MRI exams can be scheduled throughout the week and on Saturday at our facility at 6 Tsienneto Road in Derry, New Hampshire.
What is Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced diagnostic procedure that can make very detailed images of internal bodily structures without the use of X-rays or any other form of radiation. MR images are produced through the use of a large and powerful magnet, radio waves and a computer. From high-resolution extremity imaging, breast imaging, head and spine imaging, to our small extremity coil—we’ve got you covered.
We have an open MRI available. The Siemens Espree mobile Open MRI is available every Thursday. The Espree magnet offers an oversized bore to accommodate the claustrophobic or high weight-limit patients up to 550 lbs. It features an opening of nearly 2.3 feet in diameter, and a foot of free space above one’s head, for your comfort and less stress. The mobile van is also equipped with multiple eight-channel coils allowing for high resolution.

What is Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)?
Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) is an exciting field that uses MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) technology to do more than picture the static structures of the body. MRA goes a step further, adding sophisticated software and data-acquisition techniques to the MRI scanner in order to produce highly detailed images of blood vessels.
It is important that you contact the MRI Scheduler prior to your exam for specific information about your exam at 603-537-1378.
How do I prepare for my exam?
- Very little preparation is required. You may eat, drink and take your regular medications
- Tell the technologist if you are, or suspect that you might be pregnant.
- If you have ever been a metal worker, you may be required to have specie x-rays before your exam to make sure there are no metal fragments in your eyes.
- Because of the potential harmful effects associated with metallic objects in a magnetic field, you should tell the technologist performing your exam if you have had any surgeries, or if you have a pacemaker, aneurysm clips, metal in your eyes, metal implants in your ears, an implanted drug infusion device, shrapnel or bullet wounds, or permanent eyeliner.
