COVID-19 Notice

Radiology Affiliates Imaging is open and providing care at both of our imaging centers. Screening exams have resumed at all of our sites. Based on guidance from the CDC, state and federal governments, and national radiology leaders, RAI has modified our policies and procedures. These important changes will help keep you safe.

All patients must be screened before their visit, so you cannot walk-in for your exam. We ask that you call to schedule all of your imaging studies and when you need to visit to pick up medical records. Please wear a mask and bring your own pen.

Lawrenceville Location Announces Open MRI Services

Lawrenceville Location Announces Open MRI Services

We are happy to announce that our Lawrenceville location can now accept Open MRI patients. The sky is the limit with RAI, offering you and your physician more options than ever before.

Open MRI is an imaging technique that uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to obtain images similar to those obtained in a traditional MRI, but it does not require you to be placed inside a tightly enclosed tube. As a result of many patients finding traditional MRIs too claustrophobic, open MRIs were developed, featuring open sides or wider openings that relieve the feeling of claustrophobia.

Open MRIs use powerful magnetic fields combined with radio waves and computers to produce highly-detailed images of internal organs, bones and joints, and other structures. Like traditional MRIs, open MRIs do not use x-rays and they are completely painless. An open MRI machine has a larger opening compared to a standard MRI machine.

Open MRIs can be used for many of the same reasons as traditional MRIs, including producing images of bones, organs, blood vessels, nerves and other tissues; however, because they do not rely on the same tight, enclosed tube shape, the images they produce may not always provide the degree of clarity necessary for the most accurate diagnosis or assessment of some types of diseases or abnormalities. As a result, their use is more restricted, and depending on the type of images your treatment provider is seeking, an open MRI may not be the best choice for you. If your provider requires a traditional MRI and you're concerned you may feel claustrophobic, ask about sedatives that can help keep you calm.

Please contact us today to schedule your Open MRI visit.
