Insight Imaging Is the First Provider in Arizona to Offer New Wide-Bore, Ultra-Quiet 3.0 Tesla MRI

PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- Insight Imaging is among the first in the nation to offer a new kind of MRI experience for patients. The new MRI scanner at Insight Imaging - Fountains is the first 3.0 Tesla-strength system to feature a 70cm wide bore for enhanced patient comfort, as well as a "silent mode" for some exams, allowing for a quieter MRI experience.

The wider bore provides more space which can relieve anxiety for patients who are uncomfortable in a traditional MRI scanner. The new MRI by General Electric Company™ (GE) is also specially designed to follow the natural contours of the body for maximum patient comfort as patients lie in the scanner for their MRI.

"We are delighted to bring this very advanced medical imaging technology to our patients in The Valley," says Jordan Cohen, M.D., Musculoskeletal and Neuroradiologist and Medical Director, Insight Imaging. "This new 3T MRI not only gives patients a more comfortable imaging experience in terms of increased space when lying in the scanner and reduced noise, but it also gives our radiologists incredibly detailed images to review, specifically the anatomy that can be traditionally difficult to image including neurological structures, vascular systems, cartilaginous surfaces and small bones in the wrist, hands and feet."

"Patients have a choice in their MRI provider," says Randy Woelfel, Vice President of Operations and Business Development, Insight Imaging of Arizona. "Insight Imaging is focused on the patients' overall experience, both in maximizing comfort and investing in advanced medical imaging technology that can provide the best information available to guide patient care. In addition to the new 3T MRI, we've also installed a state-of-the-art, 16-slice CT scanner and have remodeled the center for an overall improved patient experience."

Insight Imaging - Fountains is located at 5620 W. Thunderbird Road, Suite A, Glendale, AZ 85306. Patients can call Insight Imaging at 602.627.9933 to schedule an MRI. A doctor's referral is required. Visit www.insighthealth.com/arizona to learn more.
