Open MRI of Pueblo, home to the city’s first Open MRI, is now the home of Hitachi's OASIS High-Field MR System, the first outpatient High-Field MRI in the state of Colorado. The OASIS is a high-field performance Open MR system that provides state-of-the-art magnetic resonance images and advanced clinical procedures, along with a number of innovative features and benefits for patients and physicians alike.
The OASIS offers the highest quality performance with Patient Active Comfort Technology, which provides unmatched openness for patients. OASIS represents an uncompromisable understanding of what it takes to provide a positive imaging experience for everyone involved, focusing on diagnostic confidence and patient comfort. Open MRI of Pueblo’s on-site radiologist, Dr. William M. Needell is excited about the new magnet stating, “With this new high field imaging equipment we can offer our patients shorter scan times while still providing excellence in medical imaging all with the comfort and convenience of a wide open scanner.”
The technology combines high-power Magnetic Resonance
Imaging with Hitachi’s 1.2 Tesla open architecture vertical-field
magnet to deliver the best images quickly and efficiently.
The open-air design minimizes the claustrophobic effect and
reduces patient anxiety, while providing physicians with complete
patient access. Open MRI of Pueblo is acquiring The OASIS in order to offer physicians and patients, within the Pueblo community, the most advanced technology available.
