4 Centennial Drive, Peabody
Our newly installed, remodeled suite has features that enhance the patient experience, making it more comfortable. Both MRI machines at this location are designed to reduce claustrophobia and anxiety.
The new suite enables patients to personalize their experience by choosing soothing music and scenes to view during their exam. The scene selections include aquariums, beaches and space travel. The scenery lighting may be adjusted to provide a more peaceful environment.
Our advanced 3.0T and 1.5 T MRI technology at this location provides exceptional and precise image quality in a reduced scan time.
NSMC Salem Hospital, 81 Highland Ave
Our advanced MRI technology at this location supplies physicians with clear images for a comprehensive diagnosis. We recently celebrated our newest MRI machine at our Salem location with a ribbon cutting event. The new machine enables us to expand our services to more patients and ensure improved collaboration between our expert MRI staff and other specialists. During the scan, our patients in Salem can enjoy images of palm trees while listening to music of their choice.
Both the Salem and Peabody locations offer extended hours during evenings, weekends and minor holidays to provide our patients an appointment quickly. Our hours are Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m. – 11 p.m. and, Saturday and Sunday, 6:30 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Our relationship with Partners HealthCare enables physicians at all of our MRI locations to connect with other experts, including those at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital through one electronic medical record.
Our MRI sites are also able to accommodate children. We have specialty radiologists on staff to meet the unique needs of our pediatric patients. Parents can accompany their children into the scan room and remain throughout the exam.
Implants and conditions that may be affected by an MRI
The strong magnetic field of the MRI can adversely affect some implanted prosthetic devices. Our staff screens for these conditions and devices several times during the screening and history process, as a safety precaution. The types of implants and conditions we need to know about include:
- Cochlear (middle ear) implant
- Eye implant
- Implanted insulin pump
- Metal fragments (including bullets and shrapnel)
- Metal particles or chips in your eye
- Pregnancy (any stage)
- Retinal tacks
- Surgical aneurysm clip of the brain
