Rhode Island Medical Imaging Installs Its Third 3T MR Scanner at Pawtucket Site
Date:9/3/2014

Pawtucket, Rhode Island (PRWEB) September 03, 2014

Accessing Rhode Island Medical Imaging’s (RIMI) state-of-the-art imaging services will be more convenient than ever for residents of northern Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. Rhode Island Medical Imaging’s third 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system will be installed in the Blackstone Valley Medical Building at 333 School Street in Pawtucket on September 4, 2014.

The 3T MRI system, which has been available at RIMI’s East Greenwich and East Providence locations since the spring of 2011 and fall of 2013 respectively, captures images of the highest possible resolution and has features that provide additional patient comfort. These features, which are especially beneficial to patients who might experience anxiety during an MRI examination, include:

  •     a more spacious opening for optimal patient comfort, especially for claustrophobic patients
  •     shorter scanning times than compared to other MRI machines, especially “open” scanners
  •     a video entertainment system and a DVD library, with iPod, iPhone and MP3 compatibility
  •     the most extensive MRI hours available for patient convenience

In addition to being the first and only Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence in Rhode Island, RIMI is the only medical imaging provider to offer the benefits of 3T imaging with the convenience of an out-patient setting in the Ocean State. Bringing 3T MRI technology to the Pawtucket office provides patients in northern Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts with a more convenient option when requiring an MRI examination.

The “T” in 3T stands for Tesla, which is the unit of measurement representing the strength of a magnetic field. A 3T MRI scanner has two times the strength of a 1.5T scanner and 10 to 15 times the strength of an open MRI machine.

RIMI radiologists hold faculty positions at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and subspecialize in all areas of medical imaging, including women’s imaging; bone, joint and muscle imaging; neurology; cardiology; and pediatrics. Furthermore, RIMI radiologists are on staff at Rhode Island Hospital, Women & Infants, Hasbro Children’s Hospital and The Miriam Hospital.
