The Department of Radiology incorporates state-of-the-art imaging in a personalized and healing environment. Griffin Hospital has continually invested in the best diagnostic imaging equipment to insure that we provide cutting-edge technology. We employ only board certified, state licensed professionals to ensure that we consistently produce high quality examinations. Our board certified Radiologists, Cardiologists, and Neurologists work within their respective departments to interpret exams in a timely manner, thereby providing you and your physician with results as quickly as possible.
By offering an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) unit, Griffin is able to accommodate those patients who experience anxiety or claustrophobia with traditional MRI while not sacrificing the image results. The unit, a Siemens Symphony MRI, produces higher resolution results while allowing patients to keep their head outside of the magnet during the procedure.
The Radiology Department offers patients state-of-the-art low dose mammography screening, ultrasound, PET (Positron Emission Tompgraphy) Scans, MRI and CT Scans in pleasing environment.
Griffin's latest imaging modality is Griffin Hospital has acquired a GE LightSpeed16 computed tomography system (CT Scan) that provides highly detailed images of the human body in a much faster time, reducing the patient's time in the scanner. The LightSpeed16 CT scanner manufactured by GE Medical Systems allows doctors to simultaneously capture multiple wafer-thin images of a patient's anatomy within seconds, shaving minutes off the exam time. The system provides exceptionally high-resolution images that help doctors to more accurately diagnose patients than ever before.
