Precise images of the head, spine, abdomen, and extremities (ex: knees, shoulders, etc.) using a powerful magnetic field.
Fairfield Memorial Hospital’s MRI services are provided via mobile unit through Associate in Medical Imaging. The mobile service partnership with Associate in Medical Imaging gives Fairfield Memorial Hospital the ability to provide the community with the latest in imaging. The MRI mobile unit comes to Fairfield Memorial Hospital three days a week: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
Fairfield Memorial Hospital has recently upgraded their MRI mobile unit. The new 1.5 General Electric with HDI has features including High Definition, eight-lead coils, and 15x software enhancement. Due to the high definition platform it allows the data to be obtained quickly, which reduces motion and gives better clarity.
The new system still performs the standard MRI procedures as before, but now has the capability of performing MRA tests (imaging with detail for the arteries) of the abdominal, renal, and lower extremities.
