Do you suffer from claustrophobia? According to the American Psychiatric Association, 5% of American adults suffer from claustrophobia. Many of these suffers struggle their whole lives coping with the fear of enclosed spaces. When it comes to medical imaging, some patients have been known to terminate their scans early due to high levels of anxiety, while others simply avoid their imaging needs all together. When it comes to feeling relaxed during your medical imaging, trust the experts at Park Avenue Radiologists. Our technicians take the time to understand you and create the most comfortable scans possible.
