A NEW MRI is coming to Trillium- your donations made it possible!
Over 6,000 gifts from our community heroes have helped Trillium purchase a new MRI. Thanks to generous donors like you, we can ensure that patients from across the region have increased access to high quality MRI diagnostics for a wide range of conditions and diseases.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of the best choices among the “diagnostic arsenal” used in detecting, diagnosing and treating challenging conditions and diseases. Technological advances in MR imaging over the last decade have dramatically improved the quality of MR imaging. When used before surgeries, MRI can help to significantly improve outcomes and reduce the patient’s surgical time.
Construction has now begun to bring the new MRI machine to Trillium Health Centre-Mississauga and to co-locate it next to our existing scanner, situated in the Diagnostic Imaging Department. The space will be expanded and reconfigured to accommodate a new patient waiting area and reception station; patient preparation rooms and rooms to house system accessories and equipment. All thanks to the support of our generous community!
The new MRI is expected to be in service by Fall 2012….so stay tuned!
