Kelsey-Seybold Clinic adds to its state-of-the-art reputation

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic is staying one step ahead when it comes to cutting-edge diagnostic technology. On June 2, Kelsey-Seybold leaders and Radiology team members, along with GE partners, hosted a ribbon cutting to unveil two, new, state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines.

Steve Huang, M.D., Radiologist Managing Physician for MRI and CT; James Hoyle, M.D., F.A.A.P., F.S.A.H.M., Medical Director of Clinical Operations; and Cathy Cunningham, Director of Cross Sectional and Molecular Imaging, are poised to cut the ribbon.

The new GE 1.5T Artist and 3T Architect MRI machines replaced older machines that had been in service for more than 15 years, the typical lifespan of MRI machines. Some of the unique features of these new machines include the ability to scan feet first – which helps reduce claustrophobia – and the addition of the AIR Coils , which are light and flexible making them more comfortable for the patient and easier to handle for the technologist.

“The investment in the new MRI units is important to Kelsey-Seybold to stay competitive and to continue to provide state-of-the-art imaging to our patients,” said Cathy Cunningham, Director of Cross Sectional and Molecular Imaging. “We chose the GE MRI platform based on the new imaging technology and improved patient comfort features.”
