What makes one MRI machine better than another?
« on: 29/07/2008 22:52:34 »
Hello--what makes one MRI machine better than another?  Or an MRI center better than another?  What should I be looking for as differences--or does it not matter to practitioners?

Mod edit - formatted the subject as a question.  Please try to do this to help keep the forum tidy and easy to navigate - thanks!

The higher the magnetic field strength, measured in Tesla, the higher its resolution (the sharper the picture).
