What does this mean for me?

A stronger MRI has the capability of producing images with greater clarity and detail.

What does this mean for me?

A faster MRI and reduction in scan time means less time in the MRI machine. This means less discomfort and quicker exam experience for you. 

Faster?

Some MRI exams will take a mere 10-15 minutes compared to almost double that with other machines.
