New "3T MRI"
Miami Valley Hospital is committed to providing the most comprehensive digital medical imaging. Our 3T and 1.5T magnets are of the most powerful MRIs. Images produced from these magnets provide vivid images and most often can be done faster.
A Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan is a non-invasive, medical imaging procedure offered at our medical imaging centers. MRI scans are performed on an inpatient or outpatient basis, while most are performed at our conveniently located outpatient facilities.
MRI imaging is a valuable tool to produce detailed pictures of internal organs to evaluate body structure, internal organs, and tissues.
For early detection, screening and evaluation, our sophisticated capabilities at multiple sites throughout our facilities allows patients to receive the highest-quality of care. The combination of our advanced technology and highly-skilled staff delivers comprehensive care, and a positive and safe experience for our patients.
What an MRI Scan Does
These detailed images help our physicians determine the presence of diseases or injuries that may not be easily seen using other imaging methods such as X-ray, ultrasound or computed tomography (CT scan).
MRI procedures include:
- Head and neck
- MRA angiography
- Whole body
- Breast MRI
- Musculoskeletal and spine
- Chest MRI
These procedures provide valuable information for a variety of conditions and illnesses relating to cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, neurology, vascular, and emergency medicine.
Where can I have it done?
The test can be performed at the following locations:
MVH Awarded Accreditation from American College of Radiology
Miami Valley Hospital Medical Imaging has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement. The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
