The work being done to get the MRI machine up and running is right on schedule, according to a communications specialist with Shared Health.

Work on completing the necessary connections from the machine to the physical infrastructure of the building is ongoing. After the connections are completed, the MRI machine will undergo a validation period.

Providing there are no unforeseen complications, Shared Health anticipates they'll be able to start scanning patients early next month, and be able to achieve full clinical operation shortly after.
