ECU Physicians offers a state-of-the-art open Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner with a wide opening that offers patients a more comfortable, less-confined experience.

Our friendly, courteous and experienced staff make the patient experience easy and convenient through our flexible scheduling options and streamlined referral process. Scan times are short and provide detailed, high-quality images that can be viewed in our electronic health record system, EPIC. We also provide STAT reports for those instances when it is necessary to act quickly on the results.

We offer MRI of the brain, cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, shoulders, knees, and ankles, as well as Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) of the arteries in the head and neck.
