This new technology helps lower the patient’s radiation exposure while receiving imaging at our facility. This radiation protection is extremely beneficial to our patients who require regular scans.

Keeping our patients in our facility, instead of needing our patients transferred to other locations for radiology services, minimizes the travel, which could be difficult for some.
With in-house imaging services, all members of the patient’s medical team have quick access to the images and the reports our radiologists deliver.
