The expanding research collaboration between Carle and the University of Illinois has led to the formation of the Carle Illinois Advanced Imaging Center (CI MRI) and purchase of a Siemens Terra 7 Tesla (7T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner.
Carle joins an elite network of clinical facilities (currently one of only six nationwide) to give patients access to this technology, the highest magnetic field imaging strength commercially available in the United States that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for clinical use. In addition to housing the 7T (set to arrive in mid-2020), CI MRI will eventually house 3T and 1.5T Siemens scanners.
With doctors practicing in 80 specialties at locations throughout the region, it’s easy to find the right healthcare team at Carle. Our mission is to serve people through high quality care, medical research and education.
