Precision Opens State-Of-The-Art MRI Facility

Our new facility is located in our Seventh Ave. medical building, in Chardon, just down the hall from our physician offices.
What is an MRI?
MRI is short for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a procedure used to scan patients and determine the severity of certain injuries. An MRI machine uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the body. Unlike CT scanning or general x-ray studies, no ionizing radiation is involved with an MRI. A common reason people go in to get an MRI is for joint or back pain. The exam itself is a painless procedure that is noninvasive and takes about 30 – 45 minutes. Because humans are not able to feel any type of radio waves, patients will not feel a thing.
Appointments are available in the new facility which accepts most major insurance plans.
