At Carilion Clinic, some of our most groundbreaking new innovations in imaging and radiation services include:
64-Slice CT, which provides more highly precise images than standard CT scanning.
3T MAGNETOM Verio MRI, a larger than normal MRI scanner that accommodates people up to 550 pounds and allows for greater comfort for individuals of all shapes and sizes, reducing anxiety, discomfort, claustrophobic reactions along with the need for sedative medication.
Digital mammograms in addition to standard analog ones.
A mammogram uses low energy x-rays to generate images of your breast tissue. Carilion's skilled health care professionals will examine these images to screen for breast cancer or evaluate symptoms such as lumps or thickening. A typical mammogram takes about 20 minutes.
