Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
It’s clear—precision is important during diagnosis. Of all imaging technologies, MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging gives doctors the clearest, most precise image of the inside of the body. It’s sophisticated, and uses a strong magnetic field to show the structure and detail of organs, soft tissue and bones, which can pinpoint all types of issues from abnormalities to disease. Alta Vista Regional Hospital performs MRIs with your comfort in mind. Nervous about your test? Just speak to one of our staff.
AltaVista Regional Hospital adds new Philips Ingenia 1.5T S MR system.
Has your doctor ever recommended that you get an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) exam? Or are you simply curious about this safe imaging test?
There’s no better place to schedule an MRI exam than Alta Vista Regional Hospital. That’s because we’re the only facility in the region with the Philips Ingenia 1.5T S, the first-ever digital broadband MR scanner with a truly unique patient experience.
The Ingenia 1.5T S, with its 70 cm bore, is more open and less confining than 60 cm MR systems. This new MR system is not only minimally invasive, it’s minimally intimidating.
The open system also allows us to image patients of varying size, age, and physical condition, which means you can potentially send more of your patients for noninvasive MRIs than you may have considered before.
It’s fast. Thw Ingenia 1.5T S can scan patients of varying size, age, and medical condition in less time than previous MR systems on the market. Routine exams of the brain, spine, knee, ankle, and liver are quick and easy. And even more complex scans may only last 15 to 40 minutes.
It’s comfortable. The revolutionary new Philips Ingenia 1.5T S has a wide-bore opening designed to make you feel less confined. In fact, most scans can be done with your head completely out of the system.
It’s reliable. The Philips Ingenia 1.5T S delivers the revealing images your doctor needs to help diagnose your medical condition correctly. This makes it easier for your doctor to identify and pinpoint any potential problems and helps reduce the number of repeat exams.
The right choice for imaging. Philips Ingenia 1.5T S is one more reason to ask your doctor about scheduling your next diagnostic imaging exam at Alta Vista Regional Hospital.
