Spring Hill MRI is dedicated to the emerging technology of low-field, patient-friendly Magnetic Resonance Imaging systems. Claustrophobic, obese and pediatric patients, along with those suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, are often able to comfortably undergo MRI examinations in these “open architecture” systems while failing to tolerate traditional “closed” MRI systems. Open systems are quieter and more comfortable for patients. Open MRI systems are rapidly becoming a preferred choice for many healhcare consumers.

Open magnets which have been developed more recently, typically are either permanent magnets or resistive electromagnets. The typical open configuration consists of two large, rounded, horizontally oriented metal discs that are the poles of the magnet between which the patient is placed. These magnets have no sides and are thus “open”.
