Feasibility and Cost Analysis of Portable MRI Implementation in a Remote Setting in Canada
Cambridge University has published a ground-breaking study on a Portable MRI and its successful implementation in a remote setting.
“Implementation in a remote setting is feasible, with significant cost savings compared to fixed MRI. This study may serve as a model to democratize MRI access, offer timely care and improve triaging in remote areas where conventional MRI is unavailable.”
“The preliminary study findings can guide the implementation of portable MRI at other Canadian and international sites, especially in remote communities.”
A special thanks to Queen’s University, Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC), Institute of Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES), and Hyperfine Inc. for their contributions to this project.
We are excited to witness the benefits of this project as we continue to strive to provide the best health care possible for community members all around the James and Hudson Bay Area.
