The Ultrasound department was awarded a three-year accreditation by the American College of Radiology for the areas of General Ultrasound, Gynecologic Ultrasound, Small Part Ultrasound, and Vascular Ultrasound. We ensure that each patient receives compassionate and individualized care, resulting in an exceptional experience.

Our staff consists of highly trained, nationally certified sonographers through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), and the facility features Philips iU22 Ultrasound. See more about our capabilities on our Ultrasound page.

The Center’s state-of-the-art Digital X-ray room is configured to meet the needs of geriatric, pediatric, and bariatric patients. Special radiation-reduction technology delivers the lowest dose possible while maintaining optimal imaging.

Our facility is equipped with a GE Lightspeed 16 slice scanner. This scanner has a larger bore to better accommodate bariatric patients. The Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology in both adult and pediatric imaging. All of our board-certified technologists have taken the pledge for both the Image Gently and Image Wisely Campaign.
