  • Reclining, comfortable, and padded chair
  • Exam preparation is faster and easier than a traditional MRI
  • Great alternative for claustrophobic patients (no full body tubes)
  • Excellent for children (parents are allowed in room during procedure)
  • Same high image quality as traditional MRIs

We provide our referring physicians with uncompromised quality while simultaneously allowing physicians to improve the experience of their patients.

  • The scanner's industry-leading gradients deliver 70mT/m of power and 300T/m/s of slew rate, while short echo spacing and high signal-to-noise ratio enable high resolution and sharp images
  • Physicians can now request 1.5T quality acquisitions of the arm, including elbow, wrist and hand; or the leg, including knee, ankle and foot-and get the image quality and consistency they expect from a more powerful, conventional MR system.
  • Santa Barbara Extremity MRI also works with local radiologists and provides images through the same system most local physicians currently utilize.
