services also often lowers out of pocket costs for people by performing our exams at lower fees. For those with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles, that’s a major financial advantage. And, this advantage is enjoyed without sacrificing quality of care, technology or radiology expertise.
