Good Samaritan Health System has added Hitachi’s Oasis High-Field Open magnetic resonance (MR) imaging system to its list of diagnostic offerings at the GSH Imaging location at The Good Samaritan Hospital. Oasis offers a broad range of clinical capabilities, sequences and features to meet the demand of today’s diagnostic imaging professionals. Headquartered in Twinsburg, Ohio, Hitachi has been a long-time pioneer of diagnostic imaging systems, with more than 1,500 installed in the United States.
“Good Samaritan has made this critical investment in this type of imaging technology to ensure that Lebanon County residents continue to have access to the best diagnostic tools available”, said Kimberly Feeman, senior vice president and chief operating officer at Good Samaritan. She adds, “Part of our ongoing commitment to high-quality healthcare is to stay on top of current technology. We also understand how important it is for our patients to be comfortable while receiving tests. This equipment allows us to offer the best of both worlds - high-tech and comfort.”
Hitachi has put a great deal of emphasis on making patients comfortable during their MRI exam. The inside of the Oasis provides a 270° unobstructed view, which minimizes anxiety and claustrophobia and maximizes a more pleasant environment for the patient during the MRI exam. This also allows the patient to have a loved one or friend nearby during the exam for further reassurance.
Oasis combines unparalleled patient comfort with powerful technology and an ultra fast workstation to make patient exams as quick and smooth as possible. Its imaging power is further boosted by an array of anatomically-specific, optimized receiver coils that allow advanced imaging applications ranging from vascular to orthopedic to women’s health.
