For patient convenience and comfort, Nathan Littauer Hospital has expanded MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) services to its Perth location. The hospital began offering MRI services recently at their Primary/Specialty Care Center located in Perth at 4104 State Highway 30 in Perth across from the Perthshire. The center is offering Saturday MRI service every other Saturday at the location with their Open Bore MRI technology.

This technology offers patients a larger exam area and faster scans times features which are especially helpful for those people who are claustrophobic.

“We are pleased to expand our services into Perth. We believe our patients will like the greater convenience of Saturday appointments.” explained Laurence E. Kelly, Hospital President and CEO. He added, “In our first week we had more exams scheduled than we anticipated for the location.”

MRI technology helps doctors take highly-defined images of the body’s interior organs and tissues. The equipment uses a strong magnet combined with radio waves pulses to take images inside the body. It is particularly useful for imaging the spine, as well as the soft tissues of joints and the interior structure of bones.

Also, with the hospital’s integrated Electronic Medical Records System, the patient imaging records can be quickly read and interpreted for the prescribing physician to see. The MRI at Nathan Littauer‘s Perth Primary Care Center is the second location available to patients in the region. The hospital will continue to offer MRI services at its campus.
