MRI of Reston first began serving the community in 1987. Our office initially held one (1) MRI scanner and now, nearly 30 years later, we have four (4) MRI scanners at our facility. Our growth is a testament of the consistent, superior quality we deliver as the largest, non-hospital owned, dedicated MRI center in northern Virginia.
As the years have passed, we are proud to have maintained the focus of our original mission: It is our commitment to deliver Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC Metropolitan area superior MRI imaging with the highest quality of individualized care.

MRI of Reston has partnered with Reston Radiology Consultants.
The Radiologists of Reston Radiology Consultants are a diverse group of board certified and fellowship trained physicians dedicated to providing superior interpretations and complete scanning protocol. In addition to being certified by the American Board of Radiology, the physicians of Reston Radiology Consultants have completed an intense fellowship in their sub-specialty field such as Body Imaging, Musculoskeletal Radiology, Neuroradiology, Pediatric Radiology, or Women’s Imaging.
What an MRI Technologist does?
An MRI Technologist is a highly trained individual who plays a vital role in your scan. The Technologist screens you to ensure that there are no conditions to prevent performance of the MRI magnet. Next, they set up the table, ear protection, and appropriate coil positioning specific to your scan type. Once positioned correctly, the Tech places you in the start position and leaves the room to begin setting up the specific sequences based on the American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria. The Tech is responsible for your comfort before and during the scanning to attempt to minimize motion, which will distort your images. They speak with you between sequences to make sure you are doing well or to find out if you need anything. Upon completion of the exam, they will take you out of the machine and remove the coil to walk you back to get changed. The Technologist may give you a CD with your images to take with you to your provider, or you can access your images through your patient portal. Lastly, the technologist will send all images to the Radiologist so they can make a diagnosis based on the MRI findings. As the final step in our protocol, your referring provider will receive the diagnostic findings, and images if they have previously requested secure access to your images.
What does a Radiologist do?
At MRI of Reston, our Radiologists are board certified and spend an additional year of training in a Fellowship program in one of three MRI subspecialties: Neuroradiology, Musculoskeletal (MSK), or Body imaging. The appropriate Radiologist will review each sequence of images using their vast knowledge and experience to identify any findings that are visualized. If prior imaging is available, the radiologist will compare the current study to the prior scan. The Radiologist dictates a report for each scan performed which is then faxed or electronically sent to your ordering provider. Recommendations are also made on reports for any additional imaging that may be needed for appropriate follow-up. The Radiologists are available to speak with your ordering provider to discuss cases should advice be needed following your scan.
