Imaging and Radiology
At Dominican Hospital, we have an extensive array of leading-edge radiology capabilities to help us offer you a standard of care that is one of the highest in the Monterey Bay Region.
Advanced Services Right In Your Community
With our Positron Emission Computed Tomography, or PET/CT scan technology, we help doctors evaluate and determine the most effective treatment for many different conditions, including:
- Newly diagnosed cancer
- Cancer needing re-staging after treatment
- Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
Our 64-Slice CT Scanner generates exceptionally detailed, precise, 3D images of the inside of the body. The imaging process is fast and comfortable with less radiation exposure. Our imaging staff includes an experienced CT technologist and a RN certified in starting intravenous injections.
Higher resolution, variable-angle, dual-detector gamma cameras in our Nuclear Medicine Department show more distinct, detailed pictures at a faster rate to help doctors pinpoint a problem more quickly.
We are also proud to provide automated whole-breast ultrasound (ABUS) as an additional screening for women with dense breast tissue.
With interventional radiology (IR), a subspecialty of radiology, doctors perform treatments using image guidance with technologies traditionally used for diagnosing a condition. Examples are CT scanning, fluoroscopy, and ultrasound. With IR, there is less risk, less pain, and less recovery time. Also, the procedure is often less expensive compared to traditional open surgery. Included in the list of IR procedures done at Dominican Hospital are treatments for uterine fibroids and different types of cancer. In fact, we offer more than 50 different interventional radiology procedures as less invasive alternatives to traditional open surgery.
Less Invasive Treatment Through Imaging
