Open MRI

Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital Imaging Services provides open MRI services as a convenience for those patients who are unable to be scanned in our hospital system. The open magnet allows MRI imaging of those patients who are highly claustrophobic, patients whose physical size cannot be accommodated in the hospital scanner, and patients who have difficulty with a conventional MRI system.

Our 1.5 Tesla Siemens Espree Open MRI scanner is situated in a mobile trailer at the Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital Community Cancer Treatment Center and Juniata Valley Medical Center. These sites offer ample, free parking and pleasant facilities for patients and their families to prepare for the scan.

Our open MRI service is available every Saturday; beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the Community Cancer Treatment Center and Juniata Valley Medical Center every Monday and Thursday. Testing is done by appointment only.
