(4/1/2013) In an effort to continually grow and enhance medical services to the people in Horry County and beyond, McLeod Seacoast is pleased to announce the new GE MRI is now being used to conduct patient testing.
McLeod Seacoast is currently the only facility in the Coastal Carolinas to have this revolutionary new machine. It offers patients more space for utmost comfort, including a cushion designed to alleviate pressure points. The comfortable, flexible cushion coils follow body contours while facilitating high resolution imaging of the entire body.
"We are excited to now be seeing patients and performing scans with our new MRI. It is the latest and greatest that GE has to offer. Patients of all sizes can be better accommodated, and patients who are plagued with claustrophobia will be more at ease in the spacious unit", said Reginald Cooks, Director of Radiology at McLeod Loris Seacoast. "We are now able to perform procedures at McLeod Seacoast, such as imaging of the abdomen and blood vessels that was previously only available at McLeod Loris."
To learn more about the new MRI, contact the Public Information office at McLeod Seacoast at 843-390-8325 or talk to your doctor.
