MMC’s radiology department offers the latest technology, including all-digital imaging which increases the speed at which test results are available, allows quick and easy access for physicians via the internet, and facilitates fast duplication for computer viewing. Board-certified or board-eligible physicians and MMC support staff provide CT scans, MRIs, X-Rays, bone density tests, nuclear medicine, mammograms, ultrasounds, CT and/or ultrasound guided biopsies, lumbar punctures, liver and renal ablations, and cyst drainage.
MMC offers a 64-slice CT scanner that allows for faster scans with a lower dose of radiation for most routine procedures. This cutting edge technology helps reduce the need for invasive procedures and sometimes can eliminate it altogether.
In early 2009, MMC installed Digital Mammography at our HealthPlex location. Digital Mammography takes a much higher quality image than Film/Analog Mammography that allows for earlier detection and better treatment planning. The HealthPlex also offers Bone Density testing, complete ultrasound services and CT scans, with regular X-Ray capability.
Our imaging services are open for scheduled testing from 7:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday at the main hospital and from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday through Friday at our HealthPlex facility. For services needed outside business hours, our hospital provides 24/7 coverage.
Board-certified or board-eligible radiologists perform a variety of procedures supported by our highly trained staff. Among the services offered are: PICC lines; peripheral vascular run-off, vascular embolizations; dialysis catheter insertions; and vascular angioplasty and stents.
Cardiac and Vascular studies
Memorial’s Special Services department provides a wealth of diagnostic testing services performed by registered technicians in collaboration with your physician. All of our technicians are registered. Among the many tests and studies we offer are ECGs, EEGs, EMGs, cardiac stress, pulmonary function, nerve conductor, vascular, echocardiography, Holter set, and arterial studies. Properly conducted testing leads to information that is the foundation for a proper diagnosis and that is what our skilled team delivers to you and your doctor.
