DI Staff with CT Scanner-cropped-2MYRTUE MEDICAL CENTER UPDATES CT SYSTEM AND MOBILE MRI EQUIPMENT WHICH ALLOWS FOR FASTER, SAFER PATIENT EXAMS

Myrtue Medical Center has recently installed a new CT scanning system. Updating this equipment improves patient safety by reducing radiation exposure to the patient and provides features for more detailed tracking of total radiation dose. The new equipment produces high quality images used for diagnosis. The speed of the CT system reduces exam times, improving patient satisfaction. The machine’s large opening offers a more spacious feeling for our patients and the updated equipment will accommodate future CT imaging needs.

In addition to the CT system installation, the Mobile MRI equipment will be upgraded this month. The new system provides increased resolution which means the best detailed images. Patients will also experience a shorter exam time, which increases patient comfort. Service days for the Mobile MRI will now be Sunday, Tuesday, and Friday each week.

“Updating the equipment in our Imaging department will allow us to enhance the image quality and shorten exam times for our patients. We will also be able to limit the amount of radiation to the minimum necessary. This is another example of our commitment to provide advanced technology designed to perform fast, low-dose radiation exams that are safer and more comfortable for our patients in the communities we serve,” said Keri Sonderman, Director of Diagnostic Imaging at Myrtue Medical Center.
