Quality you can trust
We are a Joint Commission Accredited Healthcare Organization, and we have achieved accreditation by the American College of Radiology in mammography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and CT scanning.
All imaging procedures are supervised and interpreted by fellowship-trained, board-certified radiologists. Our imaging services are obtained and managed by a fully digital environment, often referred to as PACS, Picture Archive and Communications System. PACS allows your physician to access digital images and view your test results from anywhere there is internet access. This system enables healthcare providers to get vital imaging results and information about your health faster, allowing them to provide more efficient and effective medical care.

Our imaging services
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. Individual particles, called photons, pass through the body and are detected by a highly sensitive imaging plate that is transmitted into a sharp digital image.
Fluoroscopy obtains real-time “moving” images of a patient’s internal organs and structures.
Computed tomography (CT scan)
This type of scan combines thin cross-sections of digital images in multiple planes to provide detailed diagnostic information in all areas of the body. Biopsies and other treatments can be performed using CT scanning.
Ultrasound utilizes high-frequency sound waves to display moving, 3D images of the inside of the body on a monitor. No radiation is involved with ultrasound imaging procedures.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquires images of the body using powerful magnets and radiofrequency waves. It can reveal medical conditions and better details of soft-tissue anatomy that are not easily diagnosed through X-ray, ultrasound or CT scans.
A powerful camera is used to generate crystal-clear images to quickly detect and characterize disease. Nuclear medicine provides more information in terms of physiological or actual functions within the body as opposed to just anatomical.
Mammography uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. A mammogram is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases.
