Methodist Sugar Land Hospital named international viewing site for new MRI
Methodist Sugar Land Hospital has been named the first international viewing site for its new Wide Bore 3 Tesla MRI machine, one of three in the nation.
"Being a worldwide show site means people from all over the world will come visit our imaging department to see if they are interested in upgrading their facilities with this powerful new wide bore, high-resolution MRI and other high-end technology available at MSLH," Dr. Robert Malone, board certified radiologist and medical director of imaging services at MSLH, said in a press release.
Also according to a press release, the 3T MRI machine will make getting an MRI a more comfortable process, as well as provide cleaner images for doctors.
"The clear images GEs Wide Bore 3 Tesla MRI machine produces is a huge leap forward," Dr. Timothy Sitter, board certified orthopedic surgeon with Methodist Orthopedic Specialists of Texas, said in the press release. "But you still need a skilled radiologist to interpret results."
The 70-centimeter opening and increased weight limit of 500 pounds on the 3T MRI machine can accommodate patients who are larger, claustrophobic, elderly or young. Patients can also enter the machine feet first rather than head first, as is normally the procedure.
