The history of FirstMRI began with a vision that preceded the sophisticated technology, consummate professionalism, and welcoming facilities that are now the hallmark of the first MRI operation to be established north of Boston.

FirstMRI, located in the James B. Coffey Jr. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center on the Eastern Maine Medical Center campus, exists today because of the vision, ambition, and leadership of Dr. Francis I. Kittredge Jr.

Established in 1985, FirstMRI continues to move forward on the cutting edge of technology as more healthcare practitioners utilize the advantages of this diagnostic imaging modality.
