MountainView Hospital’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system is the first in Las Vegas to receive the latest, clinically advanced system update.
The upgraded system is the latest offering, from GE Healthcare, is devised to help clinicians improve workflow, lower cost of ownership and improve patient comfort. The system uses 34 percent less power than previous generation MRI systems, and requires a smaller footprint for installation.
The upgrade covers various productivity-enhancing applications and new features to improve patient care and comfort to previous generation systems. The upgraded system also extends the power of MRI to patients with MRI-conditional metal implants. With the system, two to three more patients per day can be scanned due to new features and increase in productivity.
“MountainView Hospital is grateful for the support provided by HCA Healthcare that has enabled us to be the first in Las Vegas to offer our clinicians and patients with the latest MRI system,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “This upgrade will enable us to provide more patients with a more efficient process of care in a comfortable environment.”
MountainView Hospital continues to provide the latest in imaging care. The upgraded MRI system is now operating at MountainView along with the latest CT, nuclear medicine, X-ray and bi-plane machine systems. Outpatient imaging services are offered through Red Rock Radiology. Red Rock Radiology radiologists are board certified and fellowship trained to offer superior service and quality to our referring physicians.
