image-product 1.5T&nbspMagnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance (MRI) is a non-invasive and painless imaging method that uses magnetic fields to assess the human body.
MRI provides exceptionally detailed images of all body structures in multiple planes without the use of ionising radiation.
Skanmex offer the high-field GE scanner Signa HDI (1.5 Tesla), which has greater diagnostic capabilities than a low-field MRI (0.2 – 0.35 Tesla). This fixture is designed for highly specialized neurological, oncological and orthopaedic diagnostic procedures.
Due to the presence of two magnetic resonances of different emitted magnetic field flow, we can select the appropriate equipment according to the patient’s conditions and contraindications. It also increases the performance and appointment availability of our clinic, which allows us to determine the nearest available appointment time in Wrocław.

THE WEIGHT LIMIT IN OUR CENTRE FOR MRI (1,5 T) IS 120 KG
