DOI has 4 state of the art MRIs at two locations, all of which are American College of Radiology (ACR) Certified.
Open MRI (0.35 Tesla): This MRI perfect for claustrophobic. There is no table weight limit on this MRI
High Field 1.5 Tesla MRI- This is an eight channel MRI with high-end image quality. It is in a beautiful room and has ‘pianissimo’ technology, which makes the MRI relatively quiet. This machine has been the best MRI in private practice in El Paso for years.
High Field 3.0 Tesla MRI- This is the only 3.0 Tesla MRI in private practice in El Paso. This technology can deliver stunning image quality, which can actually make a difference in your diagnosis.
The increased magnet strength gives us many benefits at no additional expense to the patient. It gives us the ability to scan faster, or to scan with higher detail. This is welcome news for nervous or claustrophobic patients, and as well as for children as it can actually eliminate the need for sedation in some patients. 3T is faster, clearer, more diagnostic for a better for MRI. It is like HD TV. Once you have tried it, you won’t want to go back. This MRI effectively doubles our MRI capacity.
DOI began Breast MRI in July 2007, being the first facility in El Paso to perform the exam. We have now performed over 2500 breast MRI’s and many MRI-guided breast biopsies. All have been interpereted and/or performed by Dr. Boushka, making him the most experienced radiologist in the city with this exam. This is the most powerful tool for the detection of Breast cancer to date.
Guys, you need great medical care also. We are the only facility in El Paso performing this leading edge exam. MRI can see cancers when other imaging methods cannot. Not only can we see prostate cancers with MRI, we can perform MRI-guided prostate biopsies for pathologic (definitive) diagnosis.
We put children at the beginning of the day’s schedule and ask that they arrive tired. Sedation is available for children under 40 lbs.
