High-Field Open MRI

Many people worry that getting an MRI scan might be confining and uncomfortable. But with the Philips Panorama 1.0T MRI, the widest, most open high-field MRI system made today, those worries vanish. And while you’ll find the Panorama MRI comfortable, your doctor will find the image quality unmatched. That means better diagnoses and fewer rescans.

The Panorama MRI is now available at Methodist Hospital’s newest location at West Dodge Medical Plaza, through West Dodge Imaging, LLC. It’s the only one of its kind in the city. Ask your doctor for more information.
