Why 3T MRI for Spine Imaging?

There are literally hundreds and perhaps thousands of studies similar to the example below that illustrate and help answer the simple question “Why3T” ?

The images below top & bottom on the left are images acquired on a 1.5T MRI scanner in a local outpatient facility.

The patient was never provided a conclusive diagnosis, likely due to poor image quality and a low quality study. The patient’s symptoms continued and during a consult with a specialist, the patient was asked to have their MRI repeated due to the lack of diagnostic information available in the first MRI.

The patient was referred to Siker Imaging for a high resolution 3T MRI. The images on the right in comparison below are those acquired on the 3T MRI scanner at Siker Imaging.

We Are Still Open For Your Imaging Needs

Due to current concerns regarding COVID-19, we want to assure you and your patients that we are taking every extra measure to provide the highest quality advanced diagnostic imaging all the while keeping our patients and the community safe.

Hospitals are now restricting any advanced imaging. We are a small independent facility that is able to maintain high levels of sanitation and limit the number of patients in our office at one time.

We are completely sterilizing the office and equipment after every patient.

We have restricted all visitors.

We have adjusted our lobby so that we can ensure multiple patients are not in the office at the same time

We are adhering to strict social distancing guidelines.

We are screening patients and requesting patients with fevers or flu symptoms, been in contact with someone suspected to have the coronavirus or anyone that has traveled to an affected region to please call and cancel/reschedule their appointment.

We are updating our policies daily to coincide with the strictest of measures.

We are all in this together and are here for you and your patients.
