Meeting the needs of a growing and aging population
The newly expanded and renovated Diagnostic Imaging Department includes the addition of an Open MRI system; a 320-slice CT scanner; a new, completely digital X-ray department; and two new flouroscopy machines. These upgrades to the department translate to lower doses of radiation and faster processing of images with no sacrifice to image quality. A special waiting area for inpatients allows for private, comforable, preparation of exams and is staffed by a registered nurse. Our new reception area offers a large, private seating area with easy access from our new Ambulatory Care Center and new main entrance.
Diagnostic Imaging includes several sub-sections of specialty including:
- General Radiology, including digital X-ray, trauma and fluoroscopy procedures
- Interventional Radiology, which assists in the diagnosis and treatment of disease
- Ultrasound, which uses high frequency sound waves to image various parts of the body.
- Breast Imaging, including mammography and ultrasound
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), which uses a large magnet, radiofrequency signals and computers to produce magnetically generated images.
If you are scheduled for an MRI procedure, you must complete an MRI Screening Form. For your safety, you must disclose the presence of any metal objects or fragments in your body. Failing to provide proper disclosure could result in serious injury. Please download and complete the MRI Screening Form and bring it with you to your appointment. Please contact your physician if you have any questions or concerns.
- Computed Axial Tomography (CT), which uses cross-sectional views to create a multidimensional view of the body. This includes cardiac scoring.
- Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in which images demonstrate the chemistry of organs and other tissues such as tumors
- Nuclear Medicine, which uses small amounts of radioactive materials to document organ function and structure
