Medical Imaging – Hanford
The latest technological equipment for diagnostic purposes is available through the imaging departments at Adventist Medical Center – Hanford, the Breast Care Center and the Lab and Imaging Center at the Hanford Medical Pavilion. Compassionate, state-of-the-art care is the goal of our imaging physicians, technologists and staff.
Computed Tomography (CT)
Incorporating multi-slice technology, this GE 16-Slice CT scanner completes an entire exam during one breath hold. Less time means less error and greater patient comfort, and a higher-resolution scan.
PET, or Positron Emission Tomography, uses radiation, or nuclear medicine imaging, to produce three-dimensional, color images of the functional processes within the human body.
PET can help diagnose a disease often before it shows up on other tests. It can also show the progress of a disease as well as the body’s response to treatment. It is often used to diagnose and assess the treatment of cancer as well as to assess coronary artery disease and myocardial viability.
Our MINDRAY M5 diagnostic ultrasound system provides extraordinary performance to suit a broad range of clinical needs. The M5 offers brilliant color imaging and excellent 2D performance to generate higher-quality images.
Our GE fluoroscopy system combines traditional X-ray
technology with a digital process that reduces patient exposure to
radiation and results in state-of-the-art detailed images. The equipment
improvements allow physicians to perform exams fast and with greater
Our MRI scanning system produces high-quality images that reveal the finest details. Patients appreciate its larger opening and enjoy a peaceful island scene on the ceiling. Its high-resolution imaging provides physicians with the information they need for accurate diagnoses.
Swiss Ray X-ray
Our Swiss Ray X-ray multisystem machine is the most advanced digital
X-ray available and provides superb results faster than conventional
machines. Combined with our state-of-the-art imaging systems, X-rays
are reviewed more quickly than previously possible.
