New Open MRI Scanner at TCO Edina

On Feb. 20 Twin Cities Orthopedics Edina began using a new state-of-the-art Open MRI Scanner, the Optima MR430s 1.5T. The scanner delivers a high level of comfort in thanks to its innovative design, which allows patients to relax and recline in a padded chair beside the scanner as their MRI is performed. The MRI process is much quieter than that with a conventional MRI scanner and is most commonly used for MRI scans of the hand, wrist, elbow, ankle, knee, and foot.
