Pain Care New Location & MRI

Pain Care has some exciting news! We have been keeping a little secret but now the secret is out! Pain Care has its own open MRI machine. We can now order and offer our patients MRIs within our own facility! Our MRI machine will be located at our brand new Fayetteville, GA location: 600 W. Lanier Ave Ste 204 Fayetteville, GA 30214.

 

MRIs sound like a nightmare– but they don't have to be, especially ours because it's OPEN! 

 

Here’s what to expect during your MRI at Pain Care’s facility: 

 

Getting an MRI scan is probably not on your list of top ten things to do in your free time but Pain Care is here to help make it a little more enjoyable. Unfortunately, sometimes getting an MRI, which stands for magnetic resonance imaging, is just a medically necessary evil. In case you’re not familiar with the test, an MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to make detailed pictures of your insides. When you’re inside an MRI machine, its magnetic field temporarily realigns hydrogen atoms in your body. Radio waves make these atoms create very faint signals– and those signals are used to make cross-sectional images. These images are then layered on top of each other to give doctors a really good view of the inside of your body that they can see from different views and angles.  

Now why choose Pain Care’s open MRI machine over others?

It is OPEN! This means if you are claustrophobic, you will not need any medication to help relax or sedation to help get through your MRI. Open MRIs are just like they sound- they are open, while still using magnets to take images of the inside of the body. Instead of an enclosed capsule, the open MRI uses a magnet on the top and bottom and is open on all four sides. This style of machine decreases the risk of claustrophobia and panic attacks exponentially and allows patients of all shapes and sizes to be able to make use of an MRI to accurately diagnose their issues.

Other advantages to choosing Pain Care’s open MRI includes the following:
