Merced Open Imaging is home to one of the region's first open bore magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems that combines a larger bore, or opening, for larger and claustrophobic patients with the ability to capture high-field quality diagnostic images.
“The patient-friendly design of this magnet will make it easier for large patients and those with claustrophobia to have an MRI examination which produces higher quality images. This will potentially reduce the need to repeat and interrupt exams.”
Merced Open Imaging is also home to a SOMATOM Definition AS CT scanner with the innovative FAST CARE platform that helps to maximize clinical outcomes and provides automation to improve patient satisfaction. Additionally, the system helps achieve outstanding images at a lower radiation dose through its innovative Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure (CARE) features.
The FAST CARE technology has been recognized as the industry's most effective solution for optimizing exam speed, image quality and radiation dose exposure in CT imaging.
