Southampton Hospital’s Department of Radiology provides a wide array of advanced technologies at both the Hospital and its satellite facilities. All modalities are accredited by the American College of Radiology and the Department is staffed by Board-Certified and Fellowship-trained Radiologists. Test results will be sent to your physician.
MRI/High Definition Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Our state-of- the-art, GE Optima MR 450W with GEM 1.5T System, offers a range of new functionality, within a patient-friendly environment. MRI applications include: Body (including EOVIST ® Liver Imaging), Neurological/Spinal, Orthopedic/extremity, Vascular/MR Angiography, and Breast (with Biopsy if indicated). MRI with IV Sedation (adult and pediatric) is also available.
CT/Computed Tomography: Our GE Optima 660 64-slice CT unit offers one of the
fastest scanning capabilities on the market with new low-dose radiation
capabilities. Our versatile CT delivers uncompromising image quality. In
addition to standard applications, advanced applications available include CT
Angiography and 3D vascular imaging.
Nuclear Medicine: Nuclear imaging services are available at the Hospital only. Our single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is an imaging
technique that provides 3D information to diagnose and determine the severity
of a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, heart disease, and gastrointestinal, endocrine, and neurological disorders, as well as other abnormalities
within the body. DaTscan™ is the first and only FDA-approved visual adjunct
imaging agent to aid in the differentiation between Essential Tremor and
Parkinsonian Syndromes. Check with your primary care physician and your
insurance provider before calling for an appointment. Our Nuclear Medicine
department also provides Radioactive Seed Localization (RSL) of Breast Tumors.
The new Discovery PET/CT 610 is the latest system
from General Electric and offers true 64-slice CT capabilities alongside ultra-high sensitive digital PET detectors. It allows high-resolution
imaging with low-dose CT radiation in short acquisition times. This new PET/CT scanner is Southampton Hospital’s entrance into our cancer services program that
will help be an important tool to diagnosing primary and metastatic disease as
well as following patient progress from detection to post-treatment follow-up.
Interventional Radiology: Services include diagnostic and interventional angiography, stent insertion and percutaneous biopsy.
Ultrasound: Southampton Hospital offers a complete range of imaging including 3D and 4D ultrasound, percutaneous ultrasound-guided biopsy, and 3D shear wave elastography.
Breast Imaging: The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. The latest screening and diagnostic imaging technologies are available, including full-field 3D Mammography/Digital Tomosynthesis with Computer Aided Detection (CAD) and MRI with CAD. Advanced diagnostics include stereotactic ultrasound and MRI-guided core biopsy, vacuum assisted core biopsy and fine needle aspiration biopsy. A dedicated Board-certified Breast Surgeon is on staff.
Bone Densitometry: Osteoporosis is a growing healthcare crisis affecting millions of women and men worldwide. When detected early, it is treatable. Southampton Hospital offers the Hologic Dexa System for bone density testing, a safe and non-invasive procedure.
