Steamboat Orthopaedic & Spine Institute - Craig, CO
MRI Imaging Center - Steamboat Surgery Center
There is no special prep for any MRI exam except to hold still for about 35 minutes. There is an MRI safety screening sheet that needs to be filled out for each exam prior to scanning. You may take any pain relief medication prior to MRI to help with pain. You may need to remove certain metal if it is in the scan field and you will have a place to lock up valuables during your exam. We have certified technologists performing your MRI exam and Board Certified American College of Radiology Radiologists interpreting your exam with a specialty in Musculoskeletal Imaging. Your ordering physician will be discussing the results with you.
The Steamboat Orthopaedic & Spine Institute comprises a dedicated, local, and highly-trained staff of ten physicians and dozens of medical care and support staff, bringing world-class medicine to northwest Colorado, southern Wyoming, and the surrounding region. Alongside the team of specialists, SOSI also has a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist and a physiatrist who specializes in the evaluation of spinal and musculoskeletal disorders, non-operative spine care, including epidural injections, and EMG and global orthopaedic assessments.
