It’s draft week in the NFL, and boy are we excited about it! Imagine our imaging center as a football team. It can be any time you want—the Bucs, the Broncos, the Patriots, the Cowboys…you name it! We want to know which imaging procedure you guys prefer, and we’re asking for your help so that we can fictitiously draft them onto our “team”! This week we’re talking about our first potential draft pick, and next week we’ll cover our second one.

Potential Draft Pick #1: MRI

Height: 7 ft.

Weight: 11 Tons

Pros:

Cheaper contract. Just like how Sam Bradford is costing the Eagles pretty much nothing, an MRI has a way cheaper contract than its rival, the CT. This can be a huge contributing factor when thinking about selecting them for your procedure (or for signing a QB onto a team!).

Reliable. Think of the MRI as the Peyton Manning of diagnostic imaging. It’s tried and true, it’s a little bit older than its counterpart the CT but you also know you can count on it.

Diverse set of skill types. When you’re drafting a player, you want someone who can do a bunch of different things. Can your QB scramble? Is he good outside of the pocket? How many play options do you have available to you when he’s out there on the field? One of the best things about the MRI machine is that there are so many different options. It can be open, it can be closed, it can be wide bore…it can be whatever you need it to be.

Cons:

Takes a little extra time to get the job done. We’ve all seen him, that quarterback that’s got you screaming “JUST THROW THE BALL!” at your television and pulling out your hair. Sometimes that’s what life is like with an MRI machine. They’ve got a lot going for them, but sometimes they just take a little more time to get the job done than you’d like.

Stay tuned to find out who our next potential draft is, and good luck with draft week! May the odds be in your team’s favor.
