Hawthorn Medical recently installed a new GE Optima MRI unit in the Diagnostic Imaging Department. The unit offers advanced scanning capabilities while emphasizing patient comfort. The unit features a wide bore (opening) diameter and feet-first imaging, which will help patients who often feel claustrophobic. In addition, the unit has acoustic reduction technology and a special video screen for patients to watch during the scan with their choice of scenery and music.
