Ground Broken for First Open MRI in Finger Lakes

Beginning this fall, patients who need an MRI, but can't handle being transported through a narrow tube, will have another option. Finger Lakes Bone and Joint Center has broken ground on the first open MRI facility in the Finger Lakes. Doctor Dan Alexander says about 20 to 30 percent of MRI patients are claustrophobic, or simply don't like being inside a closed tube.

Alexander says having the MRI machine at his office also means quicker care for patients.

Finger Lakes Bone and Joint also has offices in Newark.
