MRI expansion at Freeman hospital

Freeman Hospital unveiled a new MRI machine in Joplin, Wednesday. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of both a renovation and expansion of their MRI systems.

Freeman says the new system will be more precise, and the improvements will also reduce wait times for patient scans. The new machines are going to allow for imaging of smaller areas on the body which will help doctors discover potential cancer more easily.
