New MRI Suite opens on Ground floor of Dahod Building October 1st

Our new MRI suite features the latest in technology, with a new 1.5T Open MRI from Philips Healthcare, so we can perform high-quality magnetic resonance scans with a high level of comfort for our patients. Routine and complex MRI exams can be performed in considerably less time than with other magnetic resonance systems in a more comfortable setting for patients. The Philips 1.5T magnet has advanced technology that digitizes the signal directly, enabling radiologists and referring physicians to receive superb image quality in less time, and the open bore MRI system allows patients to see the exam room and communicate with medical staff, all the time offering patients generous elbow and head room.

The latest technology at a better price means more value for our patients. Our partnership with Shields MRI helps Lowell General Hospital in our commitment to putting patients first in everything we do. For more information, visit and click on "MRI".

NOTE: The current MRI suite, located near our Physician and Occupational Therapy Units, will be closed effective October 1st.
