First Accreditation Received For High-Field Extremity MRI

DANBURY, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Northeast Radiology has received the first-in-the-nation American College of Radiology (ACR) Accreditation for its High-Field, Extremity, Open MRIs located in Danbury, Connecticut and Mount Kisco, New York. Both locations feature the MSK Extreme® MRI from ONI Medical Systems.

Dr. Howard Lee, President of Northeast Radiology, explains, “We worked closely with the ACR to meet the standards of excellence for Extremity, Open MRI. The MRI standards set by ACR are the most demanding in the field of radiology and we are proud to be the first practice to have received ACR accreditation for the High-Field, Extremity, Open MRI.”

When a patient needs an MRI for their knee, hand, wrist, elbow, foot, or ankle, they can relax in a reclining chair while placing only the body part needing imaging inside the scanner. The patient can read a book or listen to music. Parents or guardians appreciate that they can sit next to a child and interact while the child has a comfortable MRI.

“I have found that the High-Field, Extremity, Open MRI is especially suited for claustrophobic or pediatric patients,” explains Dr. Kei Doi, musculoskeletal radiologist for Northeast Radiology. “It is an extremely comfortable examination and the feedback we’ve received from our patients has been favorable.”
