Would you be interested in having your MRI in a 3T ultra-high field system (a system most often demanded by medical subspecialists) in which the MRI’s shorter design (five feet, eight inches long) means that most exams can be done with your head OUTSIDE the system?

If your answer is a resounding “YES!”, then our Capitol Imaging Services affiliate, Diagnostic Imaging Services (DIS), has the solution for you.

The DIS Magnetom Skyra 3T MRI System

What benefits are further touted with the soon-to-be implemented Skyra 3T MRI at Diagnostic Imaging Services? According to the creator of the Skyra, Siemens AG, these benefits include:

  • Comfort: The Open Bore (the hollow part inside of the MRI) design helps people feel more relaxed. The Skyra is designed to accommodate patients weighing up to 550 lbs.
  • Speed: Exclusive technology allows for faster, more efficient exams and less wait time.
  • Confidence: A strong 3T magnet delivers excellent images to help physicians make a more confident diagnoses.
  • Personalization: Unique technology provides a more personalized exam that can be tailored to a person’s specific imaging needs.
