Open MRI, MRI Exam, Radiologicum Munich

Must patients with claustrophobia refrain from undergoing the examination?

Open MRI unit 

We examine patients with claustrophobia, whenever possible, in an open MRI with daylight. The latest generation open MRI unit we operate produces cross-sectional images with the same image quality than that of a closed MRI scanner.

This includes examination of the entire musculoskeletal system, the central nervous system and especially of the female breast (MR mammography).

Also for the examination of children and obese people the open MRI is an excellent investigation option.

Alternatives

If you opt to have an MRI scan performed with one of our other devices despite your claustrophobia, we offer a calmative agent prior to the examination. Some examinations, for example those of the heart, can only be completed to a limited extent with the open system.
