Mobile MRI moves one step closer

A mobile Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) service is one step closer to arriving in Cowichan and other Island communities, the Vancouver Island Health Authority said.

According to a news release, a request for proposals has been issued by VIHA for the equipment that is used to perform the service.

Once up, the mobile MRI will be used between Alberni, Duncan, Campbell River, the Comox Valley.

VIHA expects the service to start this summer.
