M. R. Imaging Systems (MRIS) is owned by Patrick Fett and is the only locally owned MRI facility in Central Louisiana.
MRIS opened in April of 2000. MRIS was the first medical facility to be accredited by the ACR (American College of Radiology). This acceditation is the top honor given to medical facilities based on every protocol used in magnetic resonance imaging. Since its opening in 2000, MRIS has been granted this prestigious award consecutively every 3 years.
In July of 2013, MRIS began using a new high-field open air magnet designed and manufactured by Hitachi. The new open magnet is ideal for everyone including pediatric, geriatric, bariatric, and claustrophobic patients.
All of the techs at MRIS are M.R. certified. They use the utmost care and knowledge in helping patients complete each study. Once the images are completed, they are interpreted by some of the finest MRI fellowship trained radiologists in the world, including a chief resident of Harvard Medical School’s Radiology program and an adjunct professor in the department of Musculoskeletal Radiology at Johns Hopkins University.
