MANA MRI offers 3 Tesla or 3T MRI, the fastest diagnostic imaging technology available from an expert team of radiologists in an ACR accredited facility. In fact, 3T MRI is four times to 100 times faster, depending on the type of scan, than standard MRI machines.
Since MANA MRI is located outside of a hospital, MANA MRI does not charge facility fees and has the lowest cost MRI exams in Northwest Arkansas. Patients can conveniently park right outside the MRI center door for a short walk to their exam.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most useful tools physicians have to make an accurate diagnosis and select an appropriate treatment for their patients. The 3T MRI can perform unique exams that conventional MRIs cannot. Because our 3T MRI images are computer-generated, the MANA radiologists can instantly share the images and report electronically with your doctor. It matters who reads your MRI images. Our radiologists are board-certified in diagnostic radiology and have expertise in neuroradiology. Our experienced radiologists examine the MRI images and communicate their expert interpretation with your doctor.
Thanks to advanced design features, your MRI should prove perfectly comfortable. In fact, you may even find the experience relaxing.
