The MRI unit at Rochelle Community Hospital is currently undergoing an extensive upgrade to Canon Medical’s newest MRI system, the Encore Vantage Orian. The current magnet will not be replaced but virtually everything else in the MRI room is being updated and upgraded to the newest technology available. Benefits include increased acceleration which will reduce the time of an exam and up to 99% noise reduction. RCH is always looking to improve the patient experience and keep technology current.

This upgrade will take several weeks to complete. Currently, RCH is continuing MRI studies with a portable MRI available Monday through Friday as usual.
