Middle Tennessee Imaging Murfreesboro recently expanded MRI services in its new location on the MTMC’s campus, the hospital announced this week.
With the help of a crain, the 15,000-pound GE 1.5 Tesla MRI was lifted into the Seton Medical Office Building and the Middle Tennessee Imaging Murfreesboro office on Monday.
The new MRI is capable of producing high quality detailed imaging for a large cross section of exams of the body, including brain, lumbar, thoracic, cervical spine, extremities, joints, abdomen and magnetic resonance angiography, according to the hospital’s announcement.
MRI provides good contrast between different soft tissues of the body, which makes it especially useful in imaging the brain, muscles, heart and cancers compared with other medical imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) or X-rays. MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the body. Unlike CT scans and traditional X-rays, no ionizing radiation is involved.
“We’re excited about adding this MRI to the center because it will improve scheduling and offer greater convenience for many patients who may need an MRI done while seeing physicians in nearby offices,” Dr. Max Moss, radiologist for Middle Tennessee Imaging Murfreesboro. “Many exams will be able to be performed the same day they are ordered.”

A new tool has been unveiled to help mortgage services manage default loans.
CoreLogic, a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, released a “new default-servicing platform to the mortgage industry that will streamline the way mortgage servicers manage loans through all stages of the default lifecycle.”
“DefaultView opens pathways between previously disconnected servicing functions, allowing a dynamic exchange of information across multiple departments,” a company news release states. “The platform offers nine modules that interconnect within its architecture to help provide a more efficient and transparent default servicing operation.”
The program uses a master-loan architecture that offers a singular view of a loan. This design enables end users across a default enterprise to easily see a complete transaction history including workflow steps, resulting data, outcomes and all related documents and messages. By enabling top-down transparency across all relevant default departments and functions, the platform simplifies reporting and strengthens management oversight.
According to Chris Howard, vice president of technology solutions for CoreLogic, the product will be useful for decision-makers at all levels within a mortgage servicer thanks to its flexibility and the breadth of its reach.
