Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf Announces MRI Services

Posted: 6/27/2013

Port St. Joe, Fla. -- Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf initiated the first MRI diagnostic test in Gulf County on June 3, 2013.  A new, state-of-the-art mobile GE Signal 1.5 Tesla unit will be providing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) on Mondays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

MRI is an advanced diagnostic test that uses computers and magnetic fields, rather than radiation, to capture images of the human body.  Although MRI is a very advanced medical technique, the MRI is probably one of the easiest and most comfortable exams you may ever experience. The technologist will simply ask you to lie down on a cushioned table which will automatically move into the magnet after you have been comfortably positioned for scanning.

For certain studies, a contrast injection may be required. However, unlike many other contrast agents, MRI contrast does not contain iodine and therefore rarely cause allergic responses. The average scan takes 20-60 minutes dependent upon the specific test ordered.

Appointments are required.  To schedule a MRI at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf, call 229-5802.
