Open MRI

Now at our Mica Drive Clinic in Carson City! Our state-of-the-art open MRI is less restrictive and confined than a traditional MRI, providing a much more comfortable and relaxed experience.

What to expect for your MRI

BEFORE YOUR MRI
  • If you are experiencing pain, you may want to take a medication to alleviate it before your exam. You will be required to lay still for 35 to 45 minutes.
  • Although it is an open scanner design, in some exams such as shoulder or cervical spine you will be positioned with your head in close proximity under a platform. If you experience anxiety related to claustrophobia, ask your doctor to prescribe a medication to take before the exam.
  • We will provide gowns or shorts for certain exams or you may want to wear something comfortable without metal.
  • Arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork.
DURING YOUR MRI
  • The duration of the exam will be from 35 to 45 minutes.
  • You will be required to lay still during the exam.
  • The tech will be in communication with you.

Patient Reviews

See What Our Patients Have To Say

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we take the time to get to know each patient so that we can develop a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to his or her specific needs, lifestyle, and goals.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.

"Dr. Jones and his staff through the surgical procedures and other methods they have performed over the years have enhanced my daily living experience dramatically. I am leading a more productive life without the daily pain I dealt with in the past. I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life."
