For Clinicians
Introducing Longwood MRI Specialists

MRILongwood MRI Specialists is a state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging facility located at the intersection of Washington and Beacon Streets in Brookline.

We provide the convenience of same-day service and flexible hours to meet the needs of our patients and physicians. We have plenty of free parking on site and are located just steps from the Green Line.

Our center features the new Siemens Avanto system, an ultra-short, wide bore, 1.5 Tesla eight-channel magnet that offers the most comfortable MR experience and the highest quality images possible -- extra fast scanning and specialized clinical capabilities in a virtually claustrophobia-free setting. The high-powered gradient package provides superb resolution and enables advanced imaging functions such as bolus-tracking MR angiography, complete stroke assessment, and full-body scanning.

Images are immediately available on film, on CD, or on-line at, and reports with key images are faxed to the physician within 24 hours. Most important, all scans are interpreted by a member of our team of “super-specialized” Harvard-trained radiologists who are leaders in their field, with decades of experience behind them.

ReceptionBut the real heart of Longwood MRI is our staff. We know that a medical test can be an intimidating experience. Our goal is to make the patient’s stay in our facility as pleasant as possible. From the warm smile of our receptionist who offers coffee, cappuccino, and other drinks in our cozy waiting room; to the friendly technologists who expertly obtain images from the fastest, quietest and most open high-field MRI system available; to the radiologists who are on-site to answer any and all questions -- we are devoted to the comfort and well-being of our patients. At Longwood MRI our goal is to provide academic radiology in the comfort of a private practice setting.

We are dedicated to providing the high quality work that you require, with the promptness you deserve. We are looking forward to serving your needs, and we thank you in advance for your patronage.
