Aurora Breast Imaging System Installed at UAMS

June 4, 2007 - The Breast Center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences/Arkansas Center Research Center (UAMS/ACRC Breast Center) recently announced that patients in Central Arkansas now have access to the Aurora 1.5T Dedicated Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) System, specifically designed for 3-D bilateral breast imaging.

Prior to the delivery of the Aurora system, patients were screened using a whole body MRI unit with an add-on breast coil located outside of the UAMS/ACRC Breast Center. To meet the growing demand of both screening and diagnostic patients who were candidates for breast MRI, the Aurora system was the appropriate selection. Since its installation, the Aurora system has served more than 400 patients in Central Arkansas and its surrounding cities.
