St. Rose Offers a Full Range of Radiology Services


The Radiology Department at St. Rose not only contains the very latest in equipment but also professional, caring, compassionate technologists and support staff. Each member of the department is dedicated to making our patients feel comfortable during procedures. Following is a list of radiology services available at St. Rose:

  • Computed Tomography (CT Scanning) - Combines the most advanced technology in electronics and computer science to produce X-ray images of a thin cross-section of the body. CT scanning can eliminate the need for exploratory surgery. Coronary and brain perfusion imaging assist our specialists in diagnosing and ruling out serious blood flow issues for the brain and heart. 
     
  • 64-Slice CT Scanners - Offered at the Siena Campus, the 64-slice scanners reduce procedure time to 10 or 20 seconds and are equipped with the latest dose-reduction hardware/software, thus greatly reducing the amount of radiation for patients. 
     
     

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) - Uses a powerful magnetic field (instead of X-ray) in conjunction with radio waves to produce more detailed pictures of the body. MRI is also used by our orthopedic surgeons at all three campuses to manufacture custom joint replacements, specific to the patient’s needs.
The Rose de Lima Campus is the first hospital in the United States to get GE’s new Wide Bore 450w 1.5T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine. Standard MRI machines have a bore width of 60 centimeters, which hasn't changed since the technology was introduced in the 1970's. Our new Wide Bore MRI has a width of 70 centimeters. While a 10 centimeter increase in diameter may not sound like much, it creates a significant – 37 percent increase – in the machine’s cross-sectional area, which translates into a much larger opening that is much more accessible and comfortable for all patients. 

GE used a wider and stronger magnet in the Wide Bore MRI which, in turn, enabled them to shorten the bore’s tunnel length. Now, if a patient’s abdomen is being imaged, the MRI table is positioned so that the bore covers just the mid-section of the body. This alleviates the patient’s feelings of confinement. The stronger magnet, wider bore and improved computer software capabilities provide a wider imaging field so medical staff can scan the body part to be studied in just a few, quick sequences. Typical MRI studies take between 30 minutes and an hour; however, with the new GE Wide Bore MRI, studies can be complete within about 10 to 20 minutes. 

  • Nuclear Medicine - Provides diagnostic information about the anatomy and function of bodily organs. Can show even minor abnormalities in an organ's structure and is one of the safest diagnostic tests available. The Siena Campus was the first hospital in the Las Vegas/Henderson area certified to perform DAT Scans, which are brain imaging with nuclear medicine to help diagnosis Parkinson's versus pharmaceutical-induced Parkinson's disease.
  • Mammography - Uses a low dose X-ray to identify breast cancer early in its development - before it can be felt as a lump. Our facilities are certified by the FDA and accredited by the American College of Radiology.
     
  • Digital Mammography - The Rose de Lima, Siena and San Martín Campuses use all digital mammography which produces a clearer image in less time.
  • Ultrasound - Uses sound waves to produce an instantaneous image of the body that appears on a video screen. Well-suited for use with children, evaluating pregnancy and as a screening tool. The Siena Campus provides TCD (Trancranial doppler) Ability to evaluate blood flow in the brain, which has applications for sickle cell disease.

  • Bi-Plane, Flat Panel Detector - The Siena Campus offers a bi-plane, flat panel detector for the study and treatment of brain abnormalities such as aneurysms and carotid stenosis.

  • Interventional Radiology – All three campuses provide a full service line of interventional Radiology procedures using state-of-the-art technology to guide every step the Interventional Radiologist takes. Examples include: Vertebroplasty, Uterine Fibroid embolizations, Catheter-guided chemoembolizations, AVM diagnosis and treatment options, TIPS procedures, and both arm and chest port insertions.
