*Lake Regional Imaging Center offers an open-bore MRI system. The open design accommodates patients of all ages and sizes, including seniors, children and large patients. It also reduces feelings of anxiety and claustrophobia. For many exams, the patient's feet go in first. This feature means that 60 percent of exams are performed with the patient's head outside the chamber.
