Jefferson Radiology Implements Groundbreaking MRI Technology to Reduce Exam Time by Up to Half

Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Jefferson Radiology, a leading radiology practice in Connecticut, is revolutionizing the patient experience through the implementation of cutting-edge MRI technology that significantly reduces exam times. This new state-of-the-art equipment will be available at five Jefferson Radiology locations throughout the year, enhancing patient experience and diagnostic efficiency. As the first radiology practice in the region to offer these expedited MRI exams, Jefferson Radiology demonstrates its dedication to elevating patient care and improving overall healthcare outcomes.

"Through this groundbreaking MRI technology, we're proud to offer our patients more efficient exams without compromising accuracy and quality of our diagnostic services," said Ethan Foxman, M.D., President of Jefferson Radiology. "Our commitment to providing exceptional patient care is at the core of everything we do, and this technological advancement is a testament to that."

The innovative MRI technology dramatically reduces exam times for common MRI scans, including:

  • Brain MRI: 30 minutes (previously 45 minutes)
  • Chest MRI: 30 minutes (previously 60 minutes)
  • Feet MRI: 30 minutes (previously 60 minutes)
  • TSpine MRI w/wo: 30 minutes (previously 60 minutes)
  • Long Bone MRI: 30 minutes (previously 60 minutes)

These reduced appointment times represent a significant leap forward in patient convenience, minimizing the stress and anxiety often associated with lengthy medical imaging procedures. By cutting exam times by up to 50%, Jefferson Radiology is increasing patient comfort and maximizing the efficiency of their highly skilled clinical teams, allowing for more patients to be treated in a shorter time.

This new technology is now available at the Avon and Farmington locations and will be available at the Glastonbury location in June, followed by Enfield and West Hartford in July. For additional information on this new technology and the locations offering it, visit
