Wide bore MRI systems combine the optimized comfort of conventional open bore machine with the high-quality imaging of a conventional closed bore system. For many years, the only option for a large number of patients was a conventional open MRI. However, open MRI does not produce the same high-quality images. The introduction of Siemens’ Espree — a 70-cm, wide bore MRI —created a brand new MRI technology. This new technology available at NCH Imaging - Bonita provides an option for higher quality images, better diagnostic ability and a lot less claustrophobic feel than before.
