Lowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine

High Patient Satisfaction Marks for the Upgraded MRI Ortho SuiteLowcountry Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is committed to keeping pace with the latest orthopaedic diagnostic and treatment innovations. Our newly updated MRI Ortho Suite features an inviting environment and highly skilled staff that work directly with your orthopaedic and pain management specialists to properly pinpoint the cause of your discomfort and map out your surgery if required. “We renovated the MRI area with the patient in mind,” shares Becky Seals, Clinical Imaging Director. “The floors and entire room reflect a calming environment.” At the center of the newly renovated MRI suite is the newly upgraded, 70 cm wide bore MRI technology. “Most exciting, our new MRI now has orthopaedic specific coils, a type of antennae that provides high quality image resolution that is tailored to orthopaedic protocols. For example, it is excellent for hand and foot scans that need detail for diagnosis due to the many tiny bones in that region of the body,” explains Seals. Lowcountry Orthopaedics’ MRI Ortho Suite is a comprehensive collection of coils for joint imaging including the spine. For our specialists, this translates to ultra high-density coils for musculoskeletal imaging to improve anatomic coverage for the knee, hip and shoulder. For our patients, the upgrade means the following: High resolution Comfortable, large bore (70 cm or 2.3 feet wide) to alleviate claustrophobia Shorter scan times Quieter exams Short bore (4 ft.) further alleviates claustrophobia Soothing music of your choice Big and tall patients accommodated comfortably Orthopaedic specific technology for better diagnosis and surgical mapping “We’ll take care of you,” says Seals. This simple sentiment is the driver for the innovative MRI upgrade and renovation of the Summerville-based MRI Ortho Suite. To make an appointment, please call 843-797-5050, share your preference with your physician or request an appointment online at www.lowcountryortho.com. ... See MoreSee Less
