Methodist CDI Now has Seven Centers in Dallas/Fort Worth
Methodist Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) has opened a new outpatient-based imaging center in Mansfield, Texas, that reportedly offers the first high-field open magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system 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,” said 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 now 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 MD, 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 pPresident 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 in Texas.
