  • Siemens Next Generation 3T Magnetom Skyra Large Bore Scanner

For the first time, our 3 Tesla MRI Magnetom Skyra scanner brings to Lufkin and our surrounding Deep East Texas area the ability to scan the full spectrum of specialties including: 

  • Spine
  • Orthopedics
  • Neurology
  • Pediatrics
  • Cardiology
  • Angiography
  • Oncology
  • Body
  • Prostate (no endorectal coil required)
  • Breast

This system is a high performance, 3 Tesla, large bore, whole body imaging system. The 3 Tesla Magnetom Skyra is designed to provide a friendly experience for patients without compromising the clinical performance required to obtain the highest resolution MRI images possible today.  

The Large Bore eliminates patient anxiety before and during exams finally allowing even the most claustrophobic patients access to the highest quality MRI imaging available today. 

The Large Bore / Hi-Speed Imaging, provides significantly shorter scan times in an almost completely silent environment resulting in optimized patient comfort for adults and children.

Why Choose the Magnetom Skyra 3 Tesla over the 1.5 Tesla Scanner

The Difference Could Potentially Save Your Life

What's the difference between a 1.5 Tesla scanner versus a 3 Tesla scanner? More than you can imagine! With new, sophisticated technology, the 3 Tesla machine sets the new standard in medical grade imaging. The 3 Tesla scanner generates twice the strength of 1.5 machines, achieving exceptional detail of the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal system. With the MAGNETOM Skyra 3 Tesla scanner, radiologists are able to differentiate between benign and potentially hazardous medical conditions with confidence, and can even lead to earlier diagnosis/treatment.

Faster scanning speeds

With Siemens’ new patient-adaptive technology, image quality and acquisition speed go to a whole new level. Think more exams per day, faster scheduling, faster scanning, and higher quality studies for all.

An MRI as unique as you are

The roominess of our 70 cm Open Bore will accommodate a large variety of patient sizes, shapes and conditions. The preferred design by claustrophobic patients. But all patients will enjoy the extra room, too.

Imaging should be seen, not heard

That’s why Siemens has engineered the Magnetom® 3 Tesla Skyra with numerous noise reduction features.  Individually and together these features contribute to a quieter, almost silent, MRI experience for our patients, which can lead to improved patient comfort and compliance.

Ideal imaging for every patient

We cover the full patient spectrum for MRI scanning:  pediatrics, obese, critically ill, kyphotic, and those with respiratory problems, pain, mobility issues, and claustrophobia or anxiety.

Your health, your schedule

We provide more convenient MRI scheduling (eventually to include weekends). After images are processed, MRI-trained radiologists will have instant access for interpretation. MRI images and reports will be ready within 24 hours
