New tool will help doctors at Castleview Hospital
With the conclusion of a $1.5 million project, Castleview Hospital now has the ability to do a lot of dianosing they have never been able to do before.
This week a new tool for doctors to use was introduced with the introduction of a 960 foot in-house MRI unit.
The project began in mid-January, and a modular unit was built in Indiana and shipped to Price to add onto the hospital. The magnet for the unit was roof loaded and crews finished the exterior and roof work on site.
With enhanced clinical and productivity advantages, it brings a whole new realm of care to the area.
The machine has a 60 cm patient opening and has a full 45 cm field of view both of which will add comfort and ease to patient exams. The new machine will aide in spine studies, orthopedic exams, pelvic exams for both sexes, abdominal exams, specialized vascular applications and breast imaging.
