An Mri Exam in Comfort? No Way!

An MRI exam (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) can be restricting, loud, and uncomfortable for some people. Others may even experience claustrophobia (fear of closed in spaces).

Now say “goodbye” to the traditional MRI when needing a scan of an extremity. SOA is pleased to announce our newest technology, the digital O-Scan Dedicated Extremity MRI. This new MRI is built ergonomically with patient comfort in mind while providing impeccably detailed imaging of a finger, hand, wrist, elbow, arm, toe, foot, ankle, leg, or knee. Only the extremity needing to be scanned is inserted into the MRI … your head and body remain outside the magnet on a comfortable bed. In fact, it’s so comfy and quiet, you may want to read a book or even nap!

The O-Scan MRI is offered at our Venice office, located at 435 Commercial Court. Visit our website HERE to learn more about Sarasota Orthopedic Associates facilities and our physicians.
