MRI Designed With Patient Comfort In Mind
It's shorter in length, more open in design and faster at scanning than traditional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. The Infinion 1.5T MRI system at Titusville Area Hospital makes having an MRI an easier, more comfortable experience.
The system is installed permanently near the Emergency Room in the Imaging Department.
This new MRI features the shortest-bore whole-body magnet available today. Other open systems can be up to seven and a half feet long, but the magnet in the Infinion 1.5T is less than four and half feet long. This makes scanning more comfortable for patients without any compromise in imaging quality.
The MRI is the Hospital's first permanent magnetic resonance imaging system. For more than a decade, MRI imaging was offered through a mobile service. At the time, utilizing mobile MRI capabilities enabled the Hospital to provide the latest in patient diagnostics by sharing the expense with other hospitals. Today, as the technology has advanced and as community need has grown, the value of a permanent system became more evident.
Having the system on-site gives both patients and physicians greater access to MRI scanning with more convenient scheduling of exams. MRI scanning is used to detect a variety of medical conditions, including a range of neurological and orthopedic problems.
