1.5T MRI

1.5T is considered state-of-the-art in medical imaging.
Today, the standard for MRI in a clinical setting is a 1.5T MRI.  A 1.5T machine is faster than lower strength MRIs and is ideal for abdomens and chest MRIs (where patients are asked to hold their breath for the MRI sequence). Where there is more signal with a 1.5T magnet than a 1.2T magnet, there are great options as to what can be done with the extra signal – you can run shorter scan times (reduces possible motion) and have higher quality images.
