New MRI Unit Arrives at Memorial Healthcare

November 15, 2016

Memorial Healthcare is thrilled to introduce a new MRI unit to its services.

MRIs are a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. Compared to the typical X-ray, MRIs provide different information about structures in the body. It’s a critical tool in diagnosis, and by updating our unit we can continue to provide effective treatment.

The Optima MR450w’s addition to our repertoire means Memorial Healthcare isn’t solely providing state-of-the-art technology to its patients, but also the best user-friendly experience.

This new systems delivers uncompromised imaging capability for the most advanced and demanding exams. Its soft, flexible GEM Suite coils follow body contours while facilitating high resolution, signal-tonoise (SNR) imaging from the top of the head down to the feet. Plus, Advanced functionality provides the tools that effectively assist in rendering a definitive diagnoses.

The system is also designed to maximize patient comfort. It’s designed specifically to put the patient at ease, even down to its lighting functionality. Its 70 cm wide bore provides added comfort and accommodates a larger range of patients. Its effective lighting systems also quell claustrophobia concerns a patient may have.

Memorial Healthcare now also has two scanners, which diminishes wait time and enables improved scheduling.

This MRI system allows Memorial Healthcare to better serve a wider array of patients. All physician referrals are accepted for MRI services. Schedule an appointment by calling 989.729.6422.
