Dramatically Quieter MRI
Silent Scan, a revolutionary technology that dramatically quiets magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams, is now available at Wheaton Franciscan - Elmbrook Memorial, and the Midwest Spine and Orthopedic Hospital/Wisconsin Heart Hospital Campus.
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.

Interventional Radiology is a field of medicine that provides minimally invasive, image-guided procedures using the latest technology to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system.
Using technologies such as ultrasound, CT and MRI, interventional radiologists use real-time images to direct instruments throughout the body. Rather than making large incisions into the body as in traditional surgery, they can use needles and catheter tubes to treat a variety of conditions, including peripheral artery disease, varicose veins, diseases of the lymphatic system, aneurysms and acute stroke therapy. Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by interventional techniques.
For more information on Interventional Radiology, please call 1-844-MRL-RADS (1-844-675-7237).
Our radiology locations are accredited by The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories (ICANL) for Nuclear Medicine and the American College of Radiology (ACR) for CT, Ultrasound and MRI, and are designated ACR Breast Centers of Excellence. All nuclear medicine technologists are board certified by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) or American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
