Arkansas Medical Imaging & Open MRI
MRI was founded in 1997. Our first scan was performed
on October 8, 1997 in Fayetteville. We now have two
very convenient facilities. Our first is location
at361 E. Millsap Rd. Our second facility opened November
11, 2003 in Bentonville at 1703 Phyllis, just west
of I-540 at Exit 86. Patients may park right outside
our buildings with no long admission process.
We like people to know they have a choice in where
they get their MRI done. Up to 60 percent of patients
choose an open MRI if they are given the opportunity.
At Arkansas Medical Imaging & Open MRI, patients
are our highest priority. We understand phobias
and apprehension. Our staff is trained to comfort
claustrophobic patients. Our goal is to make our
patients as comfortable as possible, while maintaining
the highest technical quality available.
We do the little things that may get overlooked in closed, tunnel-type MRI machines. Patients may even bring a friend or family member along to sit in the room with them during their scan. There is a music system in the machine allowing calming music, or patients may bring a CD of their favorite music. While we rarely need the patient to be sedated, the patient may consult their physician about this and we will gladly accommodate people who come to us with oral sedation.
