Medland Hospital offers its patients a wide spectrum of radiology and imaging services with accurate and timely results.
Medland Hospital exclusively uses digital x-ray imaging. During patient examination, the x–ray sensitive plates capture data and immediately transfer it to a computer system which enables fewer repeats and a higher image quality.
The generated images are assessed by our radiologists using high resolution monitors which allows side-by-side comparison with previous results.
All our patient’s imagery is stored in our digital archiving system.
Computerized tomography (CT) scans use computerized x-ray imaging to produce cross-sectional images of various body parts such as bones, vessels, and soft tissues, and diagnose a wide array of medical problems. Medland Hospital uses advanced 128 Slice CT imaging which is faster and provides more detailed information. Our machine is capable of Coronary Angiography examinations as well as advanced brain and peripheral vascular examinations.
CT scans are frequently used in the settings of disease diagnosis, trauma, abdominal or chest pain, sinus pain, or cancer evaluation. They are also valuable in the planning of medical procedures and their assessment.
This imaging technique uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the body’s inner structures without damaging tissues with radiation.
Ultrasound is used for a variety of medical applications to diagnose a wide spectrum of conditions including gallstones, abdominal traumas, liver and kidney diseases, urinary blockage and uterine fibroids.
In pregnancies, ultrasound is used to monitor fetal development. Vascular ultrasound is used to evaluate blood flow in the arteries and veins and detect thrombus.
Mammography at Medland Hospital uses low-dose x-rays along with digital processing, and computer aided diagnosis to produce detailed images of breast tissue. It is used to aid in examining the breasts for screening and cancer detection.
Our mammography services include: screening mammography, diagnostic mammography, diagnostic breast ultrasound, breast biopsy under ultrasound guidance, and breast needle localization (prior to breast surgery).
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique which uses magnetic field and radio waves to generate detailed images of organs and tissues inside the body.
Unlike X-rays and CT scans, MRIs do not use the damaging ionizing radiation. MRIs are used to help diagnose injuries and diseases, especially ones related to soft tissues and the nervous system, as well as the responsiveness of patients to medical treatments.
At Medland Hospital, our services are designed to provide our patients with the utmost convenience:
- Open MRI to accommodate claustrophobic patients
- An ergonomical table for the comfort of our patients
- High-quality digital images readily available after scans
Bone Density Test
This test measures the mineral bone density in the body and helps determine the patient’s bone loss resulting from aging or the use of certain medications.
Interventional Image-guided Procedures
Our Radiologists are highly specialized in performing image-guided interventions with ultrasound or CT guidance such as such as biopsies and drainage procedures. The aforementioned procedures are usually performed in the outpatient unit under local anesthesia.
Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS)
The Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is a medical imaging technology which enables the convenient storage, easy access and timely transmission of images from multiple modalities (source machine types) to different physical locations while maintaining the original image quality.
With PACS, electronic images and reports are digitally stored and transmitted in DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine).
