High-Quality Images to Diagnose and Determine the Right Treatment
We are patient friendly and work to meet the needs of your physician to give you the care you need.
You and your physician will have access to highly detailed and exceptionally high-quality images needed to diagnose and determine the right treatment for your illness or injury. Our high-resolution imaging is available to diagnose virtually every part of the human anatomy including cardiac, gastrointestinal, vascular, soft tissue and bone.
Your size, weight and anatomy are all taken into consideration to provide your physician with the high-quality images needed for your diagnoses and treatment with the lowest required radiation dose for your well-being.
Our technology is designed for your comfort. CHI St. Vincent has imaging technology that requires very short breath-holds resulting in faster and easier imaging procedures for you. Our goals are to give you high quality care, keep your examination time to a minimum and maximize your comfort.
Our Advanced Imaging Diagnostic Options include:
MRI is Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body.
CT is Computed Tomography. It uses x-rays to create pictures of cross-sections of the body.
PET/CT is Positron Emission Tomography. It uses a radioactive substance, called a tracer, to look for disease in the body.
Planar Nuclear Medicine requires delivery of a gamma-emitting radioisotope (called radionuclide) into the patient, normally through injection into the bloodstream. In addition it ‘attaches’ this isotope to an organ for further evaluation.
SPECT/CT is Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography. It is a nuclear medicine imaging technique using gamma rays which provides true 3D images.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs and systems within the body.
Fluoroscopy uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of your internal structures.
Mammography uses low-energy X-rays to examine the breast tissue. It is used as a diagnostic and screening tool.
Plain Film X-ray uses a form of electromagnetic radiation to produce a two-dimensional image showing a shadow of a body part on film.
Interventional Radiology uses minimally-invasive image-guided instruments to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system of your body.
C-Arms are X-ray image intensifiers which convert x-rays into a visible image.
Bone Densitometry uses X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone to determine your risk of breaking a bone.
