Offering convenient parking and same-day appointments on most exams, SMH Imaging utilizes an advanced Picture Archiving Communications System giving physicians and caregivers remote and simultaneous access to the most clear imaging available to enable better, faster diagnosis and treatment.
Digital Mammography with Image Checker Enhancement©
Far superior to analog film mammography,SMH Imaging Center's direct digital system provides clear, high-resolution images within seconds. The Image Checker Enhancement© is highly specialized, FDA-approved software that highlights image areas for closer review. *Please send all mammogram imaging requests by fax to (985) 280-5201.
Digital Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
SMH Women's Imaging Center offers an alternative to standard breast biopsy procedures. The MultiCare Platinum table allows patients comfort and addresses patient care during procedures. The center has a prone breast biopsy table offering the latest advances in stereotactic technology. It is the ideal system for characterization of calcifications, masses, and architectural distortion. The computer pin points calcifications to ensure accurate targeting for safe and easy access to most lesions, including chest wall and axillary regions. We welcome tours of our facility to decrease patient anxiety.
Siemens Magnetom Espree 1.5 (Open Bore) Symphony 1.5 Tesla MRI
These MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanners offer faster scan times, greater comfort, and are more powerful than the conventional MRI. The open design of this machine accommodates patients up to 450 pounds, eliminates anxiety and claustrophobia, and assures more accurate diagnoses.
Breast MRI System
Breast MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) noninvasively examines breast tissue to accurately detect abnormalities among women at high risk of breast cancer, recently diagnosed patients and those with dense breast tissue or implants. Breast MRI biopsy procedures are also available. Ask your physician if you are a good candidate.
PET/CT imaging combines Positron Emission Tomography with Computed Tomography and is the most advanced medical imaging technique available. By combining fine structural detail with the ability to detect changes in cell function, specialists are able to detect disease earlier and more accurately and target treatment more precisely. Many PET/CT procedures are covered by both Medicare and private insurance companies.
DEXA (Bone Density)
Because early detection of osteoporosis is critical, the DEXA bone density scan checks for early or advanced signs of the condition to ensure proper care for the best possible outcomes.
Computed Tomography (CT or "CAT” Scan) scanning is a noninvasive medical test combining x-rays and computers that is used to study almost any body organ, blood vessels, the abdominal cavity, bones and the spine.
Safe, simple and highly effective, ultrasound bounces high-frequency sound waves off parts of the body and captures the returning "echoes” as images to assess organs, especially in the abdomen, and screen for vascular disease.
SMH Imaging uses electronic files for all X-ray imaging to get patients and their doctors results more quickly, significantly accelerating diagnosis and treatment.
