Spectrum Medical Imaging will be Adding CT Services this Fall!

This summer you may see some work going on in and around our center as we prepare for upgrades and new CT services. With the addition of the new CT, Spectrum Medical Imaging will now be a full service imaging site, making all your imaging needs available in one central location.

Our new CT is a Toshiba Aquilion Prime 40 slice scanner that enables radiologists and physicians to see in thin sections throughout the body and identify abnormalities with more detailed precision. This advanced technology ensures our patients and community physicians receive top quality images to aid in more accurate diagnosis.

CT FAQs

1) When will this service be available?
We expect to start receiving our first patients beginning of September.

2) Will you accept pediatric patients for CT studies?

Yes! Spectrum Medical Imaging’s expert radiology group has board certified radiologists who specialize in pediatric imaging. Our center has also taken the Image Gently pledge that aims to
reduce radiation exposure with low-dose protocols and ensure maximized safety during every exam.

3) Will you offer CT exam to screen for lung cancer?
Yes! We will begin offering CT lung screening exams after our launch date. This exam does require a physician order so if you are a current or former smoker over the age of 55, you should
discuss this exam with your primary care doctor.

4) If I am diabetic will I need lab work before I have contrast/dye?
You will likely need new lab work unless you have had it done in the previous 30 days. However, for those requiring updated labs, Spectrum Medical Imaging offers this service on-site so you
can get labs and imaging completed in one easy appointment.
