    Winchester Imaging Open MRI Welcomes

Our New State of the Art Open MRI


At Winchester Imaging we use an Open MRI (also called Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to accommodate our patients that prefer a more spacious experience. As well as offering a much roomier exam, our  New Open MRI also provides an even more accurate diagnosis due to its high level of resolution. Thanks to the high field strength we benefit from shorter exam times and easier to read images.

This is the one of many upgrades we plan on  making to our facility, in order to serve you better.

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.

What Our Patients Have To Say..

I had a great experience at WI. They were able to get me in for two tests the same day and the receptionist was understanding and extremely helpful. Once I arrived we realized my date of birth was not on the order. The receptionist immediately called the doctor and when she did not hear back she called again. The technician was friendly and took the time to explain everything to me. I was in and out within an hour. I highly recommended Winchester Imaging.

Great experience. Staff is friendly and forward. The rad tech, Hollly, who registered me and took my images was quick, accommodating, and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate to go there again.

I am so glad I found this place. I was in and out with no wait for an MRI. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I’ve had imaging done at the hospital and it is like being in an assembly line & takes forever.
