Advanced MRI

Improved image quality. Minimal scan times. Maximum comfort.

Firelands Regional Health System is excited to announce the installation of new scanning technology that combines the advancements in MR (magnetic resonance) with the sophisticated engineering of a 3.0T wide bore system. This new scanner provides a whole new level of patient comfort with adaptable coil designs and acceleration techniques that minimize scan times and improve image quality. This is just another example of Firelands' commitment to providing our patients with the latest in diagnostic imaging technology. The 3.0T MRI will be the first of its kind in our region.

Our patients and physicians spoke, and we listened. The traditional MRI experience is noisy and generally comes with an unpleasant stigma. The SIGNA™ Architect provides a wider bore and is significantly quieter. Also, patients scheduled with new MRI will experience our new caring suite. Included are customizable LED panels where a patient can select the color of their choice. Patients will also be able to select a calming scene on the 4K monitor. Lastly, the audio system gives each patient the opportunity to select their favorite music. This is a revolutionary way to experience MRI and patients will not have to go far from home to get a premium experience.

This new scanner, the SIGNA™ Architect, is an incredibly versatile and adaptable system available from GE Healthcare. Built with patients in mind, the SIGNA™ Architect is redefining the imaging experience with feet-first comfort options and scan capabilities that continue to push the conventional limits of MR. Equipped with the SIGNA™Works productivity platform, SIGNA™ Architect dramatically improves clinical performance levels through innovative applications that visualize the body like never before.
