Lighting the Way in CT Imaging
To provide you and your family with the ultimate in imaging technology, Palms West Hospital utilizes GE LightSpeed 16 Slice CAT (Computerized Axial Tomography) scanner and software. This is minimally invasive and ideal for such procedures as CTA (CT Angiography) for both arterial and venous blood vessels with amazing speed and accuracy. By differentiating between the body's normal and abnormal structures, it can pinpoint areas that need a closer look. Pediatric sedation is readily available if necessary.
Advanced Radiology Ready When You Need it
For improved image quality, Palms West Hospital offers the latest GE Precision 500 radiographic and fluoroscopic units. For fast, accurate imaging in an emergency, count on our advanced GE Proteus Radiographic Unit, reserved for emergency patients only. For traditional x-rays, no appointment is necessary. You may bring your prescription to our main registration.
High Definition MRI Technology
Our high definition magnetic resonance system from GE Healthcare, EXCITE HD, captures dramatic images of our patients, reminiscent of high definition television. This system provides physicians with outstanding image quality for a more confident diagnosis, and less likelihood of re-scans. Advanced capabilities and new applications available are:
The Ultimate in Ultrasound
Our comfortable private exam rooms and the latest technology make Palms West Hospital the place to be for ultrasound patients, including expectant mothers. Our sonographers create images with unsurpassed clarity and detail for both adult and pediatric patients.
