State-of-the-art imaging in a personalized and healing environment.
Griffin Hospital's Department of Radiology 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 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 open 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 Hitachi Oasis 1.2 Tesla open MRI, produces excellent imaging results in a calming, comfortable environment.
The Radiology Department offers patients state-of-the-art mammography screening, ultrasound, PET (Positron Emission Tompgraphy) Scans, MRI and CT Scans in pleasing environment.
Griffin's 128-slice GE Optima 660 computed tomography system (CT Scan) provides unparalleled imaging quality and reduces the patient's time in the scanner. Griffin's 128-slice scanner was the first installed in Connecticut, and 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.
