Offering the Latest MRI Technology

With a feeling of openness combined with the ability to scan feet first, comfortable Tempur-Pedic pads and shorter scan times, patients are now able to have a more comfortable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) experience with 3T MRI, the latest in MRI technology.

In addition to increased patient comfort, 3T MRI uses a magnetic field stronger than any other MRI technology, producing exceptional detail that allows us to scan for orthopedic disorders and conditions that were not previously able to be seen, including bone bruises and spinal conditions.

To schedule a 3T MRI, call 414-527-5000.

Silent Scan MRI
Silent Scan, a revolutionary technology that dramatically quiets magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams, is now available at Wheaton Franciscan - Franklin Hospital Campus in Franklin and the Elmbrook Memorial Campus in Brookfield.

Conventional MRI scanners can generate noise in excess of 110 decibels, roughly equivalent to rock concerts and requiring ear protection. GE’s exclusive Silent Scan technology is designed to reduce MR scanner noise to ambient (background) sound levels and improve a patient’s MRI exam experience. With Silent Scan, patients and families will be able to experience a more relaxing scanning environment, even being able to converse during the scan.

To schedule a Silent Scan MRI, call 414-527-5000.

  • Arthrography

    Arthrography is a type of imaging test used to look at a joint, such as the shoulder, knee, or hip. It may be done if standard X-rays do not show the needed details of the joint structure and function.

  • Bone Density Test

    A bone density test is used to measure the bone mineral content and density. It may be done using X-rays, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA), or a special CT scan that uses computer software to determine bone density of the hip or spine.

  • Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan of the Bones

    Computed tomography is an imaging test that uses X-rays and a computer to make detailed images of the body. A CT scan shows details of the bones, muscles, fat, and organs.
