Akron Children's Hospital Mahoning Valley today received a new state of the art MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) that was placed by crane in a special modular building designed for the piece of equipment. The equipment weighs 10,000 pounds and the whole unit will be up and running by the end of the year.
