Wide Bore vs. Open MRI
At WICE, we use top-of-the-line technology such as our advanced Wide Bore MRI machine, as opposed to its precedent, the Open MRI. The main difference between the two is that the Wide Bore MRI is much more spacious, allowing for maximum comfort for our more claustrophobic or larger patients.
Additionally, the Wide Bore MRI produces higher quality images than the Open MRI. This is because Open MRIs use up to 1.5 teslas, or 1.5 units of power, while our 3T Wide Bore MRI uses 3 teslas of power. With twice as much power, the Wide Bore MRI is able to produce the most accurate, detailed scans available.
