Patients in Pulaski County, Indiana now have access to quiet, comfortable MR exams thanks to the installation of the Vantage TitanTM / Zen Edition 1.5T from Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc at Pulaski Memorial Hospital. Pulaski Memorial, a critical access facility that was previously using a mobile unit to conduct MR exams, is the first health care provider in the U.S. to install the system. The facility is leveraging the system to conduct musculoskeletal (MSK) and neuro exams, as well as expand its abdominal imaging capabilities.

“We knew we needed a new MR system that would significantly improve comfort for our patients, while also giving our clinicians high-quality images so that they could expand the types of imaging exams our facility performs, without undergoing a steep learning curve,” said Aleta Cable, MR technician, Pulaski Memorial Hospital. “The Titan / Zen Edition 1.5T delivers on all of our needs. Since installing the system, even our most claustrophobic patients find the system more comfortable and extremely quiet. And feedback from our clinicians who use the system has been enormously positive.”
