2020-03-19 MRRC Status: Important Message

March 19, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

Based on the guidance from Pitt administration the MRRC will only be performing scans which are:

      1. Clinically scheduled MRIs for patient care
      2. Research scans for which the scan outcome is needed for monitoring or modifying care in a clinical trial

If you have a scan which does not fit into this group, but feel you have a highly compelling rationale, which we have not anticipated, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss.

When the circumstances resolve, we will reopen for scans.

For those worrying about making up for lost scans, I will remind you that our capacity will increase significantly when the OAI upgrade is completed. We are still targeting completion in early July, however I think we can all appreciate that is at best a guess.

Stay safe.

Hoby Hetherington
