Hospital Wants New MRI

MRI

St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson is shopping for a new magnetic resonance imaging system, and approved over two-million dollars last week for that purchase. The current proposal is for a Siemens Magnetom Area, the market’s only 2nd Generation Wide-bore System. The system is more patient-friendly with more space, shorter scan times and shorter breath-holds. It will also allow options for expanded services including cardiac, surgical planning, full-body oncology exams and angiography. Funding for the project was approved for up to $2,200,000 which includes space redesign, all MRI equipment and accessories, de-installation/installation, and mobile MRI coach. It is hoped the machine can be in place by this summer.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
