Diagnostic Imaging Purchases New Open Bore MRI
The equipment, manufactured by Siemens, delivers the open bore product with a 1.5 Tesla magnet, something that no other imaging center in the Memphis region offers. The $1.8 million Siemens Magnetom Espree gives a powerful scan while accommodating patients of all sizes.
Other benefits include a more comfortable service for patients who get anxious or claustrophobic during an MRI. For virtually all exams, a patient's feet go in first and the head remains outside of the slim magnet. When a head-first exam is necessary, comfort remains a priority with an open view and at least one foot of general headroom space above the nose.
Diagnostic Imaging is also relocating its offices to the PennMarc Centre at 6401 Poplar.
