SJEH Cuts Ribbon On State Of Art MRI
St. John’s Episcopal Hospital’s administrators and staff, and local officials cut the ribbon on a new state-of-the-art open MRI machine on June 27. Nelson Toebbe, the hospital’s CEO, called the new machine “an important milestone in our work to upgrade our imaging department and our diagnostic consultative services that supports the entire hospital.” Chief medical officer Dr. Raymond Pastore called it “a wonderful thing for the community.”
The Toshiba 1.5T Vantage Titan MRI System is practically noiseless.
It has one of the widest bores so a patient can fit without feeling claustrophobic, and is designed to capture higher quality resolution images.
