Crookston — RiverView Health announces the completion of its radiology remodeling project. The project began last spring to accommodate new CT and MRI equipment. The CT equipment has been operational from about six months now, and with the arrival and installation of the new MRI equipment earlier in September, the project is now complete.

With the new MAGNETOM ® Verio MRI scanner from Siemens, physicians at RiverView can offer some of the most advanced MR imaging services in a magnet that is designed for maximum patient comfort. RiverView’s new MRI scanner offers excellent image quality, super diagnostic capabilities, and exceptional patient comfort with a large, patient friendly opening. With one foot of spacious headroom patients won’t feel like they are nose to nose with the top of the magnet, which means tight confines in an older MRI is a thing of the past at RiverView Health.
