Wide Bore vs. Open MRI
At WICE, we use top-of-the-line technology, such as the advanced Wide Bore MRI, as opposed to its precedent, the Open MRI. The main difference between the two is that our 3T Wide Bore MRI is more powerful than a 1.5T Open MRI. This then allows for higher resolution and more accurate scans.
Our 3T MRI is four times as strong as a 1.5T MRI, prompting most physicians to request a 3T MRI order for their patients. With a 3T MRI, scans have significantly higher spatial resolution. Comparatively, the 3T MRI technology offered at WICE is superior technically to that of a lower field strength. Because of this, we are able to produce the most accurate, detailed scans available to assist in your road to recovery.
