Experience the Benefits of Our Advanced Open MRI Machine at Winchester Imaging

At Winchester Imaging, our Open MRI machine, also known as Magnetic Resonance Imaging, offers a spacious and comfortable experience for patients. Our advanced Open MRI not only provides ample room but also delivers accurate diagnoses with its high resolution. Thanks to its high field strength, our Open MRI also results in shorter exam times and clear images.

Key advantages

Higher Resolution Images

Thanks to advancements in Open MRI technology our new Open MRI creates higher resolution images, which in turn greatly improves the quality of the images produced.  Because of the higher quality images our Radiologists have much better ability to accurately diagnose your specific exam. Our magnet has gone from 1.0T to a 1.2T Strength.

Faster Scan times

These advances in technology allow for a stronger signal strength as well, which allows for faster scan times. This means less time in the machine and a more pleasant experience for you. Our commitment is to provide our patients with the best in quality imaging services, which is why we have invested in the most state of the art magnet available today.

More Spacious

While our previous MRI was considered open,  our new Open MRI, gives patients an unprecedented  270 degrees of  open view.  OASIS is a vertical field whole body magnet, with an even more spacious feel. Because of this, many of our patients with special needs will benefit from this new more open design. For instance if you have claustrophobia or need a more spacious and comfortable MRI to stay calm during the procedure, we have you covered.

Lula and her blonde co-worker were so nice and friendly. Not just professionally so, but warm and genial. I felt “heard” and cared for on my visit. That is rare now days.
