Diagnostic Imaging Service




   

 

The Diagnostic Imaging Department at Angell supports the specialty services of the hospital by providing comprehensive in-house diagnostic expertise and technology. With three full-time board certified radiologists and all modalities available seven days a week, we are well equipped to manage all your imaging requirements.

Our in-house services include radiology, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, multi-slice CT, and MRI. Please see available services and/or contact us with any questions you might have. Our services are provided in three radiology suites, two of which have digital imaging, and a third with fluoroscopic capability. We also have one ultrasound room, a high-speed CT unit and a new MRI system with a range of imaging capabilities, allowing our board-certified radiologists to do the following types of studies:

  • orthopedic (e.g., soft tissue damage to the medial compartment of the shoulder)
  • abdominal
  • vascular (e.g., Circle of Willis and portosystemic shunts)
  • oncologic (e.g., assessing local tumor invasion for vaccines-associated sarcomas in cats)
  • neurologic

Our new MRI unit scans patients quickly, in about half the time as the previous version, thus reducing anesthesia time for the patient. The new system delivers even higher quality images, allowing our doctors to detect smaller and more subtle lesions to enable intervention at earlier stages in the disease process.
