MRI

The Progressive Physician Associates (PPA) team of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologists have at our disposal state of the art MRI equipment and software which enables us to obtain exquisite imaging of the body. This in combination with fellowship training allows us to provide the most accurate imaging and diagnosis available. PPA physicians have fellowship training in the fields of Neuroradiology, Body Imaging, Musculoskeletal Imaging, Thoracic Imaging, and Breast Imaging, giving us the ability to image any body part with equal expertise.

Our MRI equipment includes several 1.5 Tesla MRI Units, an OPEN 0.7 Tesla unit and a wide bore 1.5 Tesla unit. With this group of magnets and the ability to offer anesthesia, we can provide MRI imaging for patients of all ages and size. Anesthesia is often used for patients with claustrophobia as well.

We are able to offer state of the art Breast MRI examinations, including MRI guided breast biopsy.

Our newest equipment allows us to obtain angiographic images of the vascular system without the need for contrast. This is particularly helpful in patients with acute of chronic renal insufficiency or history of severe allergic reaction to contrast.
