NYC Council Member James Vacca Helps Brings Advanced MRI Technology to Einstein College of Medicine
Date:12/16/2011

BRONX, N.Y., Dec. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At a morning ceremony today, New York City Council Member James Vacca, along with administrators and faculty members of Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, celebrated the re-launch of Einstein's Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center (MRRC). Thanks to Council Member Vacca's support, Einstein now houses an advanced magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy system (MRI/MRS) that provides imaging capabilities unique in the New York City area.

With the help of $2 million in New York City capital funding that Council Member Vacca allocated in 2008 for the city's 2009 fiscal year budget cycle, Einstein purchased a Philips 3.0 Tesla Achieva Quasar TX Multinuclear MRI/MRS system.  Representing the latest developments in the field of magnetic resonance imaging, the system – which includes a six ton magnet – provides significant enhancements in speed, image uniformity and quality of imaging in any region of the body.

"I was very happy to be able to allocate City Council capital funds to assist Einstein in purchasing this important equipment, which will enhance their already outstanding research capabilities," said Council Member Vacca. "Not only is Einstein a leader in vital and cutting-edge medical research, but it is also an outstanding member of our community here in the Northeast Bronx. It is my hope that this new technology will allow the Gruss MRRC to make big strides in understanding a wide variety of diseases and disorders."

"With the support of Council Member Vacca and the Council's Bronx delegation, Einstein now offers researchers and the surrounding community the best medical imaging has to offer," said Allen M. Spiegel, M.D.'/>"/>
