MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging

What is Open MRI!

Stacks Image 430

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance imaging. It is a diagnostic tool that uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to allow doctors to look at certain parts of the body more clearly than with other imaging equipment. An MRI procedure uses no harmful radiation, is completely non-invasive and painless with no known side-effects. The images captured by the MRI are transferred to film similar to a traditional x-ray and are interpreted by a radiologist. The results are provided to your physician who will plan your care accordingly. The pictures produced by an MRI are used in early diagnosis of a variety of medical conditions, including orthopedic injuries and disorders, central nervous system disorders, strokes, and cancer.

Haider Spine Center Medical Group, Inc Receives MRI Accreditation by the IAC.

The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) accreditation is a "seal of approval" that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of MRI.  IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to MRI, which include physicians, technologists, and physicists.  MRI accreditation is required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and in some cases by private insurers.  However, patients should remain vigilant in making sure that their MRI procedures are performed within accredited facilities, because for some facilities it remains a voluntary process.
