Open MRI of Frederick uses General Electric’s Ovation MRI – the most open MRI available. The instrument is designed to accommodate claustrophobic, large framed, pediatric or apprehensive patients. Because of the design of the magnet, Open MRI permits a loved one or a friend to sit alongside you during the exam. They can even hold your hand!
Open MRI equipment is ableto accomodate those who are unable to tolerate the confinement of conventional MRI equipment, while providing physicians with the crisp, clean images they require.
Open MRI of Frederick is located in the Rose Hill Plaza just next door to FMH's main building in suites A6 & A7. For additional information or to tour the facility, please contact us at: 240-379-6177.

(Keep in mind while you are reading the text that is contained in the body of linked pages below, that while the procedure will be the same and the explanations of how the technology works are identical - the equipment images you will see in the linked pages below display the conventional tube-type MRI. The Open MRI equipment will look like the image you see above. With Open MRI there is no "tube" into which your body is placed.)
