DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - December 27, 2016) - Methodist Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) has opened a new outpatient-based imaging center in southeast Tarrant County. Located in Mansfield, the center offers the first high-field open MRI in the community.
"As an outpatient imaging partner, Methodist CDI in Mansfield is able to deliver high quality and cost- effective medical imaging care for our patients with fast, convenient service," says Methodist Mansfield President John Phillips, FACHE. "We are excited to have an entity affiliated with Methodist offering outpatient imaging services in the Mansfield service area."
Methodist CDI in Mansfield is located within the Alexander Medical Building at 2975 E. Broad Street, Suite 101. It offers high-field open MRI, low-dose CT, ultrasound and X-ray. The high-field open MRI is one of the most advanced open MRI system with magnet strength and image quality comparable to traditional high-field units. As an open scanner with 270 degrees of unobstructed views, patients can easily see out of the machine making an exam easier for those who are claustrophobic.
"The high-field open MRI provides exceptional quality and allows us to capture clear images and provide referring physicians the diagnostic information they need to provide the best care possible," said David, Leifer, M.D., Medical Director and Body Radiologist at Methodist CDI.
"When patients have a question about their health, they want answers now," said Pat Zadra, Sr. Vice President and General Manager at CDI. "By ensuring we have a strong network of outpatient imaging centers throughout the DFW area, we can give patients convenient access to high-quality, timely exams. That means they get fast, accurate answers to use with their providers to determine a path forward."
Methodist CDI operates six other outpatient-based diagnostic imaging centers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
