Diagnostic Imaging Department adds Full- Time MRI Services

Carlinville Area Hospital announces that Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) services are now available Monday-Friday. “On-site full-time MRI services makes it convenient for our patients to schedule their exams and not have to travel out of town.” Deb Camerer, Radiology Department Head.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique that uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body’s organs and structures. MRI studies can detect tiny structural changes within the body and can be used as an accurate method of disease and injury detection throughout the body and to help diagnose or monitor treatment for a variety of conditions.

“The addition of a dedicated MRI to our Diagnostic Imaging Department is in keeping with Carlinville Area Hospital dedication to excellence in patient care.” Ken Reid, CEO.
