Lakeview Regional Medical Center is one of the first medical facilities in the region to incorporate the new Cinema Vision Virtual Reality System into MRI procedures. This helps claustrophobic and pediatric patients tolerate exams better while preventing the need for sedation as a prelude to MRI testing.
