Melbourne Radiology Clinic’s MRI scanner is the latest Siemens Espree MRI unit which has a wide bore that is 16% larger than conventional MRI units and is ideal for claustrophobic and large patients. Even non-claustrophobic patients, benefit from this technological advancement, as many people still experience some mild anxiety when scanned in a conventional smaller bore MRI unit.
