Blanchard Valley Hospital adds new, more spacious MRI

Blanchard Valley Hospital has added a new MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) system with a design focused on patient comfort.

The new system, called the Siemens Open Bore Aera MRI, can accommodate larger patients, reduce claustrophobia and provide faster imaging than many traditional MRI units.

The new MRI system has a 70 cm open bore, which is the tube-like structure of the MRI machine where the patient lies during the imaging. This is much larger than traditional MRIs and can accommodate patients up to 550 pounds.
