Last updated 11/11/2023 at 1:03pm | View PDF
Adventist Health is improving healthcare in Tulare with an advanced MRI and medical imaging space. The equipment began serving patients in late August.
The ribbon-cutting was held on September 6 at Adventist Health Tulare, 869 N. Cherry St.
MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to create an image of the body, and the new Tulare MRI leverages artificial intelligence to enhance patient comfort and image quality. Healthcare providers order MRI scans to help diagnose cancer, cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal disorders, or to examine soft tissues of the brain or spine. The Tulare MRI also offers advanced breast scans for patients who are at higher risk of cancer.
The new MRI, which replaces an aged system at Adventist Health Tulare, is part of a more than $4 million dollar investment in 2023 to enhance medical technology and services in Tulare County.
