Florida Hospital Zephyrhills Now Offers Enhanced Patient Comfort and Power in MRI Exams
Date:4/19/2016

Florida Hospital Zephyrhills is now offering enhanced patient comfort and power in MRI exams. It's the first to deliver Quiet Suite technology in this area. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging exam of the soft tissue, bone, and muscle. MRIs have become one of the fastest growing types of medical diagnostic tests in the United States. With Florida Hospital Zephyrhills’ recent installation of a MAGNETOM Aera 1.5 T MRI System from Siemens Healthcare, patients can now experience faster, more comfortable exams.

“Our imaging team is excited to offer the latest MRI technology to our community,” said Laurie Hitzel, Director of Imaging Services at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. “Our new MRI gives us the ability to deliver advanced technology, resulting in faster, high-quality images, with less stress for our patients.”

There are many benefits of the MAGNETOM Aera 1.5T. The MAGNETOM Aera boasts a wide open bore, which is the tube-like structure of an MRI machine where the patient lies during the imaging process. This Open Bore design helps reduce the closed-in feeling of traditional MRIs and its short design allows for many exams to be performed with the patient’s head outside of the system. And whether you’re big or small, short or tall, this system accommodates people of all sizes and weight up to 550 pounds.

Additional patient-friendly features include a mood lighting application which allows patients to set the mood for their exam through custom lighting to create a more relaxed environment. And unlike traditional MRI scanners, Florida Hospital Zephyrhills is the first in the area to deliver an MRI equipped with Quiet Suite to reduce the noise during an exam, resulting in a more comfortable experience for patients.

The MAGNETOM Aera offers doctors an array of diagnostic possibilities and provides patients with a more comfortable experience. Like all MRI’s the MAGNETOM Aera uses magnets that are measured in Tesla (T) to acquire images. At 1.5T, the MAGETOM Aera offers superb image quality that may be used for a wide range of medical needs – from orthopedic and sports- related injuries to breast cancer testing.

This system is designed to help physicians make quicker, more accurate diagnoses. To schedule an MRI exam, patients should call (813) 783-TEST (8378).
