What is the meaning of 1.5 Tesla?
The magnet field produced by the magnet in a 1.5T MRI machine is 15,000 gauss, meaning the magnet in a 1.5T scanner is 30,000 times stronger than that produced by the Earth. The scanner uses this strength to align the hydrogen nuclei and produce the images for a MRI exam.

Why is 1.5T better than 3T?
We are often asked what the difference is between a 1.5T scanner and a 3T. The answer is that a 3T scanner is twice the strength of a 1.5T scanner.
What is a 3T machine?
What is a 3T MRI? Traditional MRI machines operate at a strength of 1.5T, or Teslas. A tesla is the unit of measurement quantifying the strength of a magnetic field. A 3T MRI generates a magnetic field that is twice as strong as a normal MRI, and 10 to 15 times as strong as open MRI scanners.
