MRI means quicker, more accurate diagnoses

For our patients with one sided hearing loss or specific types of dizziness, we utilize the MRI scanner several times per week, specifically looking for small tumors arising near the inner ear.

We have been very impressed with the MRI results obtained here in our Hospital and I know the patients find it much more convenient to have an MRI scan performed close to home and avoid lengthy travel to other centers for scanning, which was necessary in the past.

In addition to the reduced travel, we now have the ability to obtain the scan in a much more timely fashion, often within days or weeks.

Having this type of diagnostic tool available locally to our patients makes a difference in our ability to detect and treat disease which can sometimes be difficult or impossible to find with other types of testing.
