3 Tesla (3T) Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The most advanced MRI south of Boston is here at Cape Cod Healthcare. The 3T MRI at Wilkens Outpatient Medical Complex is the newest and most powerful high-resonance imaging technology available. This high-magnetic field 3 Tesla MAGNETOM Verio MRI offers clearer images more quickly than standard 1.5 Tesla scanners, increasing the quality of the images while decreasing the amount of time a scan can take.
This increased image clarity provides enhanced views of the brain, spine and particularly the vascular system, a benefit unreachable by less powerful MRIs. This ability may allow a 3T angiogram scan to replace invasive vascular testing, like diagnostic catheter procedures.
Our 3T MRI also performs FAST MRI breast cancer screening. This accelerated imaging is highly effective in detecting breast masses, particularly in patients with dense breasts.
The 3T MRI at Wilkens Outpatient Medical Complex offers whole-body coverage, minimizing the need to reposition a patient for multiple scans and with its open bore design, the scanner allows patients more room and greater comfort for the duration of the exam.
Providing the fastest, clearest diagnostic imaging is part of the exceptional care offered through the 3T MRI at Wilkens Outpatient Medical Complex.
