Open MRI scanners have been developed for people who are anxious or obese or for examination of small parts of the body, such as the extremities (knee, shoulder). In addition, some systems offer imaging in different positions and sequences of movements. The basic technology of an open MRI machine is similar to that of a traditional MRI device. The major difference for the patient is that instead of lying in a narrow tunnel, the imaging table has more space around the body so that the magnet does not completely surround the person being tested.

An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan is a form of soft-tissue testing that came to the forefront of diagnostic medicine in the early 1980s. An MRI, unlike an x-ray or CT scan, emits no radiation. Instead, an MRI uses magnetic radiowaves—10 to 30 thousand times stronger than that of the magnetic force of the earth. There are varying types of MRI scans, each one playing an important role in the diagnoses of illness.
