New Arrival: GE Discovery MR750w 3.0T Wide Bore MRI

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | April 16th, 2014

Radiology Associates of Ridgewood is proud to introduce the newest member of our family of imaging modalities – The GE Discovery MR750w 3.0T Wide Bore MRI – The first of its kind in Bergen County.

This 3T MRI produces the clearest images possible of the human anatomy thus improving diagnostic accuracy. Equally as important, the 70 cm wide bore (158 square inches) will provide a more comfortable experience for our patients, especially the elderly, pediatric, claustrophobic, and obese patients. The wider bore adds 12.4 inches to the circumference maximizing patient comfort and easing claustrophobia. Also, with a weight limit of 500 lbs, we will be able to offer the benefits of MRI imaging to almost everyone. Additional benefits include reduced patient repositioning, shorter exam times, more headroom, legroom and elbow room, feet first or head first scanning for all anatomies, and design features to embrace patients of a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

Our commitment to our patients and our referring physicians is to provide the most current technology. This new addition, along with our CT Veo Ultra Low Dose CT scanner and our Hologic Breast Tomosynthesis unit, clearly positions our imaging center as the premier imaging center in the tri-state area.

Our new MRI scanner will be available to patients on or about October 14th.
