On June 30th, 2020, we will scan our first patient on a brand new 1.5T open MRI machine. This new MRI machine is one of few in the region that offers this level of detail and clarity, along with the largest field of view to create the most comfortable patient experience.
The state-of-the-art 1.5T GE Voyager is a 70 cm open MRI, and is considered to be the gold standard for imaging. The machine comes fully equipped with new, innovative features including:
-MAVRIC software that allows imaging for patients with implants with no reduction in image quality. As more patients are receiving joint replacements, this is a terrific solution to improve medical care that they need.
-A wider and more comfortable table design that sits lower to the ground, allowing for feet-first or head-first imaging. This features memory foam surfacing, is easier access for patient positioning and accommodates up to 550 lbs.
-The open 70cm of headroom is the most comfortable patient experience without compromising imaging quality. 1.5T imaging is preferred by radiologists.
If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of having this new machine at our Portsmouth, NH location, please let us know.
