3 Tesla MRI
A faster MRI? It's a dream come true!
The latest technology allows for a faster and more efficient MRI exam - and less wait time for you. What's more, our MAGNETOM Skyra's Open Bore design helps prevent that "closed-in" feeling.
As of 2017, our 3 Tesla MRI is the best MRI unit clinically available in the United States. The strong 3T magnet gives you excellent, highly detailed images and resolution. While our 1.5 tesla magnets at our hospitals and Slocum Dickson continue to provide valuable diagnostic tools, the 3T will provide greater detail.
While you enjoy a more comfortable exam, the powerful 3T magnet provides exceptional images so your doctor can have greater diagnostic confidence.
You're not dreaming!
The Best Things in Life are Three.

Letter to referring providers
CMI is pleased to announce that we have acquired a new system that offers improved benefits for you and
Introducing our new 3 Tesla MAGNETOM Skyra located at the Utica Business Park. This is the most
powerful MRI that is clinically available in the U.S.
The open bore design combined with a 550 lb. patient weight limit, gives us even more flexibility with patients
that have special considerations.
Our scan times will be 50% faster, which means a better experience for your patient. The technology also
includes a quiet mode so that noise is lessened during the scan.
The strong 3T magnet gives you excellent, highly-detailed images and resolution. While our 1.5 tesla magnets
at our hospital centers and Slocum Dickson continue to provide valuable diagnostic tools, the 3 T will provide
even greater detail.
Our 3 T will be preferred for most neurology exams, prostate, vascular, abdomen and rectal cancer staging
exams. For prostate, there is no need for an endorectal coil, making it a comfortable exam for the patient.
We anticipate our new scanner to be ready for scanning in October. Please call our scheduling department
directly at (315) 792- 1985 to schedule a patient.
