How do you find a higher grade MRI?

Does anyone know of a way to find a facility that has one of the more powerful MRI machines without making lots of phone calls?

I'm in Canada, but I googled 3Telsa MRI machine and found the hospitals that had the machines here. Hope that helps.

I downloaded the list of approved radiology centers in my insurance plan and area.  I eliminated all those that had "open" in the name because they're the weakest.  Then I started trying to look all of them up on the web--if they said what their machine was, I could look up the model on the mfr's web site, if they didn't outright say its strength.

A member here suggested I contact the manufacturer (like Siemens or GE) and ask about where they have installed 3T units.  However, I lucked out by calling one of the survivors from my list--the tech told me theirs was a 1.5 T, but he also told me where a local 3T was.  So by the process of elimination, I got it down to one call!  Granted, luck was involved.

Have you looked into any Universities near you? I know UCLA has very good MRI imaging.

I found one in a hospital in Aventura, Florida.  It is by Elite Imaging.  You can call them about the exact location at (305) 692-2222 or on the internet at www.eliteimaging.net.    One is in Aventura Florida in the Mt. Sinai medical arts plaza on aventura blvd.
