Diagnostic Imaging & Testing
Diagnostic imaging and testing services are part of our commitment to comprehensive orthopedic care. The experts at Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute ensure you get the right answers – and the right care.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Located in a comfortable, private suite within our hospital, our MRI system offers high quality images for your diagnostic needs. Our team includes board-certified radiologists who specialize in orthopedics, as well as skilled MRI technologists with advanced certification. Before we are able to schedule your MRI we must receive authorization from your health insurance provider in order to proceed. This process can take up to five business days. Our radiologists provide same-day readings for all exams, and upon request, we will save your digital images to a disk so you can take them with you. We also store your images for fast retrieval, should you need them at any point in the future.
Our hospital’s MRI is designed for patient comfort and high quality imaging. Compared to traditional closed MRI, our short-bore MRI is larger in diameter and has more room between the patient’s head and the magnet, a true benefit for patients who may experience anxiety or other discomfort in small spaces.
