For Immediate Release
July 24, 2017

Tampa, Florida: Tower Radiology Centers, the largest outpatient radiology practice in Tampa Bay, is proud to announce the addition of a New Dedicated Extremity Open MRI, the perfect fit for Musculoskeletal Imaging. This MRI unit is a leading performer in imaging of the knees, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists and hands to diagnose illnesses or injuries in the muscles, bones and joints of an extremity. It offers a complete range of high quality imaging capabilities while providing an optimal patient experience thanks to its unique ergonomics and open design. During the exam, the patient is able to comfortably lie back and relax on an open couch while placing only their arm or leg into the MRI opening, allowing claustrophobic patients to feel at ease. This New Dedicated Extremity Open MRI will be available at Tower Radiology Center – Habana located at 4719 North Habana Avenue in Tampa.

“We’re excited to offer our providers and their patients this incredible new service option. It will allow us to raise the bar on comfort and convenience for patients while providing outstanding orthopedic image quality.
