Pulaski Memorial Hospital opens new suite to house advanced MR system, making exams comfortable for patients

Indiana Hospital Installs First Vantage Titan/Zen Edition 1.5T MRI in U.S.

August 10, 2018 — Patients in Pulaski County, Ind., now have access to quiet, comfortable magnetic resonance (MR) exams thanks to the installation of the Vantage Titan/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 healthcare 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.”

“The Vantage Titan/Zen Edition 1.5T in our new MR suite helps us improve physician referrals to our facility because of its advanced imaging tools and patient-friendly features,” said Bryson Minix, diagnostic imaging manager, Pulaski Memorial Hospital. “Since we installed the system, our patient volume has grown by 20 percent, which delivers a tangible impact to our bottom line.”

The new MRI system delivers a complete suite of tools to help clinicians make accurate diagnoses. The system features workflow enhancements and patient comfort tools, including Pianissimo Zen, which makes scanning even more quiet by reducing sound during acquisition by 99 percent.* It also improves workflow for difficult procedures like cardiac, neuro and spine exams with EasyTech, which standardizes workflow with automatic positioning while delivering consistent image quality.
