ROCKPORT — Pen Bay Medical Center took delivery of a new MRI machine recently as part of an investment that includes a new 966-square-foot MRI suite and control room. The new MRI will allow PBMC to offer more advanced imaging close to home, including imaging for cardiac patients. The MRI also includes a number of “comfort suite” features – including customizable lighting, video and music – to help reduce anxiety and claustrophobia. Studies show that these features help patients relax and hold steadier during a scan, which leads to high quality images.

Construction workers cut out a section of exterior wall in the Pen Bay Medical Center Radiology and Imaging department in advance of the delivery of the new MRI machine.
