New MRI - Patient Brochure


MCCONNELLSBURG, PA. June 10, 2014-- (LOCAL MEDIA) FCMC is happy to announce that their newest diagnostic equipment, a wide bore MRI is fully operational. FCMC scanned their first patient in the new GE Optima MR450w MRI on May 22. This new MRI comes with a 70 cm bore, offering a more comfortable experience for patients — especially larger individuals, children, and those prone to claustrophobia. This next-generation MRI helps reduce exam time and the improved patient comfort features result in a cooler, quieter experience while delivering both uncompromised image quality and high productivity. The Optima MR450w accessibility, cost and capabilities make it a great fit for FCMC. The 1.5 Tesla field strength is the industry's best-known and most-widely used. It's bore diameter and field of view make MR scans accessible to more patients who need them. "The Optima MR450w is the right MRI system in so many ways for us.” states Jason Goshorn Director of Diagnostic Services. "Not only is it more advanced, it's more customer friendly and cost effective.” The MRI suite has also been redesigned to include scenic lighted ceiling panels as well as a spacious outer window which provides a warm and welcoming environment for all patients. 

With a mere five weeks of downtime to replace the previous MRI scanner, the new MRI was replaced and ready to use thanks to the great coordination by the facility staff and local contractors. For more information on the new Optima MR450w please download the patient brochure above.
