Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI-ImageAt Geary Community Hospital we are fortunate, in partnership with the Geary Community Healthcare Foundation, to have recently upgraded our MRI technology with a new Toshiba Vantage Titan 1.5T, 32-channel MRI.

Besides the outstanding image quality produced by this latest technology, the Titan MRI has many features that will improve your comfort during an exam.

The first thing that you will notice is that the MRI is now located inside the radiology department. The new MRI suite offers a warm, inviting decor with a “springtime” skylight feature. When you go in for your exam you will find the Titan system has an ultra-short, ultra-wide, open bore. This provides you with plenty of shoulder room, more breathing room, and a less claustrophobic feeling.

Utilizing Toshiba’s Pianissimo™ Noise-Reduction Technology, the Titan is quieter than other MRIs. An integrated stereo system allows you to comfortably listen to your favorite music during your exam. Other comfort features include adjustable ventilation, lighting and airflow. In addition, the table lowers to less than 17 inches, which allows greater access to the young and elderly.
