At Sharp and Children's MRI Center we are Committed to Providing You the Highest Level of Care
Sharp and Children's MRI Center, LLC (scMRI) was founded in 1986 by Sharp Memorial Hospital and Rady Children's Hospital and San Diego Imaging Medical Group (SDI) to provide comprehensive diagnostic imaging for children and adults. The MRI Center is dedicated to providing the highest levels of service to our patients in a relaxed, caring, and supportive environment. We are one of the few diagnostic imaging centers in the San Diego area to offer the comfort of anesthesia for both infants and children. And, unlike open or standing MRI devices, our conventional imaging technology provides first-time high quality image results.
Our Highly Accomplished and Caring Staff
Over the years, Sharp and Children's MRI Center has formed a strong and loyal physician referral base. Physicians rely on us for flexible scheduling, high quality imaging, and rapid diagnostic response by our specialty radiologists. Our staff of nationally recognized, board certified radiologists give you and your physician the confidence that only highly-trained medical professionals are reviewing the results of your exam.
From our caring and competent staff to our warm and inviting setting, the primary concern of our staff is always patient comfort and convenience. SCMRI is currently the only Center in San Diego to offer evening, weekend, and same-day appointments. For patients requiring prior insurance authorization, our knowledgeable and friendly staff will see to it that all processing requirements are met prior to your exam.
Sharp & Children's MRI Center is an accredited facility by the American College of Radiology.
Accreditation is only awarded to those facilities that meet or exceed the quality and safety standards of the American College of Radiology. Patients and physicians are encouraged by the ACR to seek out facilities that have achieved this distinction.
