Service We Offer
Doctors can use the detailed images from an MRI to diagnose a wide variety of conditions. At Envision Open MRI, we can provide…
MRI FOR JOINT PAIN
MRIs can show doctors why your knees, hips, shoulders, or elbows hurt. The scan will reveal any swelling, tissue weakness, or bleeding.
80% of all adults will experience back pain. When it gets serious, a doctor will need an MRI to determine the pain’s source. Often, bulging or herniated discs will be the culprits. An MRI will help a doctor to decide whether physical therapy, steroid injections, or surgery will be the most effective intervention.
MRI FOR CANCER AND TUMORS
An MRI can be especially useful for cancer or tumors involving bones, or the brain.
MRI OF THE HEAD
Serious headaches, migraines, possible concussions or circulatory issues should be evaluated with an MRI. Imaging can also show problems with optic or auditory nerves.
MRI FOR SOFT TISSUE / SPORTS INJURIES
Intense activity can cause over-use injuries on soft tissues. With an MRI, doctors can see torn ligaments, muscle strains, groin pulls, tears on your hamstrings or rotator cuffs, and damaged tendons.
CT OF THE HEAD
Ideal for examining vascular tissue around the brain, CT scans can rule out strokes, detect bleeding and brain injuries, or find skull fractures.
CT OF THE SPINE
MRIs will find bulging or herniated discs, but CT scans will more effectively render bony details. They provide a quicker way to survey the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine – an excellent alternative if a patient cannot undergo an MRI.
CT OF THE ABDOMEN
These will evaluate your liver, kidneys, gall-bladder, and digestive tract. They can help identify any lesions or abnormalities.
CT OF THE CHEST
Chest CTs will identify complications that can arise from smoking. They can spot masses in the lungs or chest. And they can detect pulmonary emboli (blood clots in the lungs).
CT OF THE EXTREMITIES
A CT scan’s ability to render bony detail means it will find small or occult (hidden) fractures. These often arise in the ankles or feet.
