MRI steam plume

In preparation for the arrival of a new MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) later this year, Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital will be de-energizing the current MRI on Monday morning, January 9.  During the de-energizing process, helium is released through a roof vent – there is no danger to the surroundings but a plume of steam that could look like smoke will be visible (see photo).

QNHCH currently has a temporary MRI located on the hospital campus that will used until the new MRI is installed later this year.
