3-Tesla Scanner

Thinner slices. Clearer images. A better exam is invaluable.


The 3-Tesla is considered a global innovation in magnetic resonance imaging. It offers two to three times the signal of ordinary 1 and 1.5-Tesla scanners. The result is much higher image quality, thinner slices and increased resolution. And besides offering better quality, the exam takes less time!

The 3-Tesla is renowned throughout the medical industry for yielding images that are significantly superior to those from 1 and 1.5-Tesla scanners for examinations of the knee, shoulder, ankle, wrist, elbow, spine and brain, among other parts of the body.

The 3-Tesla at IRM Moncton MRI also means a faster exam as well as a larger (diameter 70 cm) tunnel for enhanced comfort, especially for the elderly or those suffering from obesity or claustrophobia. IRM Moncton MRI is the first clinic (public or private) in Atlantic Canada to offer this next-generation technology. IRM Moncton MRI is consequently the only clinic in Atlantic Canada offering you access to the major medical advances associated with the 3-Tesla.

In addition to serving the clinical needs of doctors and their patients, the 3-Tesla positions IRM Moncton MRI at the leading edge of research as we also offer our services to neurology research teams.

The medical staff at IRM Moncton MRI  are pleased to be able to offer you the very best in magnetic resonance imaging .
