For added patient convenience and comfort, Dr Halbrecht has an MRI in the office. The O-Scan is an open extremity MRI scanner that can scan injured joints. This MRI has the capabilities to scan knees, ankles, wrists, hands and elbows.

No need to go “in the tube” with this machine. Breakthrough technology allows patients to relax in a comfortable padded lounge chair while being scanned, and avoid the confined space required by traditional MRI machines.

Scans are sent electronically by teleradiology to expert musculoskeletal radiologists and read and interpreted within four hours. Patients are given a CD with their scan results immediately, and typed reports are available to treating physicians by fax within 24-48 hours.

We have easy availability of appointments. We work with insurance and also offer low cost MRI’s to cash patients.

To schedule an appointment: please call (415) 923-0944

“ Six months ago, after my last surgery with the other surgeon failed, I got in to see Dr. Halbrecht right away, and was able to schedule surgery the following week! My shoulder is soooo much better now! I feel like my nightmare is over. ”
