Witham Health Services is pleased to announce the installation of a MAGNETOM Altea 1.5T MRI which is now available at our Whitestown at Anson location within its Diagnostic Imaging Suite. A ribbon cutting ceremony was recently held to introduce the new MRI which is fast, convenient and local.

The new state-of-the-art MAGNETOM Altea 1.5T MRI is uniquely designed to deliver the best of both worlds: exceptional image quality for physicians and a comfortable experience for patients. It enables us to deliver precise, personalized exams for all our patients.

“We wanted to find the best of both worlds,” says David Brinkley, Director Radiology Services at Witham. On one hand, we were looking for the MRI scanner that delivered the best possible images. On the other, we wanted our patients to have the best possible experience closer to their home. MAGNETOM Altea really brought it all together for us.”

The system features BioMatrix Technology and accommodates patients’ anatomical and physiological differences as well as technologist differences. The Scanner adapts to the patients unique needs and delivers the clinical information needed to accurately diagnose and treat. These factors help decrease the need for rescans and increase scan consistency across a diverse patient population.

“Our previous MRI had offered excellent services; however, our new MRI allows Witham to expand access to Boone County and the surrounding areas. We now have the capability to scan more types of studies- from neuro and musculoskeletal, to prostate and breast imaging,” said David Brinkley.

Diverse patients are also accommodated with a 70-cm wide bore. The wide bore design will help reduces anxiety and claustrophobia symptoms.

“Combining the wide bore design and faster scan times, patients will have a much better experience during their MRI. With this new state-of-the-art-MRI system, Witham is now able to deliver the highest quality care and best possible patient experience to those patients in the Zionsville/Whitestown area.” said David Brinkley.
