Monterey Spine & Joint MRI was developed to offer our community a high-value option for MRI imaging. We combine excellent quality imaging with lower cost to create an MRI center that appeals equally to patients and referring physicians in the region. We work with only the best specialty trained radiologists who read our scans. Our goal at Monterey Spine & Joint MRI is to make you comfortable during your MRI. Taylor Ahlborg, our MRI technologist, was hired specifically because of his excellent training and his emphasis on customer service. He will help you through the process making you feel comfortable and relaxed. Monterey Spine & Joint specifically purchased a state of the art MRI machine with a larger bore (this means more space around you) to help reduce patient anxiety and improve comfort. Unlike open MRI’s that have some degradation in the image quality, the large bore model combines the best of both worlds; more comfort with an excellent image.
