Longmont United Hospital installed a new MRI machine today that is expected to be up and running by the middle of November.

The 11,500-pound unit, which is bigger and requires patients to lay still for a shorter period of time, is part of a $3 million renovation of the hospital’s diagnostic imaging suite.

The old MRI machine was removed in June and sent to Argentina. Longmont United Hospital is currently using a temporary, mobile MRI unit.
