A new piece of high tech medical equipment is now in place at a Tulsa hospital, thanks to a high tech moving crew.

Workers gently hoisted this 13,500-pound magnet high into a window of the Orthopedic Hospital of Oklahoma. The job got a little more difficult when they had to move it through a window.

The magnet is part of a new imaging system that will give doctors incredibly clear images of the inside of the human body. The new MRI system should be up and running by July.
