It is important to take a look around and see all the signs around you! For MRI Safety Week we wanted to show some very important signs you might encounter in an imaging center.

The MR environment has unique safety hazards for patients with implants, external devices, and accessory medical devices. It is important to follow instructions and screening requirements before and during your appointment.

Remember that the magnet is always on!

California Imaging Institute is proud to serve the Central Valley with 3 MRI machines, with night appointments available! 🎉

Our technology combines the advancements in MRI with sophisticated engineering to not only provide a completely new level of patient comfort with flexible coils and fast scan times but superior image quality.

In connection with @advancedmedicalimaging (our sister facility), we have 6 MRI machines in total! If one of us is unable to schedule your exam, the other will! We are locally owned and operated and will continue to provide the best care possible!

Absolutely impossible to make an appointment without being on hold for 20 minutes. Anytime you call you’re 15 in the queue. Go elsewhere.

Nikola Tesla discovered the Rotating Magnetic Field in 1882 in Budapest, Hungary. This was a fundamental discovery in physics.

In 1956, the "Tesla Unit" was proclaimed in the Rathaus of Munich, Germany by the International Electro-technical Commission-Committee of Action. All MRI machines are calibrated in "Tesla Units". The strength of a magnetic field is measured in Tesla or Gauss Units. The stronger the magnetic field, the stronger the amount of radio signals which can be elicited from the body's atoms and therefore the higher the quality of MRI images.

What are some common uses of PET-CT?🧐

Many people are not aware of what PET-CT can be used for. To help we created a list of why Doctors perform PET-CT scans with us!

-Doctors perform PET/CT scans to:
-Detect cancer and/or make a diagnosis.
-Determine whether cancer has spread in the body.
-Assess the effectiveness of treatment.
-Determine if the cancer has returned after treatment.
-Evaluate prognosis.
-Assess tissue metabolism and viability.
-Determine the effects of a heart attack myocardial infarction on areas of the heart.
-Identify areas of the heart muscle that would benefit from angioplasty or coronary artery bypass surgery (in combination with a myocardial perfusion scan).
-Evaluate brain abnormalities, such as tumors, memory disorders, seizures, and other central nervous system disorders.
-Map normal human brain and heart function.

Feeling anxious about being claustrophobic for your MRI scan?🧐

At California Iamging Institute we provide headphones that play music to help you relax. The music can distract you from the reminder that you’re in a semi-enclosed space. You can request your favorite music with your technologist.

Earplugs are available for those who prefer silence to music when trying to relax, you can wear earplugs to block out the whirring and rattling noises of the MRI machine.

We provide warm blankets if the scan allows. Having a blanket wrapped around you during the scan may increase feelings of security and peacefulness.

Research shows deep, slow, and controlled breathing can significantly reduce anxiety and can help you stay calm during the MRI scan.

In some situations, medication may be the only thing that relaxes you enough to endure the MRI. Medication is often necessary if you’re worried that claustrophobia could induce a panic attack during the MRI. If you know you’ll need extra assistance with relaxation during an MRI, you can ask your doctor to prescribe a sedative to put you to sleep for your MRI scan. We also provide IV Sedation upon MD request.

Lastly, CII provides Wide Bore MRI scanners that allow for a more expansive imaging experience!

What are the differences between a CT and MRI scan???🧐
Here are some ways to distinguish the two!

CT Scan:
-typically can be described as having the shape of a donut. Like a donut, it also has a hole directly through the machine.
-CT scan uses special x-ray equipment to obtain images.
-A CT is usually specialized for several types of tissue: lung, bone, soft tissue, and blood vessels

MRI Scan:
-typically can be described to be like a tanning bed. For an MRI machine, the person also lies on a table that moves into a doughnut-shaped device, but the doughnut is much thicker. At AMI we have three 1.5 T wide bore MRI scanners available.
-An MRI is specialized for the body's major joints, the spine for disc disease, and the soft tissues of the extremities.
