Edmonds Orthopedic Center offers advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging services through North Puget Sound MRI (located at the former site of CDI/Alliance Imaging in Mountlake Terrace).
North Puget Sound MRI is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for both Spine and Musculoskeletal Imaging. ACR accreditation is the highest level of accreditation attainable and the achievement demonstrates our commitment providing high quality, cost-effective imaging services to our community.
State of the Art Technology
The facility houses the newest Siemens 1.5 Tesla MRI, which uses state-of-the-art technological advances in MR imaging to provide extremely high resolution and detail for musculoskeletal, spine and neurologic imaging. This the most advanced MRI unit in our local area provides the highest quality images to aid in your diagnosis.
The scanner’s dimensions feature a wide bore and short length that dramatically increase patient comfort. This more open feel is particularly important for patients who might otherwise experience anxiety with older technology scanners that produce a feeling of claustrophobia.
Shorter Scan Times
The advanced technological applications that are unique to this new scanner allow for significantly shorter scan times, with most examinations being completed in 30 minutes. Shorter scan times mean a better patient experience!
North Puget Sound MRI is staffed by registered, nationally-licensed MRI technologists who have years of experience with MR imaging. They have completed advanced training in MRI physics, cross-sectional anatomy and MRI pathology. Having such highly-trained technologists means you get the best quality study and your doctor has the right information to aid in decision-making.
All MRI studies are interpreted by board-certified, sub-specialty trained radiologists who specialize in musculoskeletal and neurological imaging. This means your doctor works in partnership with the most highly trained subspecialized musculoskeletal radiologists.
North Puget Sound MRI’s focus on patient care, comfort and convenience makes it a leader in the local MR imaging market and the place patients prefer to go for their MR imaging needs.
From start to finish of your visit at EOC we put you directly in touch with a surgeon, so you receive an accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment plan. That means no wasted visits and co-pays!
