Digital Broadband MRI

The Medical Center is the only hospital in the region that offers MRIs with the Philips Ingenia 3.0T, the first-ever digital broadband Magnetic Resonance scanner. The Ingenia 3.0T brings revolutionary scanning capabilities to Southcentral Kentucky. Exams take less time, image resolution is greatly improved, and patient claustrophobia is reduced by a wider opening.

The Ingenia 3.0T is also fast. Our technologists can often perform American College of Radiology-recommended routine scans of the brain, spine, knee, ankle, and liver in a scan time of just a few minutes -- with superb image quality. This results in fewer repeat exams and more convenience for our patients.

The 3.0T delivers precise, detailed MR images to accurately diagnose a wide range of clinical conditions in the following areas:

  • General abdominal imaging
  • High-resolution peripheral angiography
  • Total spine multi-station imaging
  • High-resolution static and dynamic joint studies
  • Musculoskeletal imaging
  • Neurological imaging
  • Vascular system imaging
  • Spectroscopy of the brain and internal organs
  • Cardiac MR
  • Whole-body imaging
  • Breast MRI

The Medical Center is committed to bring the highest quality, state-of-the-art technology to our region. Our newly expanded MRI suite includes the 3.0T MR scanner and a 1.5T MR scanner, as well as three holding beds so patient wait time is reduced. Advanced MRI technology is just one more way we live up to our mission to care for people and improve lives in our community.
