MRI plays an important role in testing and evaluating patients diagnostically. Mercy Mt. Shasta offers our patients advanced MRI technology in our hospital, providing them quicker diagnosis and treatment options.

Advanced Technology 

We offer the latest in technology when it comes to MRI. The Siemens MAGNETOM Avanto is an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scanner that enables radiologists to more quickly obtain the highest resolution full-body images. Those high-quality images help doctors to diagnose and treat their patients more effectively.


Patient Experience

For most applications, it is a feet-first entry machine, which greatly decreases anxiety for those patients who are not comfortable in small spaces. And because the technology is so efficient and fast, full-body scans can be done without having to stop and reposition the patient – making the MRI experience much better for the patient. This MRI is also much quieter than other models and can reduce noise by up to 97 percent.

Imaging Capabilities

Our advanced MRI equipment allows doctors to view patients from head to toe with three-dimensional imaging. MRI can be used for the following exams:

  • Angiography
  • Cardiovascular
  • Neurological
  • Oncology
  • Orthopedic
  • Pediatric Evaluations
