Now introducing Silent scan at our Silver Street practice.

Silent scan is a revolutionary neuro acquisition technique that makes MR scans as quiet as a whisper.

While a typical MR scan can reach sound levels over 100 decibels, Silent Scan is closer to the ambient noise in a quiet room. And better still, Silent Scan still provides the excellent image quality you need to make confident diagnoses.

We are also proud to introduce a new technology at our Randwick Silver Street practice: the Silent scan. The Silent scan is a revolutionary technique that allows the scans to occur almost without any sounds. Traditionally, MRI scans are known to produce sounds of up to 100 decibels. With this new technology, we are able to mask almost all the sounds, producing sound levels that are similar to the ambient sound found in a quiet room. What’s more, Silent scans allow the production of images of very high quality. This again helps better diagnosis. To Book call our MRI Centre in Sydney on 02 9399 5357
