MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging

3T MRI Bristol Connecticut

The Bristol Radiology Center is pleased to announce the installation and operation of a new state of the art open configuration 3T MRI.

Our new GE Pioneer 3T MRI offers the highest field strength available for clinical use. The higher field strength results in superb image quality and allows us to expand the scope of MRI examinations available at the Bristol Radiology Center. This includes breast MRI, neurovascular and peripheral vascular MRI, prostate MRI without an endorectal coil, additional musculoskeletal applications, as well as abdominal and pelvic MR imaging.

The wide bore configuration as well as new MRI technology allows for faster and quieter examinations and increases patient comfort.


MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a painless noninvasive test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Detailed MR images allow physicians to better evaluate body parts of the body and disease that may not be assessed with other imaging methods.

MRI uses powerful magnetic field and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissue, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. The images are then examined on a computer. MRI does not use ionizing radiation.

Common Uses:

  • Organs including the heart, lungs, liver, biliary tract, kidney, spleen, and pancreas.
  • Pelvic organs including the reproductive organs in the male (prostate and testicles) and the female (uterus and ovaries).
  • Pelvic and hip bones.
  • Blood vessels (MR Angiography).

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging MR
  • X- Ray with Catheters

In MRA a powerful magnetic field and a computer produce the detailed images. MRA does not use ionizing radiation. MRA may be performed with or without contrast material.

Common Uses:

  • brain
  • kidneys
