Lower MRI Prices at Vail Health

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners use a powerful magnetic field (magnetism), radio waves and a computer to produce detailed three dimensional pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. The images can then be examined on a computer monitor or printed. MRI scans do not require x-ray radiation and are noninvasive, usually painless medical tests.

Vail Health has lowered its MRI prices significantly, "self pay" patients, either those without insurance or those choosing to forgo using their insurance, can receive a 25% discount off their MRI price. The cash price also includes the radiology reading fee (some imaging centers do not).

A New CT Scanner for Vail Health

Vail Health Hospital uses the Toshiba Aquilion Prime SP CT scanner in the imaging department. Vail Health Hospital is the first hospital in Colorado to bring this 160-slice scanner to its patients. The upgraded equipment minimizes radiation exposure, maximizes safety and image quality and increases patient comfort.
 
Radiation exposure is automatically adjusted to minimize exposure based on a patient's age, weight and exam type. The scanner is also quicker and can examine several body parts during the same exam to reduce exam time and radiation.
   
The new CT uses wider detectors to cover more area and complete scans faster so less radiation is needed. It also shows contrast better than other systems so physicians can distinguish soft tissues and other details more clearly through Deep Learning Reconstruction.
 
A longer, wider table supports larger patients and provides a more extensive area for scanning without repositioning them. Aquilion's gantry also tilts to provide easier access to patients and helps avoid unnecessary exposure to critical organs such as the eyes.
