X-ray / MRI
Northern Pines Orthopaedic Clinic has a revolutionary Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system, E-SCAN. MRI offers a valuable tool to the Orthopaedic surgeon, essentially providing a window into the human body without using potentially harmful X-Rays or invasive techniques. The E-SCAN MRI system is designed for those patients who find standard MRI systems to be too confining, noisy or intimidating.
The new E-SCAN Open MRI system is a dedicated extremity MRI system designed to fit into physicians’ offices. The system provides images of the extremities (shoulder, knee, ankle, wrist, elbow, hand, foot) of equal or better quality to whole-body MRI systems.
E-SCAN provides a stress-free MRI examination. The patient lies comfortably outside the magnet and extends only the anatomy being studied into the magnet. The exam is virtually silent and completely claustrophobia-free.
The new E-SCAN system provides images so detailed that they approach the fine-line anatomical drawings found in medical textbooks. The images are of such amazing clarity and detail that the physicians are able to pinpoint a number of problems that can occur in the extremities. The addition of an E_SCAN system complements and extends the range of high quality diagnostic services already available to the residents of our community.
Magnetic resonance imaging is considered non-invasive and it offers fewer risks than some diagnostic alternatives. E-Scan reduces the time a patient waits for treatment. The surgeons at Northern Pines Orthopaedic Clinic are able to examine, MRI scan and typically begin treatment on the first visit to our office. Patients no longer have to go across town and wait a week or more to begin treatment. We can get patients back to work faster and with less anxiety and typically at a lower cost.
