Unique in the Finger Lakes – Provides Advanced Imaging Capabilities and Unparalleled Patient Comfort

In keeping with Rochester General Health System’s (RGHS) commitment to deliver the highest quality care to Finger Lakes patients, RGHS affiliate Newark-Wayne Community Hospital has added advanced outpatient imaging technology that provides unique clinical and patient-focused benefits.

Physicians can order a scan using this technology by calling 315-332-2241

Innovative features of the new GE Optima MR450w magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner include an oversized chamber, feet-first testing (instead of the standard head-first patient alignment) and “Silent Scan” noise reduction for neurological exams. Additionally, the GE Optima Caring MR Suite allows patients to select a customized audio/visual environment with soothing music and pre-programmed themes including a forest, a field of sunflowers and an outer-space setting. Combined, these features reduce patient anxiety and ensure more effective examinations.

Newark-Wayne’s new MRI suite can generate high-quality images even for patients with metal joint replacements and other implanted devices – a limitation of previous-generation MRI testing. Flexible coils in the bed of the MR450w adapt to the patient’s body, to further enhance image quality.

Newark-Wayne is the first upstate New York hospital to offer this combined technology – ensuring that area patients with complex cases can receive high-quality MRI scans in a comfortable environment, without unnecessary out-of-town travel. “With its state-of-the-art imaging science and patient-focused comfort, this new MR suite is an ideal addition to Newark-Wayne,” said Rob Cercek, President of Newark-Wayne Community Hospital. “This innovative resource gives patients of the Finger Lakes, as well as the entire greater Rochester region, a close-to-home alternative for leading-edge diagnostic imaging.”

Physicians can order a scan using this technology by calling Newark-Wayne’s Imaging Department at (315) 332-2241.
