Open MRI now available at Sharon Regional


The Department of Medical Imaging at Sharon Regional Health System has expanded its MRI capabilities and is now offering Open MRI services at Sharon Regional's Cancer Care Center, 2320 Highland Road, Hermitage. MRI is a diagnostic tool used to assist physicians and other health team members obtain images of various parts of the body without the use of x-rays. The new Open MRI operates in a similar manner to the high field, fixed unit in place at Sharon Regional's main campus.


The Open MRI uses an "open" entrance, or gantry, and is particularly suited to patients who have feelings of claustrophobia or anxiety, or have other restriction issues that may have prevented them from having an MRI scan performed on Sharon Regional's fixed MRI unit.


Barry Marchetto, M.D., Chief radiologist at Sharon Regional, stated the availability of Open MRI services will benefit both patients and physicians. "Patients who needed Open MRI in the past had to go elsewhere for this service. We're pleased to now have Open MRI available at Sharon Regional along with the high level of radiologic expertise our team of radiologists provides for our patients," said Dr. Marchetto.

For more information on Open MRI services at Sharon Regional, ask your physician or call the Medical Imaging Scheduling Office at 724-983-3945.
