Cedars-Sinai Medical Center MRI Suite and Tech Gate

Los Angeles, California

The Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, Department of Radiology/Oncology required the replacement of two (2) existing outdated MRIs (MRI 3.0T and 1.5T). The new replacement equipment would continue to provide leading imaging service to the patients. The two existing MRIs are in the Lower Level of the Taper Imaging Building. This project will have impact on some adjacent spaces and will have an aggregate area of approximately 2,000 square feet. This project will be designed and constructed in separate phases.

For patient and staff safety, the Safety Zones required under the American College of Radiology Guidelines (ACR) were analyzed and a dedicated tech gate was installed at entrances to Zone 3.

To reduce the impact to operations, the MRI 3.0T, control room, and computer room were completed prior to the replacement of the MRI 1.5T. MRI 1.5T will be completed by fall 2021.
