Ridgeview Medical Center offers a full range of advanced imaging services for hospital and ambulatory patients, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, diagnostic and screening mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, ultrasound and general and interventional radiography. A mobile positron emission tomography with computer tomography (PET/CT) scanner is available to assist physicians in diagnosing and evaluating treatments of a variety of cancers.
Equipped with the revolutionary 40- and 128-slice Siemens CT scanners, Ridgeview Imaging Services offers highly advanced three-dimensional reconstructions of body organs and major blood vessels.
The 40-slice scanner is used for interventional procedures. This system provides on-demand live 3-D imaging to assist radiologists in biopsy guidance. The 128-slice scanner is equipped with the necessary software for cardiac CT. Both scanners have specially designed software that reduces patient dose by 30 percent or more, dependent on the part of the anatomy that is scanned.
Ridgeview’s superb technology directly benefits patients and families through shorter scan times, higher-quality scans and quick turnaround on reports.
