Magnificent Day for a New Magnet

Wow! We have been waiting for this day for a long time at GRMC. Our new magnetic resonance imager (MRI) arrived yesterday! As they say, a picture is often worth a 1,000 words. And given my blog posts sometimes get a little long, how about a few pictures instead?

This new unit will be awesome for our patients.

Special thanks to all the people making this happen: especially our imaging, facilities, and communication staff; Ball Construction and all their subcontractors; the good folks at Hitachi; and of course all the donors who helped raise over $320,000!

Thank you all to the power of 1.5 Tesla!

I've been in quite a few of those MRI machines. I'm glad you got a new one. They are one step in saving lives!!
