New Sports Medical Center Features ETS-Lindgren MRI Technology

GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Illinois, January 17, 2008- The Texas Center for Athletes is a $12 million, 133,000 square foot sports medicine complex recently built next to the San Antonio Spurs’ practice facility. The most technologically advanced sports medicine facility in South Texas, this 3-story medical treatment and research facility treats spine, foot, ankle, shoulder, and hand injuries. It also houses plastic surgery, sports dentistry and nutritional specialist professionals. “It is a one stop shop for athletes that can treat them from head to toe,” says Dr. David Schmidt, San Antonio Spurs team physician. Not only is the facility a one stop shop for athletes, it is meant to be the catalyst for more development in the area and the start of San Antonio's future in sports medicine.

Key features of the suite include copper shielding, a cell type floor, a 3’x3’ RF window, and most notably, ETS-Lindgren's specialty – an MRI RF shielded door. This new, lightweight door, Model MRDS, builds upon ETS-Lindgren's 30+ year history of providing innovative shielded doors for its MRI facilities.
