September 6, 2022 – A pioneering, state-of-the-art radiology center in New Jersey has officially announced its date to open to the public this month.
Designed to enhance and redefine the medical diagnostic imaging experience for its patients, the new ImageCare Radiology site in Jefferson opened on September 1, 2022 and will provide the most advanced medical diagnostic imaging to date.
Launched initially with their new 10-minute 3T MRI scanners, those who work at the radiology center are excited to offer patients the fastest medical scanners on the market, along with other useful and innovative services that go beyond everything they have been able to offer patients before.
“We will soon be launching a number of new imaging and radiology services, but in particular the introduction of 10-minute MRI exams will be revolutionary,” said Dr. Clay Hinrichs, President of ImageCare Radiology. “Not only will our patients continue to receive the best possible service and advanced diagnostic imaging, but they will also be able to take advantage of the fastest 3T scanners available. This is helpful in many ways, but especially for patients who are children, who are claustrophobic, or who live with a disability. They will feel much more comfortable knowing that they can still receive detailed and advanced image quality, but it will take much less time.
“Many people have already avoided such scanners because they felt uncomfortable in tight spaces or uncomfortable standing still for long periods of time, which is not ideal because we want to ensuring that our patients get the best possible service and early diagnosis.Now patients don’t have to worry about that and can now receive accurate imaging in a shorter time,” added Dr. Hinrichs.
In addition to initial 3T MRIs, the site will also offer the highest resolution of Siemens PET/CT scans, sedation services with anesthesiologists for all modalities and nuclear medicine – offering bone scans, thyroid function tests, HIDA scans, kidney scans and tumor workups. . The center is also expected to launch an interventional suite, which will offer lower-cost outpatient solutions for procedures such as nephrostomy tubes, peripheral vascular studies, MediPorts for cancer treatment, tumor embolizations and vertebroplasty for vertebral fractures. .
Dr. Clay Hinrichs said each of the services will be launched gradually, but the patient experience will be enhanced from day one of opening.
He concluded, “Following the initial launch of our 10-minute 3T MRIs, we will also offer Mammography, Ultrasound with Echocardiography, and X-Rays. We will have the first full-service, non-hospital nuclear scanner in northern New Jersey. and will be able to offer outpatient solutions at lower cost through our interventional suite. We are proud to say that our mammograms will be “PINK Better Mammo” with artificial intelligence, which is the first FDA-approved AI technology to improve breast cancer detection. We are also excited about our future opening of CT/PET scanners and sedation for all of our services, which should be available to all by the end of the summer.
Patients wishing to make an appointment can use the new services from 1 September.
