The Most Comfortable

MRI Around

Our high-strength 1.5T magnet ensures uncompromised image quality.


Patient Benefits

We deliver a level of patient comfort that exceeds the expectations of a traditional MRI experience.

  • Only targeted anatomy is positioned in the MRI System

  • Reclining, comfortable, and padded chair

  • Exam preparation is faster and easier than a traditional MRI

  • Great alternative for claustrophobic patients (no full body tubes)

  • Excellent for children (parents are allowed in room during procedure)

  • Same high image quality as traditional MRIs


Physician Benefits

We provide our referring physicians with uncompromised quality while simultaneously allowing physicians to improve the experience of their patients.

  • The scanner's industry-leading gradients deliver 70mT/m of power and 300T/m/s of slew rate, while short echo spacing and high signal-to-noise ratio enable high resolution and sharp images.

  • Physicians can now request 1.5T quality acquisitions of the arm, including elbow, wrist and hand; or the leg, including knee, ankle and foot-and get the image quality and consistency they expect from a more powerful, conventional MR system.

  • Santa Barbara Extremity MRI also works with local radiologists and provides images through the same system most local physicians currently utilize.

Professional, comfortable, and efficient are just a few words I can use to describe SB Extremity MRI. I have had a few MRI’s before and this one was by the far the easiest and most comfortable.
