Questar Imaging of Tampa, FL, is planning to establish two open MRI facilities in the Kansas City, MO, area in a joint venture with Magnetic Imaging, a subsidiary of Health Midwest of Kansas City. The facilities will be part of Questar's OpenScan MRI network, which provides open MRI services to hospitals as an adjunct to existing hospital services (SCAN 9/25/96). The centers are scheduled to be in operation by the middle of this year.

Questar has established seven OpenScan centers in the U.S., with three more (including the Kansas City sites) scheduled to go online this year. Questar is also in negotiations with partners to establish another seven OpenScan sites.
