Imaging Center of Louisiana - Services
As consumers become more sophisticated and more demanding, the need for high quality care delivery will become even greater.
Imaging Center of Louisiana provides a full range of diagnostic radiology services with a state of the art 16 slice spiral CT scanner, a high field “closed” MRI, high field open MRI, digital X-Ray, and digital fluoroscopy. CT, X-ray, and fluoroscopy are generally available on a “walk in” basis.
We feature the Upright High-Field Open MRI system by Fonar. This upright or standing MRI allows patients to be scanned standing, sitting or in any of the conventional recumbent positions. This multi-positional MRI system accommodates an unrestricted range of motion for flexion, extension, lateral bending and rotation studies of the cervical and lumbar spine. The Upright MRI is a weight-bearing, Mega-Open MRI , making it the most non-claustrophobic whole-body MRI scanner available. The magnet’s front-open and top-open design provides and unprecedented degree of comfort and easily accommodates large patients. It has been proven that Upright, weight-bearing scans may reveal pathologies which would not be detected on a convention recumbent MRI system.
