The Echelon Oval 1.5T MR system features the game-changing 74cm oval shaped bore. This new shape of MR is the widest bore available offering maximum patient accessibility and accommodation.

“We are very excited about our relationship with ProScan Imaging and are proud to see our first Echelon Oval installation in a facility dedicated to the best patient experience, service, excellence and quality,” said Sheldon Schaffer, Vice President and General Manager, MRI, HMSA.

ProScan Imaging is the first imaging center not only in the United States but in the world to install this new oval ultra-wide bore scanner. “The Echelon Oval High-Field system was chosen because of its quality, advanced technology and patient focus,” commented Mark Grossman, Chief Operating Officer at ProScan Imaging. “Bringing this new technology to Cincinnati and introducing its capabilities to the world demonstrates ProScan’s commitment to innovation, patient comfort and satisfaction.”

Designed around the human body, the Echelon Oval High-Field MR system provides the optimal patient experience with outstanding comfort, space and efficiency. “The Echelon Oval High-Field MRI raises the bar of care by giving the patient the comfort of an open MRI with the versatility and unique features that currently only exist on high-field MRIs. It gives the patients and their physicians the best of both worlds,” said Dr. Stephen J. Pomeranz, Chief Executive Officer and Medical Director of ProScan Imaging.

As ProScan Imaging continues its patient-centric mission to provide high-quality imaging services “Built Around You” (the patient), the organization looks forward to bringing additional technological advancements and new patient services to market while still offering patients lower costs compared to local hospital affiliates.
