Introducing Tower Radiology's New Weight-Bearing Open MRI
Tampa, Florida: Tower Radiology Centers, the largest outpatient radiology practice in Tampa Bay, is proud to announce the addition of a New Dedicated Weight-Bearing Open MRI with its revolutionary design. The open and tilting design is an innovative way of performing MRI in which the position of the patient becomes an integral part of the outcome of the examination all while providing great patient comfort. MRI imaging in a natural, standing position allows the force of gravity to generate bio-mechanical changes in anatomy to obtain significant details such as a disc herniation or “pinched” nerve that can become stressed under compression and might otherwise not be visible with a traditional MRI performed only in a lying down position. This New Dedicated Weight-Bearing Open MRI will be available at Tower Radiology Center - Bruce B. Downs located at 3069 Grand Pavilion Drive in Tampa.
Introducing Tower Radiology’s New Dedicated Extremity Open MRI
Tower Radiology Centers is proud to announce the addition of a New Dedicated Extremity Open MRI, the perfect fit for Musculoskeletal Imaging. This MRI unit is a leading performer in imaging of the knees, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists and hands to diagnose illnesses or injuries in the muscles, bones and joints of an extremity. It offers a complete range of high quality imaging capabilities while providing an optimal patient experience thanks to its unique ergonomics and open design. During the exam, the patient is able to comfortably lie back and relax on an open couch while placing only their arm or leg into the MRI opening, allowing claustrophobic patients to feel at ease. This New Dedicated Extremity Open MRI will be available at Tower Radiology Center - Habana located at 4719 North Habana Avenue in Tampa.
