New MRI Technology

San Juan Regional Medical Center is excited to announce the newest addition to our magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) services: GE HealthCare’s SIGNA™ Artist. This advanced MRI system, powered by deep learning technology, enhances patient comfort and experience. Benefits of the SIGNA™ Artist include:

  • Better image quality 
  • Reduced scan times 
  • Patient-friendly design that maximizes comfort to accommodate all types of patients 
  • 70cm wide-bore MR system to allow patients more room
  • AIR™ Coils wrap patients like a blanket during the scan 
  • Versatility with a feet-first option to reduce the risk of claustrophobia
  • Opportunity to listen to music during scans for a more calming and relaxing experience 
  • Shorter exams due to improvements in productivity and faster set-up times

The SIGNA™ Artist has up to 128 RF channels, which is the highest number in its class. The new technology also improves productivity for our clinicians with additional lighting and faster set-up times, streamlining workflows so they can stay focused on giving patients the best possible exam experience.
