Cortland Regional Medical Center continues to expand its clinical services
with the installation of its new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine.
This machine is located at the main hospital, replacing the West Road
Purchased from Siemens®, the 1.5T MAGNETOM Aera performs one of the
highest quality MRI exams available today. Its ultra- short, 70 cm open-bore
design offers a more spacious, less claustrophobic feeling and easier
access for patients with limited mobility. Additionally, the decreased
noise and increased comfort means sharper images due to less-anxiety related movement.
“This new MRI enables us to offer our patients a faster, less stressful
exam while giving their healthcare provider the highest quality images
in a shorter time,” said Debbie King, Director of Imaging Services
at Cortland Regional, “Having this service at the hospital offers
our entire healthcare community access to cutting edge technology for
even greater patient care.”
This new machine will allow physicians to perform extensive scans ranging
from breast imaging and MRI-guided breast biopsies to neurological, orthopedic
scans and more.
