Advanced MRI installed at IU neuroscience center

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An advanced new MRI system was installed at the Indiana University School of Medicine’s Neuroscience Center on Tuesday.

A large crane stood in front of the building at 16th and Missouri streets and lowered the new Siemens MRI system inside. It will be used for research and patient care.

Officials say the system is the most powerful MRI approved for the use of patients. They say IU is among the first three institutions in the U.S. to receive one.

Once lowered indoors, the system was rolled to the other end of the building to the imaging suite.
