Zwanger-Pesiri is at the forefront of modern radiology technology once again with the first and only out-patient MRI/PET scanner in the USA. The new state-of-the-art technology by Siemens combines the simultaneous power of whole body Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) to more accurately detect, characterize, stage and treat oncological, neurological, and cardiovascular diseases. Also, MRI/PET significantly reduces radiation exposure, making it ideal for imaging certain pediatric conditions.

The combination of MRI and PET:

  • Eliminates CT radiation exposure compared to a PET/CT by about 100 chest X-rays.
  • Reduces the radioactive injection for PET by almost half, saving an additional 50 chest X-rays of radiation.
  • Combines multiple powerful MRI exams with the highest resolution PET scanner in the industry for a new level of care.
  • Increases diagnostic confidence.
