What Is a Traditional MRI?

A traditional MRI is a type of machine that scans the body using magnets, thus the name Magnetic Resonance Imaging. A traditional MRI has a tube that is a bit larger than the length of an average human body, and a table that extends in front of the tube. The patient lies on the table, is positioned properly, and then the table slides inside the imaging tube.

The space inside the tube is confined, and the tube is closed on one end and open on the other. Unfortunately, most MRIs require a person be slid in head first, meaning the open end is near the feet. Once inside the tube, the patient cannot sit up, because there is not enough room to do so. Therefore, the only way to get out of the tube is by sliding back out. Even with the mechanical assistance of sliding the tray electronically, it takes time to get a patient out of the tube, and that can seem like an eternity for someone having a claustrophobic reaction.

Additionally, traditional MRIs can take anywhere from a few minutes to over an hour to perform the completed scan, so the patient has to spend a good deal of time in the tube.

What's an Open MRI?

An open MRI is a technology created by Fonar that allows the patient to sit or lie between the magnets that perform the resonance imaging, but without having to be encased in a tube. The magnets themselves can be moved to be properly positioned where the patient needs them, so the patient is only surrounded by the machine exactly where they are being scanned. So for an abdominal scan, the head, chest and feet would be 'open' and not encased in a tube or in the machine.

The advantage of this is that patients feel less claustrophobic, are able to be 'inside' the machine for longer, and this reduces the overall time needed to perform the MRI and also produces better compliance with the patient being still during imaging.

With the open MRI, patients can be placed in multiple positions as well, to get the best image possible, while in a traditional MRI, patients are left mostly to lie flat on their backs and not move.
