Mid Coast Hospital Installs Latest MRI Technology

Mid Coast Hospital's new GE 1.5T MRI machine

Mid Coast Hospital recently installed a new GE 1.5T MRI machine, now offering the region's latest MRI technology with enhanced comfort for patients and top-quality images for radiologists.

An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) test uses powerful magnets, radio waves, and a computer to produce detailed images that help healthcare providers diagnose a condition or see how well a patient is responding to treatment. During an MRI test, the patient lies on a bed that is moved into the tube-like machine while the exam is completed.

When a doctor recommends an imaging exam, it may be one of the most important tests of a patient's life. Doctors use these images to make decisions on how to best care for the patient, sometimes diagnosing life-threatening illnesses. Not all MRIs offer the same image quality and results.

When a patient chooses Mid Coast Hospital for an MRI, we deliver a host of benefits:

  • Better Experience: Significantly quieter exams, head- or feet-first scanning, and a larger bore to reduce claustrophobia.
  • Improved Quality: Images that give greater detail than ever before, resulting in fewer repeat exams and improved diagnostics capability.
  • Lower Cost: More reliable test results at the same or lower cost than other organizations.
  • Full Integration: Aligned with local providers, allowing your physician to instantly order tests. Results flow seamlessly into the patient's health record for quick and accurate diagnosis.
  • Compassionate Care: A non-profit community hospital with a mission to care for the health of our community, providing around-the-clock access to high-quality care to all.

The Diagnostic Imaging program at Mid Coast Hospital is integrated with the Mid Coast–Parkview Health system and fully accredited by the American College of Radiology. Our team of technologists, radiologists, and nurses are located onsite and are using the latest diagnostic equipment to get solid test results that our patients and providers can count on.
