ScanMed has received approval from the Food and Drug Administration for a new line of coils used in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) industry.

The approval allows the Sarpy County-based company that engineers, manufactures, repairs and refurbishes MRI coils to start marketing the new line. It’s designed for detailed images of the hand, wrist, foot and ankle.

ScanMed founder and CEO Randy Jones said in a statement that the clearance allows the company “to quickly grow its manufacturing capabilities, expand alongside ScanMed’s service teams and deliver clearer MRI images of these specific extremities.” Located at 144th Street and Interstate 80, the company employs 33 people, up from about 25 in December.
