Brighton, CO (March 11, 2016) – In order to better service patients, referring physicians and the entire Brighton community, Spectrum Medical Imaging, a new outpatient diagnostic imaging services provider, is very pleased to announce its opening on March 14, 2016.   Spectrum Medical Imaging is located in the new Medical Plaza Two medical office building on the Platte Valley Medical Center campus.

Spectrum Medical Imaging was professionally designed to meet patient needs in several different ways:

  • Being away from the main hospital entrance, patients will enjoy easier center access, including a convenient patient drop-off, a front door, main floor location, and less congested parking options.
  • Technologically, Spectrum will offer a full range of diagnostic radiology services. We have chosen the Hitachi Oasis MRI – a one of a kind MRI that provides high field imaging with an open design benefiting all patients including those with claustrophobia and obesity issues.   Breast Imaging will be performed using the latest 3D Tomography (mammography) technology.   The center will also provide Ultrasound, X-Ray and Bone Density (Dexa) studies.  All equipment will be American College of Radiology Accredited and the exams will be interpreted by Board Certified Radiologists
  • With high deductible health care plans increasing in popularity, patients are more interested in the cost of their medical exams now than ever before. As such, Spectrum Medical Imaging was specifically designed as a “value- based” center.   Patient costs – including payor reimbursements, out of pocket deductibles and self-pay expenses – will all be at competitive price points.   No longer will patients have to travel to Denver or other areas of town to save money.

Clinical Manager for Spectrum Medical Imaging, Coleen Castle, explains her excitement for the center’s opening, “Brighton is a very close knit community.  We love our home town and it holds a special place for all of us.  There’s no reason the residents of our community should travel outside of our community for quality and affordable healthcare.  With the opening of Spectrum Medical Imaging, patients can experience a more convenient option and referring physicians can experience a higher level of service, with the latest in medical technology and all at a lower cost. ”

Spectrum Medical Imaging will provide MRI, Ultrasound, X-Ray, Bone Density and 3D Tomography (mammography) services.  CT studies will be performed in the radiology department at Platte Valley Medical Center.
