AUSTIN, Texas—St. David’s North Austin Medical Center recently opened a new imaging center dedicated to outpatient care for all ages. Previously, the hospital combined both outpatient and inpatient imaging at one location in the building.
“As Northwest Austin continues to grow, so does the need for convenient and accessible healthcare,” Tom Jackson, chief executive officer of St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, said. “The new Outpatient Imaging Center has its own entrance and designated parking spaces, allowing patients quick and easy access.”
The Outpatient Imaging Center at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, located in the hospital’s south wing facing North MoPac, features two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suites and computerized tomography (CT), ultrasound, radiology and nuclear medicine.
One of the two MRI suites is equipped with an MRI system that is particularly beneficial for pathological conditions involving the brain, spine, breast and musculoskeletal system.
The new MRI suites feature a caring suite for children/adults, including flat screens to watch a movie or TV. Children can also listen to their favorite music with headphones that cancel out some of the loud noises of the 3T MRI unit.
