3.0T MRI Scanner at Waterloo
Vista Diagnostics has invested in a GE Healthcare 3.0T MRI scanner - located at the Waterloo site - to be able to provide clinicians and healthcare professionals with increased resolution and enhanced quality scans.
The 3.0T MRI scanner is twice as powerful as standard MRI scanners, so has the ability to scan faster and with higher detail.
Extra contrast enhancement
Ability to see better bone and joint detail
Improved fat saturation for clearer images
The increased image clarity is particularly beneficial for conditions of the brain, spine and musculoskeletal system.
The 3T scanner is also the better option for nervous and claustrophobic patients as we can scan a patient quicker while also providing a more comfortable experience:
Larger bore hole
Softer, flexible coils
Re-designed table surface to alleviate pressure points
High quality scans at low cost
Vista Diagnostics are committed to providing an affordable MRI scanning service without compromising on quality, therefore scan prices have not been increased for the new 3T scanner.
