By Staff Reports, posted Jan 4, 2019
Wilmington Health’s MRI scanner at the provider’s office at 1202 Medical Center Drive recently received accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission, according to a news release.

Wilmington Health’s mobile MRI unit at its Porters Neck location, 8108-B Market St., was also reaccredited by IAC.

Wilmington Health's MRI at the Medical Center Drive office is an Optima MR450w. The model combines the benefits of wide-bore imaging with the Geometry Embracing Method (GEM) suite, the release stated.

“The GEM suite is an integrated system that combines high-density radiofrequency surface coils and innovative software technologies designed to provide uncompromising image quality and increased patient comfort,” the release said.

The system offers sound-reduction technology and feet-first imaging, “comfort-enhancing features [that] help address some common causes of patient anxiety.”

The wide-bore diameter can accommodate up to 500 pounds.
