Aurora MRI system available in Tennessee hospital
Mary Ellen Locher Breast Center within the Memorial Health Care System has installed Aurora Imaging Technology’s 1.5-Tesla dedicated breast MRI system.

The Aurora system is accessible to patients in Chattanooga, Tenn. and its surrounding areas at the 12,000 square foot women’s center. The FDA-cleared dedicated breast MRI system is developed for the detection, diagnosis and treatment monitoring of breast disease.

The North Andover, Mass.-based Aurora said its system features a precision gradient coil design to provide a homogeneous elliptical field of view to image the breasts, the chest wall and axillae in a single bilateral scan. 

Memorial Health Care System, a not-for-profit, faith-based healthcare organization dedicated to the ministry of the Catholic Church, serves as a regional referral center with 4,000 associates and more than 700 affiliated physicians providing healthcare throughout southeast Tennessee and north Georgia.
