ROSE RADIOLOGY UPGRADES 1.5T MRI IN BOOT RANCH TO FURTHER ENHANCE IMAGING
September 15, 2012 - Rose Radiology continues to advance the superior standards of patient care and quality radiology with innovation and cutting edge technology by upgrading its Philips 1.5T MRI unit in Boot Ranch. The installation of the 16-channel system will continue to advance the quality and application of sophisticated hardware and software options, while building upon the stable 1.5T platform, which is radiology�s gold standard for MRI.
Improvements include enhanced image quality with 16-channel imaging coils that provide additional MRI signal transmission and reception. This also will speed up the imaging process, reducing the time a patient spends in the MRI scanner.
Rose Radiology�s state of the art traumatic brain injury radiology program utilizes practical evaluation by subspecialty trained and Board certified neuro-radiologists using 16-channel coil systems and advanced techniques such as Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI). Diseases of the brain are also evaluated with susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) to assess for micro-hemorrhages associated with traumatic brain injury, vascular dementia, stroke, tumors and multiple sclerosis (MS). With the 16-channel neurological coil systems, Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) of the brain is more detailed and valuable to add to traditional assessment with MRI.
Rose Radiology is a physician owned outpatient diagnostic imaging facility with thirteen locations, spanning from Spring Hill to Sarasota. Rose Radiology Boot Ranch's inaugural ribbon cutting was celebrated in 2002 and since then has converted to completely digital technology, housing FONAR's legendary stand-up MRI and a high field MRI in one convenient location. Rose Radiology's legacy shines brightly with a decade of service to patients and medical professionals in the greater Bay Area.
