Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive radiology imaging exam that aids physicians in diagnosing and treating medical conditions. MRI uses a powerful magnet, pulsed radio frequency waves and specialized computer software to produce detailed images of internal organs, soft tissues and bone. CVPH offers a comprehensive scope of MRI exams including neuro, vascular (MRA/MRV), musculoskeletal and body imaging. Additionally, CVPH Valcour Imaging also offers MRI breast imaging.

CVPH offers multiple MRI options and 3 locations throughout Plattsburgh. These options include high definition, wide bore, open-ended MRI units with state-of-the-art advanced imaging technology for all types of patients including pediatric, claustrophobic and large individuals.


Both CVPH Radiology main campus and CVPH Valcour Imaging offer the latest wide bore, short tunnel, open ended, high field GE 1.5 Tesla units that produce high quality images with reduced acquisition time. These MRI units have a large, 70 cm patient bore which creates a comfortable patient experience, especially for large individuals, children and those who experience claustrophobia.

At CVPH Open MRI, a high field, GE 1.5 Tesla open ended MRI magnet and a low field, Hitachi 0.3 Tesla open MRI unit are available options for our patients to provide the highest quality imaging with the greatest patient comfort possible. The Hitachi 0.3T open MRI unit has limited applications. Please call CVPH Open MRI at (518) 562-3650 if you have any questions.
