Southern Ocean Medical Center Finalizes Installation of New State-of-the-art MRI


Manahawkin, NJ - Southern Ocean Medical Center has just installed a new 1.5 Tesla EchoSpeed MRI system. The Signa whole body imaging MR system is a high-performance machine with advanced applications, which include shorter scan time.

The "Inhance" application is designed to provide Non-Contrast MRA, which allows patients that are renal-compromised to be imaged.

The MRI suite is located in the Radiology and includes a separate waiting and changing  room  for outpatients and an inpatient hold area.  These areas have a flat screen television for patients and the new MRI also allows patients to listen to music through a Sound System during their scan.
