Our DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING department provides a wide array of outpatient services, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. These services include:
- General Radiography – used to visualize the bones and soft tissues in the entire body in 2 dimensions.
- Fluoroscopy - used to visualize the esophagus, upper and lower gastro-intestinal tract, kidneys and bladder.
- Ultrasound - used to visualize the breast, organs and blood vessels in the neck, abdomen, pelvis and extremities
- Computerized Axial Tomography (CT) – used to visualize organs and blood vessels in the head, neck, lungs, spine, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities. Our scanner can also evaluate loss of bone density.
- Mammography – used to visualize breast tissue in both male and female patients.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Coming soon – used to visualize and evaluate organs and blood vessels in the body using magnetic energy instead of radiation.
CT – our NEW state-of-the-art Siemens Perspective 128 slice scanner, installed in August 2016 and provides:
- Significant radiation dose reductions with the CARE Dose4D - which enables acquisition of high diagnostic image quality. at the lowest possible dose for both adult and pediatric patients.
- Faster and more efficient scanning time.
- Information from 128 slices which can detect the smallest diagnostic details.
Mammo – Coming in November a new state-of-the-art digital 3D Mammography unit which will provide:
- PRIME Technology, with up to 30% less radiation dose and uncompromised image quality.
- Sharper breast images with more efficient workflow.
- Instant image pre-view.
- Tomosynthesis technology which shoots multiple breast images at once, creating a 3 dimensional dataset. This produces up to 140 image slices at 2mm each, which can be rolled through and viewed in different sections.
- Greater comfort for the patient with individualized “OpComp” which automatically stops compression when the breast tissue is no longer soft and pliable.
- A calming mood light LED panel which can be changed to the color of choice
