Radiology Roundup: What’s The Best Procedure In Radiology?

 

Radiology Roundup-

Radiology boasts a plethora of procedures ranging from ultrasounds, CT scans, x-rays, mammograms, and more. It’s a bit of a battle, between all of these procedures, to be crowned the best procedure in radiology. Most radiology procedures are different but at Open MRI of Pueblo we agree that only one procedure should be king of radiology. The MRI of course!

Why is an MRI the best procedure in radiology?

MRI’s are used to take in depth looks into the human body. Using strong magnetic fields, MRI’s produce a picture of the body that can show the muscle tissue and bones in the body. How cool is it that?!

I’m not convinced yet, why is an MRI the best?

Well there are three types of MRI’s: wide, closed, and open MRI. The best type of MRI is definitely the open MRI because it increases patient comfort, provides shorter scan times, and can accommodate diverse patient height and weight. An open MRI also allows the patient to bring a friend or family member to accompany them while the scan is taking place. So you can get an MRI and talk with your loved one’s at the same time! What can be better than that?

So where’s the best place to get an Open MRI?

Well in our opinion, Open MRI of Pueblo is the best place to get an open MRI in the state. They have a friendly staff, experienced radiologists, and affordable prices for out-of-pocket patients. They are also ACR accredited, the highest honor an imaging center can receive, and puts patient comfort as it’s top priority.

So what are you waiting for? Make an appointment for the best procedure in radiology at the best place to get an MRI. Call (719) 404-0991 to make an appointment or talk to one of our staff members about any questions you may have!

How To Thank Your Doctor

 

How to (1)This week holds a holiday that means a lot to the medical field. National Doctor’s Day of course! National Doctor’s Day is a day to celebrate and appreciate doctors all around the country. Doctors do so much for the individual patient, communities, and the world as a whole. If it weren’t for doctors we would all be dead. With such a prominent position in the community, it can be hard to know how to show your thanks. Here are a couple ways how you can thank your doctor.

  1. A thank you note

If you’ve been seeing a doctor for a long time now make sure to send a thank you note. It’s a courtesy that tons of people don’t take advantage of. Thank you notes have been overlooked in recent years, and I’m positive that your doctor will appreciate it.

  1. A letter

A nice heartfelt letter to your doctor would be more than appropriate especially if you have been with the same doctor for quite some time. Also, if you went through any traumatic disease, or had a really bad injury where you were constantly seeing the same doctor. Writing a letter expressing how much you appreciate them helping you through this stressful time in your life.

  1. A gift

Some sort of small token of appreciation would show our doctor that you really care that they are there for you. Something small such as a gift card, a bouquet of flowers, or something you know about them personally like a round of golf. There’s no need to get your doctor anything huge, they don’t practice medicine for the gifts they do it to help patients.

Now that you know how to properly thank your doctor, make sure to make an appointment with Open MRI of Pueblo. We have the best radiologists, an ACR accredited facility, and the lowest prices in the area. Call to make an appointment for an MRI today at (719) 404-0991.
