NJRA recently completed a new MRI facility inside the Intermountain Medical Center. This new MRI facility was provided in an effort to provide a more comfortable and stress-free experience to the many patients that this facility serves each year. In addition to the MRI machine itself being more spacious, the room environment can be customized to the patients preferences. There is also music and television that can be controlled by the patient.
