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.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
