The $2.4 million project will bring a 3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging unit to downtown Niagara Falls!
The new MRI will …
- Provide patient with access to higher quality scans.
- Provide early detection of cancers & other diseases at treatable stages.
- Keep patients close to home and onsite for MRI imaging.
- Provide equitable access and decrease health disparities.
- Feature designs to make the patient experience more comfortable.
- Have an open configuration and faster scan times, thus enhancing service delivery to people with intellectual & developmental disabilities by reducing anxiety levels and permitting scans to be completed without the use of sedation or anesthesia.
- Minimize stress or claustrophobia.
Eliminating Stress Around Diagnostic Care
There’s a lot of stress that comes with health complications, and convenience of care should never be one of them. Many in Niagara Falls don’t have the means to travel to Buffalo for an MRI. Travel times, finding transportation, and making sure family is taken care of adds many complications to an already stressful situation. We want to provide world-class care with the latest technology for Niagara Falls in Niagara Falls. A new MRI will directly impact the lives of over 2100 patients per year. One of those patients could be your friend, family member, or even you. Help us transform healthcare in WNY, make a contribution below.
Keeping patients close to home and onsite for diagnostic imaging
“The new MRI and center will greatly enhance the care of patients locally. This technology enables us to keep an even greater number of patients here at Memorial as opposed to transferring them out,” said Dr. Gerald Gorman, Chief of Emergency Services.
The MRI Imaging Center of Niagara will be conveniently located in The Heart Center of Niagara
The Heart Center of Niagara is a comprehensive cardiac care facility providing diagnostic, clinical, and invasive services including cardiac catheterization. The MRI Imaging Center of Niagara will provide access to cardiovascular imaging that will better detect, monitor, and treat a wide range of heart conditions.
When minutes matter, the MRI Imaging Center of Niagara will be ready!
When it comes to stroke care, minutes matter. Under the direction of University of Buffalo Neurosurgery’s (UBNS) internationally renowned endovascular team, the new 3T MRI on Memorial’s downtown campus will allow for convenient quick access to imagery that can uncover brain damage at the onset of stroke symptoms.
“In addition to Viz.ai and perfusion imaging to assess patients for urgent thrombectomy, the 3T MRI will give us the capability of diagnosing and treating minor to moderate strokes at NFMMC without the need for transfer. This is one further step to maximizing expertise and treating patients within their community when appropriate. We welcome this wonderful advance in technological capability within the system,” said Dr. Kenneth Synder, UBNS neurosurgeon and Memorial’s Medical Stroke Director.
With YOUR HELP, we can bring this project to fruition!
