If you have ever felt nervous, anxious or on edge when in tight spaces such as an elevator, closet or even a small car, chances are you show signs of clinical claustrophobia.

Claustrophobia is defined as “a fear of being in closed or small spaces” and “an unhappy or uncomfortable feeling caused by being in a situation that limits or restricts you.” When feeling this way, it is very difficult for a person to relax and keep still, two key components of having a successful imaging exam done — particularly an MRI.

With Capitol Imaging Services open MRI, we deliver an unobstructed angle in this MRI to put even difficult patients at ease. What happens when a person is more at ease?

It results in decreased scan time and quality images for the doctor. A truly superior patient experience.

Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice serving the southeastern United States. We not only perform the scan, such as an MRI or CT, but also provide the radiology expertise to review the test images and issue important findings to physicians and other healthcare providers.

Capitol Imaging Services also often lowers out of pocket costs for people who receive a recommendation for an imaging scan. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles, that’s a major financial advantage. For those without health insurance coverage, our private cash prices often save people money when compared with other imaging providers.

Capitol Imaging Services is doctor trusted and patient preferred.
