Fujifilm Installs MRI Scanner Inside Paul Brown Stadium, Home to the Cincinnati Bengals
Installation of the Fujifilm Oasis High-Field Open MRI scanner upgrades capabilities and enhances care delivery for injured professional football players and the Cincinnati community
Twinsburg, OH & Cincinnati, December 8, 2021 – FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation, a leading innovator of diagnostic and enterprise imaging solutions, announced today it has installed an advanced Fujifilm Oasis Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system at ProScan Imaging, the medical clinic in the Paul Brown Stadium, home to the Cincinnati Bengals.
“Quality imaging expedites diagnosis and treatment for complicated fractures, soft tissue tears, concussions, and other injuries football players experience,” said Shawn Etheridge, executive director marketing, FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation. “With Fujifilm’s open MRI system on-site, injured players will have access to rapid, high-resolution exams, which can make all the difference in an athlete’s recovery.”
The Fujifilm Oasis MRI system is now installed and operational in the ProScan medical offices at the Paul Brown Stadium. It provides a state-of-the-art high-field open MRI experience, creating three-dimensional images of the body, which help radiologists precisely visualize and accurately analyze injury and disease. The system features an open design and a patient management system (82cm wide table and 660lb capacity) to accommodate patients of almost any size – even the largest lineman.
“We’re thrilled to work with FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas to provide our patients with access to an open scanner with capabilities that mirror that of a high field closed bore 1.5 tesla,” said Stephen Pomeranz, MD founder of ProScan Imaging. “The Fujifilm Oasis MRI system is designed to enhance comfort for patients of every size and engineered to improve image quality. This novel and exceptional capability is a healthcare-market differentiator for ProScan.”
Fujifilm’s innovative products align with ProScan Imaging’s mission to enhance patients’ lives with the most advanced and capable imaging technologies, promoting early diagnosis and prevention that can save lives.
Said Dr. Pomeranz: “The Fujifilm Oasis has decisively rounded out the technical portfolio in our statewide practice and either dovetails with a 3.0T or stands alone in the outpatient setting. Since MRI is typically a closed cylinder that sometimes requires that already-anxious patients lie in uncomfortable positions, having an Oasis Open MRI at the ready enhances our ability to provide quality patient care.”
In addition to its healthcare services for the Cincinnati Bengals, ProScan accepts general patient referrals to its stadium facility from local healthcare providers and physicians in the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area Monday through Saturday.
