The heart of the third party MRI facility at St. Michael's Hospital is the new Philips Intera MR system that has achieved the industry's highest rating for magnet homogeneity. The Intera's "short-bore" scanner is half the length of traditional scanners, eliminating the feeling of claustrophobia that patients often experience in the long narrow tube of other MRI machines. The combined power and flexibility of the patient-friendly Intera system maximizes speed and guarantees unsurpassed image quality. The result is that any MRI exam - whether it's neurological, musculoskeletal, thoracic or abdominal imaging or contrast-enhanced angiography - can be finished in record time.
