What is an MRI?

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a specialized imaging test that uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed 3D images of organs and structures inside your body. Healthcare providers use MRI to evaluate, diagnose and monitor several different medical conditions not visualized well with other imaging tests. 

The Diagnostic Imaging team at PSFDH is very excited to be able to offer state of the art MRI services to our patients we serve. This MRI enhances diagnosis and allows your treating physician to provide faster and better care.”

$6.1 M TOTAL OVER THREE YEARS COMMUNITY INVESTMENT IS REQUIRED TO BRING MRI TECHNOLOGY TO PSFDH

The PSFDH Foundation works with our community to raise and steward funds for projects and services for health care at our hospital.

Provincial government funding models do not cover equipment like an MRI. Generous donors – people like you – help us to maintain the high standard of patient care that we are proud of and expect from our hospital.

New equipment has a ripple effect, attracting new doctors and clinical staff to a community, along with new techniques and renewed economic prosperity.

Every dollar raised helps keep care close to home for our community!
