JASPER, Ga. (June 23, 2011) – Piedmont Mountainside Hospital Outpatient Center now offers magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as part of its comprehensive imaging services. MRI allows physicians to view areas inside the body with great accuracy; detecting problems within muscles, joints and other soft tissue. Piedmont Outpatient Center is located at 309 Highland Parkway in East Ellijay, Ga.
“This expansion of the Piedmont Outpatient Center helps us better serve our patients in North Georgia,” said Mike Robertson, president and CEO of Piedmont Mountainside Hospital. “Rather than traveling out of their way to the hospital for advanced imaging services, most of the orders given by physicians can now be filled in a convenient outpatient setting.”
Piedmont Outpatient Center offers comprehensive radiology and imaging that includes bone densitometry, CT scan, digital mammography, echocardiography, routine X-Ray, ultrasound and MRI. Physicians often refer patients to the outpatient center model as it is quick and efficient for their patients.
