Radiology / Diagnostic Imaging
It's about People.
Frisbie Memorial's Imaging Department is staffed by board-certified radiologists and skilled technologists, all of whom maintain professional registry in their in disciplines. We provide compassionate care that is sensitive to patients' needs.
Its about Technology.
Our Radiology Department using the most up-to-date technology to provide a full range of diagnostic and treatment services. Frisbie Memorial Hospital was first in all North America to install the GE Optima CT660 128-slice scanner, and was recently awarded a three-year term of accreditation in computer tomography (CT). For more information on the accreditation, visit our News page.
Our new Toshiba Vantage Titan MRI provides for a more comfortable experience as it has a larger open bore (opening) design, and is nearly 50 percent quieter than other models. What's more, the Vantage Titan MRI has ability to perform more scans in a feet-first position.
It's about Trust.
The diagnostic imaging team at Frisbie Memorial Hospital cares about your safety, privacy and comfort. All exams are performed by a registered technologists, operating under radiologist supervision, in a warm and friendly environment. Radiologists read exams every day so your results are usually available to your provider within 24 hours.
MRI scans often require use of gadolinium-based contrast agents, especially for vascular studies called MR Angiograms (MRAs). While generally safe, these agents pose some risk, especially for patients with renal impairment. Our new Toshiba Vantage Titan MRI scanner includes proprietary contrasts-free MRA techniques. Fewer patients will now need gadolinium contrast, and patients who could not have MRA studies because of renal impairment will now be able to have them done safely without contrast.
