Siemens gains first U.S. install for Essenza MRI
Battlefield Imaging of Ringgold, Ga., has completed the first U.S. installation of the Magnetom Essenza from Siemens Healthcare.

The Essenza is the premier choice for small hospitals, outpatient imaging centers, or anyone else looking for a cost-effective way to offer MRI services, Siemens said.

"With a nationwide surge in demand for MR imaging -- due to its ability to provide essential diagnostic information across a range of clinical specialty areas -- we have been unable to keep pace with the imaging demands of our community," said John Nelson, MD, medical director of Battlefield Imaging. "With the Magnetom Essenza we were able to afford a new system, greatly expanding access to imaging diagnostics and, ultimately, improving patient care."
