Boardman, Ohio (WKBN) – A new piece of medical technology was delivered Tuesday to an imaging facility in Boardman.
A construction crane helped place a new Vantage Titan 3T MRI unit at Southwoods Imaging on Market Street.
Once installed, the machine will be one of two machines between Pittsburgh and Cleveland offering state-of-the-art imaging capability.
The 3T MRI provides doctors with clearer images necessary to detect ailments earlier and allow for more precise diagnosis.
The new MRI unit also offers improved patient comfort features, such as the widest bore size available in the industry. The larger bore allows larger patients to be scanned comfortably and also reduces feelings of claustrophobia. The magnet is also equipped with Pianissimo, a special noise reduction technique making patient scans much quieter.
