Medical imaging is a specialty in which we use a range of procedures to diagnose and treat illnesses. These techniques and equipment are powerful and highly sensitive including 3D mammography, bone densitometry, PET/CT, CT (computed tomography) imaging, ultrasound, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), nuclear medicine, and plain film radiology.
In order to provide the right type of imaging and care for each patient, our physicians, technologists, and staff have further specialized in fields such as neuro-radiology, vascular and interventional radiology. From diagnosing osteoporosis and heart disease to treating migraines and cancer, we have invested in the experts, facilities and equipment to care for patients through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
In this video, one of our radiologists, Kyran Dowling, MD, explains radioembolization for liver cancer, where experts in imaging and radiology shrink cancer cells when surgery is not an option.
Our facilities at Bearden-Josey Center for Breast Health — Spartanburg and North Grove Medical Park use 3-Tesla MRI equipment for a faster, clearer, more advanced type of imaging to find tumors, internal bleeding, infection and injuries of bones and joints including the spine.
Room to Breathe
We offer “wide-bore” MRIs which are larger and more comfortable than traditional equipment at Bearden-Josey Center for Breast Health — Spartanburg, North Grove Medical Park and Pelham Medical Center.
