New Silent Scan MRI

Onslow is committed to providing our community with the best healthcare in the region, and also making sure each patient's experience is the best it can be. Investing in our new Silent Scan MRI technology allows our patients to have a more comfortable MRI experience, while still getting top-of-the-line imaging results.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to generate detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.
Our new Optima MR450w MRI with GEM Suite and Silent Scan features an innovative new design that places emphasis on patient comfort without compromising quality or capabilities. According to General Electric, Silent Scan uses a unique combination of three advanced technologies to eliminate the acoustic noise at the source, revolutionizing how MR images are acquired.


Key patient benefits include:

  • Excellent image quality for accurate diagnosis
  • Reduced anxiety during the scan due to a quieter environment
  • Comfort-enhancing features, including a wide bore diameter, feet-first imaging, and bright inner bore lighting for a more comfortable, open experience
  • Reduced scan times
  • Reduced incidence of rescans
