New Hospital Imaging Equipment Begins to Arrive – Ventura

Some presents just arrive early, and that was the case when we took possession of our new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system for the new hospital just before Christmas Day.

Our new GE 1.5 Tesla magnet, which represents the latest imaging technology, and demonstrates our commitment in bringing the most sophisticated imaging systems to the communities we serve, arrived onsite. Among the more notable benefits of this system:

  • Physicians will be provided with imaging scans of greater clarity for more accurate diagnosis.
  • The system can easily accommodate larger individuals, and is designed to be less claustrophobic. 
  • The scan time is much shorter.

Due to the size of the system, an exterior opening to the new building was created to receive the unit. Needless to say there was great excitement as the MRI was installed, and deep satisfaction knowing that CMHS will continue to provide our community with excellent medical capabilities and expertise.
