With advanced technology and expert technicians, imaging services at Resolute Health Hospital provides essential testing to help with diagnosis and treatment. Before, during and after your diagnostic imaging, we work to provide you with a relaxing experience in a safe and compassionate environment.
Our Range of Services
Resolute Health’s certified radiologists provide a range of vital imaging, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, computed tomography (CT) scans, ultrasounds, 2-D and 3-D mammography, nuclear medicine scans and X-rays.
In addition to diagnosis, image guidance may be used in some procedures to help ensure accuracy. You’ll have a quick turnaround of test results, with your doctor receiving a report of our findings within 24 hours.
Breast MRIs uses radio waves to generate detailed images of your breast. It’s usually performed in addition to a mammogram to provide your doctor with an enhanced view of your breasts to aid in diagnosis and screening for women at high risk of breast cancer.
CT is a noninvasive medical exam that gives the radiologist a way to see inside your body using X-rays and computers. CT scans take a 2-D image that can also be presented as 3-D for a more in-depth evaluation. These scans are generally used when a doctor suspects a medical problem that can’t be found with a routine physical examination.
Mammography is medical imaging that uses low-dose ionizing radiation to see inside the breasts. Mammograms are instrumental in the early detection and diagnosis of breast disease in women. Resolute Health Hospital uses digital mammography to ensure a lower radiation dose and offers breast tomosynthesis, or 3-D mammography, which provides much greater detail when compared to a standard 2-D mammogram.
In addition, if a lump is found that needs further testing, Resolute Health Hospital offers stereotactic (mammography-guided) and ultrasound-guided biopsy to help pinpoint the tissue to be removed.
An MRI is a noninvasive, painless procedure that uses radio waves and powerful magnets to show clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues, without using radiation. These pictures are able to show the difference between normal and diseased tissue, making it a valuable tool in diagnosing cancer, heart and vascular disease, stroke, breast disease and join and musculoskeletal disorders.
Nuclear Medicine Scan
Nuclear medicine scans give doctors a detailed image that evaluates organ function and helps to locate and diagnose disease, infection, fracture or tumors. Types of nuclear medicine scans include cardiac, thyroid, lung, bone, renal and liver scans.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, nuclear medicine can also be used to identify the sentinel nodes — the first lymph nodes to which cancer is most likely to spread.
Ultrasound provides a fast way to see organs and soft tissue without exposure to ionizing radiation. Using sound waves sent into the body, the “echoes” bounce back and are displayed as an image on the ultrasound monitor. While these are often used for prenatal exams, they can also be used to examine organs in the abdomen. A Doppler ultrasound may also be used to evaluate major blood vessels such as the aorta.
An x-ray uses radiation to create a two-dimensional picture that can help find fractures, tumors and foreign objects. Dense structures, such as bone, will block most x-ray particles and will appear white on the image. Muscle, fat and fluid will appear as shades of gray on the final image.
