Marshall Medical offers:
High Field Strength MRI
Used for scans of any type,but is clearly the scanner of choice for advanced MRI imaging such as breast MRI,perfusion imaging and cardiac imaging in which high field strength is a must.
Most often used to diagnose or stage cancer,this scanner eliminates the need for separate PET and CT scans. Both tests are done at the same time,reducing test time and inconvenience. The dual imaging capability of multi-slice PET and CT allows for improved imaging accuracy which gives the radiologist more overall information of your anatomy. This high volume of dual imaging provides more confidence in the overall findings of each case,thus giving you peace of mind that the radiologist is clearly seeing small tumors that may be present.
Computerized Tomography (CT)
CT is the fastest growing and constantly changing imaging modality in the world of medicine. Our multi-slice CT scanners have dramatically changed the length of the scan time as well as the volume and quality of the images that are produced. Many of our scans produce image slices which are only 1 millimeter apart. Due to the breakthrough of multi-slice CT,there are many applications that are being routinely used which were unheard of in our area just five years ago. While there are many new and exciting imaging applications that our scanners are capable of performing,virtual colonoscopy currently leads the pack of "wow" CT imaging procedures. This revolutionary technology is a complement to conventional colonoscopy that features an end result series of thinly sliced images that can be viewed on a computer in a way that allows the radiologist to "fly through" the colon forward or backward and view the colon in a 3-D perspective in a 360° radius.
