Minden, NV, Area Patients Can Receive the Benefits of Open MRI Technology at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic
Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic is pleased to make open MRI technology available to patients in the Minden, Nevada, area and beyond. MRIs (short for “magnetic resonance imaging”) are often a critical part of diagnosing orthopedic conditions, such as the following:
- Bulging and herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Sports injuries
This is because MRIs can generate images of bodily tissue with much more detail than could be found using a standard X-ray. While X-rays can only show hard tissues, MRIs can also show soft tissues like organs, muscles, and ligaments.
Despite the importance of MRIs, traditional MRI technology is known for being stressful, as it requires the patient to be fully surrounded by the machine during the scan. This is a particularly harrowing experience for claustrophobic patients who don’t like being in enclosed spaces, pediatric patients who want to hold a parent’s hand during the scan, and larger patients whose size might prevent them from fitting in the traditional MRI’s tube.
At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we understand that the thought of being diagnosed with a potentially serious medical condition is a stressful experience in and of itself. That’s why we’re so pleased to offer open MRI technology to patients in Minden, NV, and the surrounding area. Our open MRI machine features a wide, rotating table, offering patients a calm and relaxing diagnostic experience.
