Missoula now has access to new MRI exam technology


Feb 12, 2024

February is National Cancer Prevention Month, and with over 2 million Americans diagnosed with cancer last year, the need for effective prevention strategies is clear. According to data from the American Association for Cancer Research, about half of those cases could have been prevented. In light of this, Montana Imaging Center in Missoula is offering a new technology to help in the fight against cancer – a full body MRI exam.

This unique scan covers the entire body, from the head to the knees, and uses Artificial Intelligence to detect issues such as cancers, neurological disorders, liver diseases, and cardiovascular problems. Dr. Tim McCue, Radiologist in Chief at the center, highlights the value of this scan for individuals of all ages. Whether someone is older and concerned about potential cancer, or young and looking to be proactive about their health, the full-body MRI can provide peace of mind and early detection opportunities.

According to Dr. McCue, there are certain types of cancer, such as pancreatic and ovarian cancer, for which there are no effective screenings. This makes the full-body MRI particularly valuable for those looking to stay ahead of potential health issues. Montana Imaging Center has made this advanced technology available to the Missoula community, continuing their commitment to providing cutting-edge medical services.

The full-body MRI scans are now being offered at Montana Imaging Center, providing an important option for cancer prevention and overall health monitoring. To learn more about this new technology and how to schedule a scan, visit their website at https://montanaimagingcenter.com/.
