United Medical Imaging Brings MRI In-House

If you’ve been to the United Medical Imaging Center lately, you’ve noticed the construction. Well, it’s almost over! Beginning April 8, patients will have access to in-house MRI services. MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, uses radiofrequency waves and a magnetic field to provide physicians with precise images of the body. Up until now, the MRI has been housed in a self-contained semi-trailer outside the Apple Valley Medical Center, requiring patients to walk outside for their scan. Soon, they can receive MRI services inside the building. Use of the United Medical Imaging MRI has increased 12 percent each of the last four years. The new MRI is currently going through calibration and testing in preparation for its debut. Hours of operation will be 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday, with Saturday hours to be added soon. To schedule an MRI, check with your physician or contact 651-241-3850.
