Baptist Health Medical Center-Arkadelphia Implements Enhanced MRI Technology

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. – Baptist Health Medical Center-Arkadelphia recently implemented an enhanced, state-of-the-art MRI technology for patients called Philips Ambition 1.5T Helium Free Operations MRI.

“This MRI is able to provide precise and quicker imaging results, all for the benefit of our patients in Clark County,” said Jay Quebedeaux, president of Baptist Health Medical Center-Arkadelphia. “With its enhanced features, the Philips Ambition 1.5T is also improving patient outcomes through a higher level of safety and reliability.”

When it comes to MRI technology, the Philips Ambition 1.5T is one of the best available options on the market. Using this machine, radiologists can achieve better image clarity and resolution. Not only that, but this system provides superior patient comfort and safety compared to other models.

The MRI utilizes a helium-free, permanent magnet system for improved accuracy and performance. This is achieved by providing an ultra-low field level that produces clearer images with less noise than traditional magnets.

This Philips Ambition 1.5T also features an advanced design, which makes it much easier to operate. Its lightweight and slim profile provide superior maneuverability around the patient, while its ergonomic shape is designed for maximum comfort.

Baptist Health Medical Center-Arkadelphia has been committed to serving the residents of southwest Arkansas since 1981. The 25-bed hospital provides comprehensive services including emergency services, CT scan, MRI, digital mammography, labor and delivery, orthopedics and sleep studies.
