RALEIGH (January 12, 2010) – Wake Radiology has opened a fixed MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) in Cary at the practice’s Ashville Avenue campus. The new Siemans’ Magnetom Essenza 1.5 Tesla unit is an ultra short-bore MRI, which makes exams more comfortable for patients.
“While we have offered mobile MRI services in the past, this is our first fixed MRI in Cary,” noted Margaret King, chief operating officer, Wake Radiology. “We are offering weekend and evening appointments for the convenience of patients who cannot schedule time away from work or school during typical business hours.”
Cary MRI, located in suite 180 at 300 Ashville Avenue, is adjacent to Wake Radiology’s general radiology, PET ·CT, radiation oncology, interventional services and breast imaging centers. The office accepts appointments with physician referral Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
