Open MRI

Making patients less anxious is a priority at CMI.

For patients who are claustrophobic or who are unable to tolerate a conventional (closed) MRI, we offer Open MRI at one convenient location located in the Utica Business Park. Patients will find that both our Open MRI units are airy and comfortable. Patients can listen to music and are able to view the large open rooms of both our scanners during most Open MRI scans. The scanners have tables wide enough for someone else to accompany the patient throughout the test, as long as the proper screening is done beforehand.

Specialty MRI

In addition to routine exams, the St. Luke's Campus has special coils for Breast Imaging and TMJ. In addition, both St. Luke's and St. Elizabeth's have special coils to perform MRA "runoff" scans of the arteries in the legs. The St. Elizabeth's Campus has added software capabilites that allow for cardiac imaging. Several of our scanners have the capabilities to perform MRI Arthrograms of the extremities which help to better delineate joint space structures.

Breast MRI is primarily used for determining extent of disease, monitoring response to therapy and screening high-risk patients. The exam is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnets and radio waves to produce images of the breast. No ionizing radiation is used. Breast MRI can also be used in addition to mammography and/or ultrasound to better evaluate dense breast tissue and palpable lumps.
